2019 Kia Sorento SXL First Test: Korean Pilot

2019 Kia Sorento SXL First Test: Korean Pilot After redesigning the Sorento for 2016, Kia revealed the refreshed version of its popular midsize crossover late last year. Following three years on the market, that was probably a smart decision. But unless you park both versions next to each other, you probably won't be able to tell the difference. The question is, though, does the new Sorento drive any differently than it did before? We brought in a 2019 Kia Sorento SXL with a V-6 and all-wheel drive to find out. © Motor Trend StaffGranted, the Sorento was already a solid midsize crossover.

Toyota's popular Highlander three-row crossover SUV enters its fourth generation with an all-new 2020 model debuting Wednesday at the New York Auto Show.

When the family hauler goes on sale in December, it will face formidable competition in form of the redesigned Ford Explorer as well as segment mainstays including the Honda Pilot , Chevy Traverse and Kia Sorento , among others. Let's dive into the numbers and see how the redesigned 2020 Toyota Highlander stacks up with some of the segment's finest and most popular vehicles.

The 15 Cars Most Likely to Last 15 Years

The 15 Cars Most Likely to Last 15 Years The average age of a car or light truck on U.S. roads and highways is around 12 years. Some makes and models are so well-made, however, that their original owners keep them for 15 years

If the Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander don’t sound appealing, there are plenty of other choices. The Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX-9, Ford Explorer , Chevrolet Traverse , Hyundai Santa, Kia Sorento , and Volkswagen Atlas all offer a similar combination of space, features, and price, as does Subaru’s

Engine, transmission and towing

At first, the Highlander will be available only with a carryover 3.5-liter V6 engine featuring the same horsepower, torque and towing figures as last year's model. The eight-speed automatic transmission is also carryover. By February of next year, the Highlander Hybrid will be rolling into dealerships with a powertrain much different than the 2019 Highlander Hybrid.

Instead of electrifying a V6 engine up to 306 horsepower, the new four-cylinder Highlander Hybrid will have to work with 66 fewer ponies. However, because the hybrid is now the base powertrain, standard horsepower is up by 55, making the Toyota much more competitive with the segment's other base powertrains.

2020 Ford Explorer is better in almost every way

Merging electrons with four-cylinder frugality means significantly improved efficiency. Toyota estimates the 2020 Highlander Hybrid will get 34 miles per gallon combined, a substantial 5-mpg improvement over last year. The most efficient versions of the other (gas only) midsize crossovers listed here average 23 mpg combined, so the fact that the Highlander Hybrid might beat that average by 11 mpg should captivate potential buyers. Ford has yet to release fuel economy specs for its new Explorer Hybrid, which goes on sale this summer, but V6 power could put its figures more in line with the 2019 Highlander Hybrid.

At this early stage, Toyota hasn't said specifically whether the Highlander Hybrid will use a continuously variable transmission. But from how Toyota has described it so far, the transmission sounds similar in concept to the CVT being used in the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid , so it's probably safe to assume the Highlander Hybrid will incorporate this type of transmission, as well.

Toyota has yet to quote a tow rating for the hybrid, but if the smaller 2019 RAV4 Hybrid can tow 1,750 pounds, its big brother should be able to pull at least that much.

Tech and safety

The 2020 Highlander comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on an 8-inch touchscreen, plus satellite radio and in-car Wi-Fi. Available features include embedded navigation, a 12.3-inch touchscreen and an 11-speaker, 1,200-watt JBL premium audio system.

Like the Highlander, the 2020 Ford Explorer also comes well equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an 8-inch touchscreen and Wi-Fi. The Honda Pilot isn't nearly as generous with standard tech, where all you get is a 5-inch LCD (in fairness, most buyers purchase higher trim levels, which have more comparable feature sets). Things look up again with Chevy's Traverse. It comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on a 7-inch touchscreen, as well as Wi-Fi.

Ford Taurus Production Ends in the U.S.

Ford Taurus Production Ends in the U.S. Ford is cutting sedans from its U.S. lineup, so this announcement comes as little surprise. The automaker has officially ended production of the Taurus in the U.S. The final Ford Taurus rolled off the line at the Chicago Assembly Plant last week. More than 8 million copies were built here over the course of 34 years. The Taurus debuted at the 1985 Los Angeles Auto Show as a replacement for the midsize LTD sedan. When it arrived, it featured a 3.0-liter V-6 engine with just 140 hp, and a four-cylinder option followed shortly after. In 1989, Ford introduced an SHO version with a 220-hp V-6 engine. From 1992 to 1996, it was the best-selling car in the U.S.

There are of course numerous other worthy contenders, including the Chevrolet Traverse , GMC Acadia, Volkswagen Atlas, Nissan Pathfinder, Hyundai Santa Fe and the best-selling Ford Explorer , so The Toyota and Hyundai lead the pack in horsepower, with the Toyota taking top honors by just 4 horses.

When it comes to advanced driver-assistance features, the Highlander shines with its standard Toyota Safety Sense suite of features. Features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition, automatic high-beams and adaptive cruise control. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert come equipped on all but the base trim, while a 360-degree camera is standard on the top Highlander Platinum.

The 2020 Ford Explorer looks to be well equipped, too, with standard pedestrian-detecting automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high beams. There's even a self-washing rearview camera in case you dust it up while doing some light off-roading -- or, more than likely, during snowy or wet weather.

The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse has style and space for families

The Honda Pilot's standard driver-assistance tech is much more comprehensive than its cabin tech. With the Honda , you get automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beams. The Traverse and Sorrento, on the other hand? Diddly squat. If you want driver assistance on those SUVs , you're going to have to pay extra.

Cargo space

Last year, the Highlander offered mid-pack cargo room. This year, the Toyota now offers less-than-mid-pack cargo space. With the third row folded, the 2020 model is down a couple cubes compared with the 2019 model, but when you fold the second and third rows, the new Highlander offers 10 cubic feet less space than its predecessor.

Headroom and legroom

Toyota has yet to release headroom and legroom stats for its new Highlander, so let's hope the decreased cargo space specs above aren't a bad omen for the redesigned SUV.

Last year, the Highlander shined with its superior front legroom, but all the way in back, its third-row headroom came in last place against the competition listed below. To add insult to injury, the 2019 Highlander's third-row legroom was an embarrassing 27.7 cubic feet. Hopefully Toyota has learned its lesson from the previous generation.

Pricing

Last year you couldn't get a Highlander base above $50,000. It's unlikely you'll be able to surpass a $50,000 trim-level price on the 2020 model either. That's at least partially because last year's Hybrid Limited with Platinum Package used a more expensive V6 engine. This year's hybrid uses four-cylinder power, while the V6 option stands alone. Those changes should help the Highlander keep its price competitive rather than becoming listed through the stratosphere like the upscale-leaning Ford Explorer Platinum, which starts at just shy of $60,000.

Speaking of the Explorer, Ford will announce the Explorer Hybrid's pricing soon, but for now, it's safe to assume its price will hover around the 2019 Highlander Hybrid's $38,265 base price.

According to this tale of the tape, the 2020 Toyota Highlander is definitely more competitive than before. The hybrid model's fuel economy should be a particularly compelling draw. Updated infotainment and a healthy suite of driver-assistance features sure aren't going to hurt, either, though abbreviated space might.
