What is a Kia Sorento’s oil type?

We recently bought a brand new Kia Sorento, but I’ve already managed to misplace the owner’s manual. The oil is a little low. What kind of engine oil does a 2022 Kia Sorento take?

Your new Kia Sorento’s oil type is SAE 0W-20 or SAE 0W-30 engine oil, depending on what kind of engine your model has.
The 2022 Kia Sorento has one of two engines—a Smartstream G2.5 GDi or a Smartstream G2.5 T-GDi.
Here’s the oil type you’ll need depending on your engine:
  • Smartstream G2.5 GDi: SAE 0W-20 engine oil
  • Smartstream G2.5 T-GDi: SAE 0W-30 engine oil
It’s a good idea to check your oil routinely—aim for every other time you fill up your gas tank.
Having a routine can help in lots of areas in your life, including the well-being of your car. For instance, Kia recommends changing your oil and filter every 8,000 miles. And car insurance experts recommend checking insurance prices every six months.
