Kia Motors America has expanded seating for its 2019 Sorento mid-size SUV to seven-passenger seating over three rows and added new driver-assistance systems and an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2019 Sorento, which debuted ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show, also added exterior styling improvements, a standard 7-inch touchscreen, and wireless charging.

Kia's Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) package is now standard on the EX, SX, and SX-L trims and includes forward collision warning with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, driver inattention warning, and lane-keeping assist.

Two engines, including the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with six-speed automatic and 3.3-liter V-6, carry over. Kia is now pairing the V-6 with a new eight-speed automatic. The vehicle loses its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, but will eventually gain a diesel option, the company announced at a Nov. 30 press conference.
