What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Kia Sorento

Kia Sorento Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 0 I average about 22-25 miles/gallon, but only if I use a fuel addative every 5,000 miles. If not I get at best about 21miles/gallon. see full Kia Sorento review
2012 4dr SUV 276-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Average fuel economy at 22.5 MPG is lower than expected but still not bad. see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 276-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Always want more MPG but it is at least 25% better than my 2006 Ford Explorer. After 15K miles of highway, city and occasionally pulling a 5'x10' trailer, I'm averaging exactly 20.9 MPG. see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I average 22 mpg in mosty city driving. Not bad for its size and weight. see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
For a rather large crossover the fuel economy is absolutely amazing, check it out, it speaks for itself, and in the frist month we are getting exactly the rated efficiency, very pleased. see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4

30% better than my previous vehicle see full Kia Sorento review

For a bulky and powerful SUV, it achieves a greater gas mileage than expected. see full Kia Sorento review
Kia Sorento Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2012 4dr SUV 276-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I expected the fuel economy to be somewhat better than 22.5 MPG. see full Kia Sorento review
2012 4dr SUV 276-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Horrible fuel especially in stop and go traffic. I drive approximately 30 miles per day and within a week the take is nearly empty. see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The window sticker said it would get 29 mpg on the highway. I did a 500 mile trip and averaged 25 mpg. On my last 5 vehicles I averaged 2 to 3 mpg more than the window sticker when on the highway. Something is wrong with this picture. see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
my commute is very short and I am averaging 16mpg despite the 'eco'light being on, which sucks see full Kia Sorento review
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4

About 20 to 25% less than EPA estimates see full Kia Sorento review

Not been brave enough to calculate fuel economy yet, but my Audi A6 1.9tdi used to return 33mpg whilst towing. I doubt the Sorento will get near that even solo! see full Kia Sorento review
2005 4dr SUV 192-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Not great but we knew that going in. I try to drive as economically as possible and can usually squeeze 18-19 mpg in mixed driving (70%/30% split between highway and local). see full Kia Sorento review

Getting 14-15 MPG out of a V6. Wish it were closer to 20 MPG. see full Kia Sorento review
