Kia’s Top Three Vehicles for 2022

October 6th, 2021 by

2022 Kia Lineup


Kia’s 2022 models on sale right now are the Kia Soul, Telluride, and Sorento. Kia is confident this trio will be among the best-selling vehicles of the whole Kia lineup in the North American market. From the quirky styling of the Kia Soul to the spacious and practical Telluride and Sorento SUVs, consumers can experience authentic South Korean design in various flavors and customizable options. The majority of the changes for 2022 consist of new badging, upgraded interior features, and new exterior designs.       

2022 Kia Soul

Already in its third generation, not only does the 2022 Kia Soul receive new exterior and interior badging, but Kia has also decided to discontinue the manual transmission on the LX trim to make room for automation and a rumored EV Kia Soul in the future. There are plenty of infotainment upgrades for the 2022 model year, such as a standard 8-inch touchscreen display. However, a 10.3-inch unit is also available. The S, X-Line, and GT-Line trims now receive standard built-in navigation, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, smartphone wireless charging, and two extra USB ports. The base LX trim still boasts plenty of value for potential buyers by offering a Technology Package that includes notable safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and driver attention warning alert.

2022 Kia Telluride

Few changes are noted in the Kia Telluride, but these changes still contribute to the vehicle’s overall value, such as a refreshed front grille and the addition of a 10.3-inch touchscreen display on the LX and S trims. The Telluride makes for a perfect family SUV with a total seating capacity of eight passengers because of its spacious cabin and three-row seats. A mid-size SUV has strong safety ratings and handles reasonably well due to its standard 3.8 L V6 engine that produces 291hp and 262 lb-ft.        

2022 Kia Sorento

For the 2022 model year, the Kia Sorento gets a radical redesign featuring a more sporty and sophisticated exterior. Like the rest of the 2022 Kia lineup, the Sorento gets updated badging, and the X-Line Package is now available on all-wheel-drive versions of the Sorento S and the EX. The top-tier SX Prestige trim receives some updates as well, the standard 14-way memory seats come equipped with a new thigh extender, and heated rear captain’s chairs are added. A larger 10.3-inch touchscreen is now standard equipment on all trims except for the base LX trim. The Sorento is offered in three variants: gasoline, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid.
