Our episode of TestDrive Snapshot goes over all the new changes and differences found on the 2019 Kia Sorento EX V6 sold here in Canada in comparison to the 2018 Kia Sorento EX V6 we featured last year. Kia has updated the front grille and headlight design, along with some restyled front and rear bumpers. The exhaust tip was also updated, and power folding mirrors have been removed on Canadian models.
Inside Kia has updated the steering wheel, added a larger colour computer cluster for the driver, changed the hvac controls and vents, and updated the gear lever. Qi wireless charging is now available on this trim, however the rear window sun shades have been moved up to the EX Premium trim.
We take the 2019 Kia Sorento EX V6 on a quick road test in some light snow to talk about the winter performance and handling, the third row space for adults, and what the new 8-speed automatic transmission could mean for drivers. We wrap up by going over the fuel economy with this mid-size crossover SUV and talk about what we liked and disliked about the previous model year, and what has changed for us since filming that episode.
