How much will Kia Sorento insurance cost you? If you want to learn how to save, read on, and we’ll show you. The Sorento is a midsize SUV in Kia’s lineup. Starting at just around $23,000, the Sorento is an excellent buy. However, you have to look at the associated costs of owning a Sorento. Thankfully it provides a pretty good fuel economy for an SUV, getting an MPG of 22/32.
Bear in mind that car insurance premiums will vary from driver to driver and insurer to insurer. However, on average, Sorento owners paid around $1,600 a year, which equates to just over $130 a month.
Factors like driving histories, demographics, and even one’s credit score can be used to calculate an insurance premium. For example, if you’re 25, male, and have had a few brushes with car accidents in the past, your insurance premium will go up. You will be viewed as inexperienced and with the driving record, perhaps a bit reckless.
However, there is one sure way to lower your insurance premiums. By doing research you can ensure that you get the best deal. This is why it’s important to get at least 3 quotes from different companies. Not every insurer will have the discounts or incentives that the other has.
The Kia Sorento has been impressing in recent years. Its excellent handling puts you in control behind the wheel. It provides a quiet, comfortable ride, and the 3rd row 50/50 folding bench can even cater to adults for short rides. This provides a suitable alternative to bigger SUVs with 3rd rows.
Its offered in 2 trim levels: The base LX and the EX trims. The LX comes standard with a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine, while if you upgrade to the EX it nets you a 3.5 liter V6. While the LX engine is enough for every day purposes, you really notice the difference with the EX, when you need that extra bout of power in a pinch.
The LX comes with such features as:
• Air Conditioning
• Blue tooth connectivity
• CD/MP3 radio
• Power Accessories
However, the EX trim will net you such amenities as rear parking sensors, rear camera, leather seating, and sunroof.

Although the IIHS hasn’t yet rated the 2012 Sorento, their ratings of the 2011 version are good. The 2011 Sorento is recognized as a top safety pick by the IIHS, and received scores of “good” on front, side, rear, and roof impact tests.
