Used 2013 Kia Sorento: Features and Specs

What Features Does a Used Kia Sorento Have?

The Kia Sorento is a great vehicle for North Edmonton Kia customers, and we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your purchase. Any features and specs of a used Kia Sorento are important for any potential driver. To shine some light on an older Sorento model, here’s an overview of the Kia Sorento in today’s post.

A value-packed vehicle in its base form, it comes with a wide range of options-engines, transmissions, traction control systems, interiors-so that almost anyone can find something that fits their needs. The exterior is beautifully detailed without following outmoded SUV trends.

The Sorento is available in three trim levels. There are three types of these: LX, EX, and SX. Power windows, locks, and mirrors are standard on the LX trim level of the Sorento, as well as cruise control, an AM/FM/CD player, a USB port, Bluetooth, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and air conditioning. .

Third-row seating is available as an option on this trim level and comes with the V-6 engine when ordered. For added comfort, you can also get a heated steering wheel or a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

In the meantime, the Sorento SX comes with its own body kit and sporty design side from the push-button start and automatic LED headlights and fog lights, the Sorento is also equipped with power driver seats and rear parking sensor. The third-row seat has an air conditioner, and the EX -V-6.rear. The Sorento SX comes with a body kit and sporty wheels. It comes standard with a voice-operated navigation system. The heated seats, the ventilated steering wheel, and the Infinity speakers are all optional.

As magical as this classic goes, let’s discuss some of its best features.


As a result of the lighter bodyshell, its engines will use slightly less fuel and emit less CO2 than its predecessor, but horsepower and torque will remain the same. Engineers have spent hundreds of hours tuning the suspension on Kia’s SUVs, creating a design that reflects the region’s characteristics.

There is also a check engine light on the 2013 Kia Sorento, just like any other SUV. It may be necessary to do some maintenance based on the engine light.


The ride and handling characteristics of this vehicle compare favorably with those of its real competitors. The increased rigidity has made bumps easier to hear but not feel due to an 18 percent increase in torsional rigidity. On dirt roads and loose surfaces, the Kia Sorento can be a bit of a challenge, despite its all-wheel drive capabilities.


Kia Sorento LX models come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generating 175 horsepower and 169 lb-ft of torque. Optional transmissions include a six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. With front-wheel drive, it gets 10 L/100km city / 7.5 L/100km highway / 10 L/100km combined / and with all-wheel drive, it gets 11 L/100km / 9 L/100km combined / and 11 L/100km combined.


Its mid-level engine provides little performance or economy for a car with a relatively low price tag and a low power output. A handbook or automatic transmission is available, as well as front or all wheel drive, and it has 175 horsepower.

Oil Usage

The amount of oil to use depends on the type and size of the vehicle, as well as its oil type. As a result of its smaller capacity, four cylinder passenger cars use less oil and tend to use conventional oil since they do not possess the power of engines with eight cylinders, which require full synthetic oil. Engines generally require five to eight quarts of oil per year. A four-cylinder engine requires approximately 4.7L of motor oil, while a six-cylinder engine requires approximately 6.6L.

The 2013 Kia Sorento is recommended to be filled with either SAE 5W-20 or SAE 5W-30. Your vehicle will also last longer with this kind of regular maintenance. The oil in your vehicle should be changed every 4,000 – 5,000 miles.


In addition to producing 191 horsepower and up to 7.8 L/100 km on the highway, this engine delivers some additional power to the Kia Sorento. It allows the Sorento to attain 0-100 km/h in less than 9 seconds and feels responsive.


The Kia Sorento is an excellent choice for comfort. It has comfortable front seats with additional seating is also available for the third row. The SUV comes with a comfortable third row, but its cargo space isn’t as large as that of rivals. Combined, the 2013 Kia Sorento can hold 72.5 cubic feet of cargo with its two rear rows folded down.
