Kia began offering a third row of seats for 2011, when it redesigned the Sorento SUV and switched from a truck-based, rear-drive platform to a car-based, front-drive platform (with optional all-wheel drive). From 2003 through 2009 (there was no 2010 model), the Sorento came with two rows of seats and five-passenger capacity.
Seats for five remain standard on the Sorento, and a two-place, split rear bench is optional on all models to increase capacity to seven.
Kia has made significant changes to the Sorento for 2014, including a revised chassis, new engines, an updated multimedia system and modest styling changes.
