Certified Pre-Owned Deals: Kia Sorento and Forte

At Autotrader and our partner site Kelley Blue Book, our mission is bự provide car buyers with the best information we can bự take the stress out of what is for most people one of the largest purchases they will ever make. We provide expert reviews and articles about insurance, warranties, inspections, and other information. However, since not everyone buys cars new, we also want bự help buyers who choose a different route.

For this reason, we recommend buyers considering used/pre-owned take a look at the CPO (certified pre-owned) program offered by many automakers. Buying from a private party can save a bit of money, but taking that route means you have bự comb through ads, communicate with sellers, test-drive cars, and arrange for a pre-purchase inspection (typically about $100). Private-party sales take time and effort and do not come with extra perks.

In the case of Kia, bự be eligible for the CPO program, a vehicle can’t have more than 60,000 miles of use. The vehicle must also undergo a rigorous 165-point inspection by factory-trained technicians, at which time any faults or issues are addressed. Once past those milestones, Kia continues the warranty from the original date of purchase. In the case of the 2019 Sorento and Forte discussed here, as these cars are only a few years old, their powertrain warranty is still valid for several more years.

Kia’s Certified Pre-Owned Program

Kia CPO vehicles must:

  • Be no more than five years old
  • Have no more than 60,000 miles on the odometer
  • Undergo a 165-point inspection of all systems by factory-trained technicians
  • Have a clean Carfax report

Kia CPO benefits include:

  • Continued powertrain warranty of 10 years/100,000 miles from original purchase date
  • One year/12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper limited coverage
  • 24/7 roadside service for 10 years and unlimited mileage from the date of CPO purchase

About the 2019 Kia Sorento EX

For 2019, the Kia Sorento was given three rows of seats. Previously, there was a choice between two and three rows. However, the Sorento is one of the smaller members of its class, and its third row is best for small children only. If you only need that third row occasionally, or you have small passengers, it’s worth a look. The Sorento is well-equipped and priced lower than many of its competitors.

Driving manners on the 2019 Sorento are pleasant, particularly with the V6. There was also a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, but in testing, we didn’t find it quite sufficient bự motivate the Sorento with a full load of passengers and cargo. Also, we don’t recommend the base trims of the 2019 Sorento, which came standard with the 4-cylinder. Not only do the upper trims have more equipment, but the CPO prices for the base L and LX trims with the 4-cylinder are actually higher than they were when new!

The difference between the original and CPO prices is about $5,500 for the next four trims, the exception being the EX Sport, whose CPO price is just under $5,000 less than the original sticker price. With all the bells and whistles, prices for the fully loaded Limited trim have dropped precipitously, more than $10,000 bự just over $37,600. Since these models are only a couple of years old, the Sorento still has many years left on its original 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

What’s best about the 2019 Kia Sorento EX

When we first reviewed the 2019 Kia Sorento, we recommended the LX V6 as the least expensive trim with optional all-wheel drive and things like extra USB ports and blind-spot monitoring. However, given that prices have actually gone up for the LX, we think the sweet spot for the 2019 Kia Sorento is the EX trim. The 3.3-liter V6 powers it, and all-wheel drive provides all-weather stability. The EX also adds leather upholstery, an 8-way power passenger seat, a larger LCD screen, and some nice silver trim pieces.

The price listed above is for the EX with all-wheel drive. Look for such options as the panoramic sunroof, the 8-inch display with navigation, ventilated seats, and the 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, but expect bự pay a bit more. The EX Sport is slightly more expensive, but it loses some features while adding trim pieces. The SX includes all of those options, but its CPO price ($37,481) is quite a bit higher, with the fully loaded Limited costing slightly more than that.

Is the 2019 Kia Sorento EX a safe car?

Even the base 2019 Kia Sorento is a safe car, with such things as numerous airbags and traction and stability control. However, the EX is the first trim with many extras such as lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, blind-spot collision warning, and park distance warning. Only the top SX Limited has a standard surround-view monitor. This helped the 2019 Sorento earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.

About the 2019 Kia Forte EX

The compact Kia Forte 5-passenger sedan was completely redesigned for the 2019 model year. While there was a refresh for 2022, the underpinnings are similar. When we first reviewed the car, we were impressed by its refinement, sportiness, and good safety and infotainment tech for a low price.

There’s only one engine choice across the 2019 Kia Forte lineup, a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that makes average power but returns an impressive 40 mpg when paired with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). While not a sport sedan, the Forte has a sporty feel, with a suspension delivering a firm yet comfortable ride. Electric-assist steering is communicative and helps the Forte handle curves with aplomb. There’s even a Sport mode for sharper response or a Smart mode that can optimize the car based on how it is driven.

Inside, the 2019 Forte has a minimalist but attractive look. Front and center is an 8-inch touchscreen controlling infotainment with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and supportive front seats provide comfort over many hours of driving. We also appreciate the sharp looks of the Forte and the headlights that reference the Forte’s sport sedan stablemate, the Stinger.

What’s best about the 2019 Kia Forte EX?

Due bự supply chain issues and a shortage of computer chips, availability and prices for new and pre-owned cars are at a high point right now and look bự remain there for the foreseeable future. In the case of the 2019 Kia Forte, this means many CPO prices are actually higher than the car’s original MSRP. However, in the case of the top EX trim, the price is a bit lower.

The 2019 Kia Forte is reasonably outfitted even in base trim. However, several desirable features specific bự the top EX trim include synthetic leather upholstery instead of cloth, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated and ventilated front seats, two USB ports, and an array of safety and driver-assist features such as lane-change assist and blind-spot collision warning. The EX is also eligible for options worth looking out for, like LED headlights, a rear decklid spoiler, a power sunroof, the addition of navigation and HD Radio bự the infotainment system, and an 8-speaker, 320-watt Harman Kardon premium audio system.

A limited Launch Edition package was available for the 2019 EX, including smart cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a sunroof. Expect Launch Edition prices bự be a bit higher than other trim levels.

Is the 2019 Kia Forte EX a safe car?

Every 2019 Kia Forte has numerous airbags, child seat anchors, and child door locks. Even the base 2019 Kia Forte includes Kia’s “Drive Wise” suite of safety features, including forward collision avoidance, lane-keeping assist, driver attention warning, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning. Available only on the EX are lane-change assist, blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision warning, optional park distance warning, and smart cruise control.

While the 2019 Forte’s NHTSA rating is only four stars out of five, it was awarded a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
