Room for extras — like plenty of sunshine. As a crossover, the Sorento
is the definition of versatility. With comfortable seating and intelligently
designed storage spaces, it’s perfect for running errands around town.
When you’re lucky enough to get away for the weekend, the Sorento
has the flexibility to answer the call. Its second-row seats have a 60/40
split-folding design to accommodate extra passengers, cargo or both,
while available third-row seats are 50/50 split-folding. Both the second-
row and available third-row seats quickly and conveniently fold down
to provide a remarkable 72.5 cubic feet of cargo space. A dramatically
designed, tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof* that’s available extends along
the length of the roof and allows the interior to be filled with sunshine.
