Top 10 Family Cars: #7
2011 Kia Sorento
The 2011 Kia Sorento is our new favorite in what we often label the two-and-a-half-row segment. If you need three rows on a daily basis or plan on putting adults in the way back, you'll be better served by something larger. But if your three-row needs are occasional and typically involve elementary-schoolers, the 2011 Kia Sorento is a more affordable, more fuel-efficient, more maneuverable alternative. A superior mix of ride, handling and interior appeal helped cement the Sorento's spot on this year's list of Top 10 Family Cars.
