The Smart Buy Average Market Price
The Smart Buy Average Market Price is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions either in your local area or nationally. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the vehicle you have selected and as you have configured it. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations than your specified vehicle configuration. The data underlying the Smart Buy Average Market Price calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Smart Buy Average Market Price is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
The Sorento is Kia's entry into the cross-over utility vehicle (CUV) segment. The Sorento features unibody construction and a streamlined, modern appearance.

Alloy wheels, steering wheel audio controls, a rearview camera, fully automatic headlamps and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are just a few of the standard features offered. Some of the available options are dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, navigation system and proximity entry. For 2019 the Sorento is refreshed with new headlights and taillights, updated front and rear fascias, and now comes exclusivley with seven seats. Last year's 2.0-liter turbo has been dropped, but the V6's nine-speed transmission is all new.
