2019 Kia Sorento Interior

Wondering what Kia SUVs have three-row seating? You’re in luck: the 2019 Kia Sorento is a three-row Kia 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!”
