has anyone towed with an automatic Kia Sorrento? What are views on towing auto or manual?

Yes.I personally have owned 3.5 ltr petrol,2.5 ltr,diesel,2,2 ltr diesel and currently another 2.2 ltr diesel.all of which have been auto and all very capable towcars.The best,so far,is the current late 2015 kx3.more mpg than any of the previous models and very "car like " to drive.Previously I have towed with both manual and auto vehicles and every time I have gone manual I have very quickly gone back to auto.The only sorento faults are.....early models...rust.mk 2 version (2.5 auto)...heavy road fund license cost......early mk 3 models....no self levelling and can be a little unstable without spring upgrades.

Initially, I was against buying an automatic, always 'preferring to do it myself' but we wanted a Discovery 4 so took the plunge and went for it. Would never go back to a manual now.
