About Kia Sorento

Kia gave the Sorento SUV a thorough makeover last year, enhancing its chassis, engines and interior. For 2015, the Sorento continues with only a few minor improvements designed to make it even more appealing to tech- and fashion-conscious buyers. The Sorento's 7-passenger flexibility makes it ideal for growing families, but Kia also offers a 5-passenger option that allows for more generous permanent cargo space. Although the Sorento scores big in the areas of power, safety and fuel economy, its biggest attraction is the amazing amount of features offered for the money. Because of its flexible seating, the Sorento can be cross-shopped with a number of popular models, including the Ford Edge, Dodge Journey, Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder.

"We bought our 2011 4 cyl. Kia Sorento last December. I read reviews about the mileage being a few gallons under the quoted mpg, but we have found that after the initial break-in of 3 months, driving 60-62 mph(our 2 lane highways are 55 mph) we get 30 mpg, and 67-69 mph on interstate yields the predicted 28 mpg. Drive faster and it'll be slightly lower; it's all in how fast you drive. City driving says only 13 mpg, but I think that's inaccurate because I can drive forever on a tank of gas. We traded a GMC Envoy for the Sorento, so my only real "complaint" is that the seats aren't as comfortable as my Envoy on long rides. I prefer cloth seats, so the Sorento heated cloth seats are a bonus for our very cold midwestern winters. The 4 cyl is just as good as our V6 was. I'm very happy with the zip in this vehicle. We have the 3rd row seating, although we usually have the back row down for storage. Still, it's nice to have the extra seating when we need it. The only other issue is with the Blue Tooth. Sometimes it rings phantom incoming calls and my voice name recognition won't work, but then I have a cheap cell phone. It all seems to work ok with my husband's phone. Overall, we are very happy with our Sorento and will trade for another when the time comes."

"Just turned 6000 miles, and I've had no problems at all. I just put winter tires on (235/65 X 17)and waiting to try it out in the snow. Mileage is about 20 aroung town, and mid 20's on the highway, best was 27 on the road. Not bad for a V6 with AWD. My wife really likes the sun-roofs, and the saddle & black interior. Comfortable seats and all the toys. I don't have to carry a mapcase anymore, the Nav system is super. I really enjoy the car. I do all the maintenance myself, and there's really very little to do. Good job KIA!!"
