The EcoHitch # 306-X7320 is a good fit for your 2017 Kia Sorento. This is a concealed style hitch, which means that once the hitch is installed, all but the receiver tube and safety chain hoops will be concealed behind the bumper. In my opinion, this hitch has the cleanest appearance once installed.

Is there a better alternative? If you're willing to pay the price premium for a concealed style hitch, then the EcoHitch would be the way to go. However, if price is a consideration the Curt # C13195 class III hitch which has a higher capacity and is much less expensive would be a good choice as well.

If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a wiring harness, part # 118269 for vehicles with the tow package or # 118583 for vehicles without the tow package. For a ball mount, use # D-28 and the # PC3 hitch pin/clip. For a trailer ball, use # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.

I'll provide a side by side photo showing the appearance of both hitches once installed. I'll also link to install videos for the hitches and wiring harnesses mentioned above.
