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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4

30% better than my previous vehicle
2007 4dr SUV 262-horsepower 3.8L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
For a bulky and powerful SUV, it achieves a greater gas mileage than expected.

I expected the fuel economy to be somewhat better than 22.5 MPG.
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.
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
About 20 to 25% less than EPA estimates
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.
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4

my commute is very short and I am averaging 16mpg despite the 'eco'light being on, which sucks

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!
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).
2005 4dr SUV 192-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Getting 14-15 MPG out of a V6. Wish it were closer to 20 MPG.
2005 4dr SUV 192-horsepower 3.5L V6

Put simply "It sucks"

I got the 4 cyl/FWD Equinox. It gets at or better than the city EPA estimate of 22mpg, typically getting 23-24mpg without AC, 22 with AC on. On the freeway, get 31-32mpg without AC, 29-30 with AC.

THE FUEL ECONOMY IS GREAT, i DRIVE ABOUT 25 TO 50,000 MILES PER YEAR THIS CAR HAS A 2.4 L - FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINE i WAS GETTING ON THE AVERAGE 22 TO 25 MILES PER GALLON THIS IS A GREAT PLUS FOR THIS CAR

Averaging 27 all around and 30+ on the hwy. With only 550 miles its only going to get better. 4cyl ia an awesome motor..

The highest MPG I've been able to get was a 33.4 MPG on a long trip a couple years ago. Our daily commute returns about 22 MPG with a lot of stop and go, and some highway merging etc etc. Very pleased.

Not as advertised - trying to do all the right things (timing lights, light foot, no idling, tire pressure, etc.) but lower than what i thought i would get when compared to 17.6 for an envoy (15 city/ 21 hwy) with 200,000 miles and bad driving habits.

Mileage poorer than my extended wheel base Montana van which had a similar power train and only a 4 speed transmission.

20 mile to the gallon may be 21 on a good day but thats it. not great for a 185 hp v6 gm could do a lot better
