Crossovers are often marketed as being some kind of a mutant hybrid between a SUV/minivan – with emphasis on the minivan. Such is not the case with the Kia Sorento. The Sorento defies all categories and can only be described as the ultimate road trip vehicle.
For 2017, Kia did not have to change much Kia Sorenro was completely redesigned with fresh sheet metal, larger dimensions and new mechanical underpinnings last year. It’s available in five- and seven-passenger configurations as well as five trim levels: L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited. The higher end SX and SXL include heated seats and steering wheel, push button start and a power liftgate. The SXL comes with leather interior and advanced safety systems. When you need it, the 2nd or 3rd rows in all Sorento trims fold down to offer an expanded cargo area. Kia is known for being generous with standard features, so it comes as no surprise that the 2016 Sorento offers a slew of convenience features. Highlights including smart welcome – activated by a smart key – that turns on interior and door handle lights and unfolds power mirrors, smart power lift gate with automatic close, third row A/C adjustment, foldable second and third row seats, a center console with hidden storage compartment, second row sun shades and a heated steering wheel.
When it comes to safety, never fear, the 2017 Sorento has all of the latest safety features to keep the whole family safe. These include: forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, rear park assist, blind spot detection with lane change assist, auto dimming rear view mirror, lane departure warning, antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front side airbags and front- and second-row side curtain airbags. Combine these features with a fundamentally stronger base featuring advanced high-strength steel and this is one of the safest CUVs on the road today. The 2016 Kia Sorento received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
With the Sorento, Kia proves you don’t have to compromise. It handles well, has plenty of power, is economical, spacious and safe for the whole family. There’s only one way to define such a vehicle: perfection.
