Midsize SUVs are all about family use, and the Kia Sorento is a great example. This three-row SUV can be configured for six or seven passengers, and it's available in strictly economy configuration starting at $29,590 for the base LX trim, or in several trim levels leading up to the top SX-Prestige trim that we tested.

Any of the Sorento trim levels can be a great choice depending on your budget and your needs, but at the top end of the spectrum, the SX-Prestige can compete with the premium brands at a substantial discount off the premium price.
