When it comes to value, the KIA Sorento LX is hard to beat. Automotive journalists have given the mid-size crossover high marks for its spacious backseat and high-quality design. A sound-reducing windshield helps the cabin to remain whisper-quiet. Some of the LX model’s other standard components include a rear-view camera, rapid-charge USB ports, and a 4.3-inch touch-screen display. A strong four-cylinder engine gives the crossover plenty of pep. Gas mileage tops out at a competitive 28 mpg on the highway. If you plan to encounter wintry weather, opt for the all-wheel-drive package.
