When it comes to the initial acceleration, the 2020 Kia Sorento goes head-to-head with the rivals. It may not be the fastest but it certainly isn’t the slowest either. You have enough rumble to get you on freeways and more. Don’t push it too hard because the engine on the 2020 Kia Sorento runs out of breath pretty quickly after hitting the 60MPH mark and takes forever to complete the quarter-mile run against the competition. It comes out as the slowest car in comparison with respect to its quarter-mile timing of 17.2.

The braking on the 2020 Kia Sorento is quite sure-footed and has an evident bite to it. Although it is not the best braking car in its segment it’s not the worst either. The ride takes some time to come to a complete halt but it does so with composure and the car doesn’t sway away from its path. During the emergency braking test, the car decelerates from 60MPH to zero in 116 feet which is a little slower than 2020 Ford Explorer.
