It's a crowded road out there, but you can maneuver with added confidence thanks to Kia's innovative Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technologies. Newly available additions include Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), and Park Distance Warning – Forward (PDW-F).
The available Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW) system helps you manage blind spots on the side and rear areas of your vehicle, alerting you with a light on the outside mirrors if it detects objects not in your view while driving.
When you're in reverse, the available Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) warns you with both audible and visual signals if it detects oncoming obstacles while backing up.
Enjoy the added control and convenience of available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC). SCC is designed to adapt to your driving environment by automatically applying the brakes, or accelerator, to help maintain a predetermined distance from a vehicle it detects in front of you. In fact, it's so smart it can bring the vehicle to a complete stop and start off again with just a tap of the accelerator pedal in certain circumstances.
With available Forward Collision Warning (FCW), your 2019 Sorento can detect road hazards ahead in certain situations, even when you don't. FCW gives audible and visual alerts when it detects a potential hazard in your path. The available Forward Collision Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection (FCA) may actually apply the brakes to help reduce the effects of a possible impact that the system senses.
Get a little help staying alert and aligned. Available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) monitors the position of your Sorento under certain conditions and will provide an audible alert if you drift. As an added measure, available Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) may intervene by applying corrective steering if it senses you drifting outside your lane.
A bright idea on the road comes to life with advanced lighting technology. The available Low Beam Assist (LBA) is designed to adjust and angle the light as you take corners to keep your path illuminated, while the available High Beam Assist (HBA) can automatically dim the high beams when it detects other vehicles to help keep things safer on both sides of the road.
Ease into tight spaces a little bit easier with this advanced drive-assist technology. Using sonar sensors integrated in the new Sorento's bumpers, the available Park Distance Warning Forward and Reverse gives an audible warning when the system detects you nearing other vehicles or objects. And for a comprehensive sense of space, the available Surround View Monitor (SVM) gives you a 360° bird's eye view of your Sorento in relation to surroundings.
Whether you're off-road or in-town, the new 2019 Sorento delivers dynamic handling, performance, and power to tackle any adventure.

Style and comfort don't take a back seat for rear passengers with available heated second row seats, available premium trim accents, and standard sliding and auto-folding second-row seats.
The sky's the limit for scenery thanks to an available expansive panoramic sunroof. Complete with a power sunshade and an expansive glass panel that tilts or slides open to give you just the right amount of sunlight and breeze. For even more tailored comfort, available second-row retractable sunshades offer a cooler cabin and help reduce sun glare for rear passengers.
You're definitely in the driver's seat when it comes to comfort thanks to the available 14-way power driver's seat that features 4-way lumbar support as well as a seat-cushion extension to make positioning even easier. And the available Integrated Memory System (IMS) stores driver's seat and outside mirror positions for up to two drivers.
