Transporting a family or group of friends leaves you with several options on the automotive market. When that group grows beyond four or five people, however, those options shrink. Third-row crossovers offer comfortable and smooth transportation for families and groups larger than a compact crossover or sedan. These vehicles aim to give you the interior space of a van with the ability to traverse uncertain terrain in all weather. To put it simply, they’re built for big adventures!

The 2019 Kia Sorento builds upon the strengths of the widely-acclaimed 2018 Kia Sorento, adding standard UVO infotainment, active safety features and more to the 7-passenger crossover. Up against the 2019 Kia Sorento today, is the 2019 Mazda CX-9. Like Kia, Mazda has their sights set on moving upmarket. To do so will take an extraordinary vehicle. Is the CX-9 the way to the top for Mazda? Let’s find out!
