2019 Kia Sorento Interior

Wondering what Kia has 3rd-row seating? You’re in luck: the Kia Sorento is a top-rated Kia 3rd row SUV with room for up to seven adult passengers. In years past, drivers in the Mascoutah region have had the option to select a Kia Sorento with two rows and five seats, but this five-passenger seating is no longer available in new models. So, if you’re asking “What Kia Sorento seats seven passengers?” the answer, at least for the current model year, is “all of them!”

Kia Sorento Dimensions

When you want a Kia 3rd-row SUV, you usually need it for more than just passengers, and the Kia Sorento dimensions oblige. We’ve listed its most important interior dimensions from a recent model year:

  • Passenger Volume: 154.2 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (All Seats Upright): 11.3 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (Behind 2nd Row): 38.0 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (Behind 1st Row): 73.0 cubic feet
  • Head Room (Front / 2nd row / 3rd Row): 39.5 inches / 39.3 inches / 36.3 inches
  • Shoulder Room (Front / 2nd row / 3rd Row): 59.1 inches / 58.0 inches /52.8 inches
  • Leg Room (Front / 2nd row / 3rd Row): 44.1 inches / 39.4 inches / 31.7 inches
  • Hip Room (Front / 2nd row / 3rd Row): 56.7 inches / 56.4 inches / 41.4 inches

It’s tempting to load up a three-row SUV with cargo, and the sliding and auto-folding 40/20/40 split 2nd-row seats and 50/50 split-folding 3rd-row seats ensure you’re ready for whatever cargo you need. You’ll also have no trouble getting in and out of the cabin with all of the room to move around.
