About Kia Sorento

The 2016 Kia Sorento builds on everything we already like about Kia's midsize crossover SUV. The new Sorento is bigger, but not so much so that it sacrifices the old Sorento's maneuverability. The 2016 Sorento also has more high-tech features, offering things like adaptive cruise control, an all-around-view camera, and Siri Eyes Free for your iPhone. You have a new engine to choose from, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that splits the difference in performance and fuel economy between the standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and the upgrade 3.3-liter V6 engine. The styling inside and out is sharp and spot-on, and the driving experience is also markedly improved. We'll put it this way: If you liked the old Sorento, you'll love this new one.

"This is my fourth Kia, the others were the Optima models. They were all good, but I wanted something that could pull my boat and travel trailer. The V-6 model has that capability, with better gas mileage than my pickup truck. The Sorento drives nicely, corners and bad roads aren't a problem. Since I am hard of hearing I really appreciate how quiet this car is, much quieter than the Forester and RAV 4 I test drove. And the most comfortable too. I can fold down the two rear seats and sleep in this little SUV if I have too, and I'm over 6'2. Too soon to know the reliability , but my other Kia's were all good, and with the 10 year warranty I'm not worried."

"I purchased this car in April 2015. Originally went to test drive the 2015 Optima and saw the Sorento while waiting for the salesman. Test drove the Sorento and instantly loved it. This is my first new car and I bought the base model. Have taken it on 2 road trips so far and have been very pleased. Comfortable ride whether driving or sitting in the passenger seat. Plenty of cargo space for our luggage and a cooler on the trip. Extra storage "under" the cargo area for smaller items is a bonus for things like eggs, or two liters of soda so they don't roll around. Easily handling, not bulky at all if switching over from a sedan. Have not driven it in snow yet but expect good things. I would buy another one without thought although I might spoil myself and get the tech package and heated seats"

"I bought the first Sorento in 2010 and fell in love with it. I had driven Santa Fe's before that. This 2016 is by far the best of the 2014 and the 2015's that I have own. I still own the 2015. This new body style reminds me of the Veracruz only much quieter and more luxury items. Like the heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and the navigation package in the Sorento. Each model I have owned gets better, I did not think they could have improved the 2015 but this automobile is fantastic. The wife drives 130 miles round trip every day to work and she has never felt safer. The longer wheel base versus the 2015 make all the difference in handling and being sure footed on ice and snow. We are getting between 26 and 28 mpg daily with this unit on the wife's commute to work. Very pleased with the automobile. The engineers have actually put some effort and thought into the unit for ease of access to work on."
