2017 KIA Sorento
Consumer Reports recently ran an article on the best cars for families. The one that rose to the top for families with school age children was the popular Kia Sorento. That was really no big surprise since this year Consumer Reports also awarded the Sorento one of their “Top Ten” picks for a vehicle in the category for a mid-sized SUV. You will see why when you see this sharp-looking redesigned family hauler at Westside KIA.
The CR organization said: “Our top-rated mid-sized SUV provides the room and space to keep a family comfortable and to bring along their gear”. Owners of the Sorento would add that this vehicle is just fun to drive. Anyway, this positive recognition by Consumer Reports and many other car critics is really a “no brainier”. You will agree that everything just comes together for a family car from high owner satisfaction to being very dependable and reliable. The Sorento is a perfect source of transportation for today's busy families.
The “icing on the cake” is this Kia Sorento has been redesigned and re-engineered for 2016. It is significantly roomier and more refined in nearly every way inside and out. The Sorento still offers a third row to bump up the passenger capacity to seven. As the well-known commercial goes...but wait, there is more! All models are longer, wider and taller, which means more interior room. That is one of the improvements you will quickly see and feel when you slide into those comfy seats for that important test drive from the friendly folks.
Also, you and yours will appreciate the Sorento's handsome cabin and upscale materials that you would see in those “pricey” S UV's out there and delivers more usable cargo space then some of the two row SUV's . This new Sorento offers a plethora of high tech systems that today's drivers expect for communication and entertainment. They include the available Kia UVO infotainment setup, an awesome 10 speaker Infinity surround-sound system that will just “rock you”, a panoramic sun roof and much more.
Since the Sorento is meant for families, Kia offers a slew of safety features from adaptive cruise control to the very effective and important forward collision warning. Safety organizations highly recommend to invest in as many safety systems that you can afford. The payback in dividends could be huge.
Now, when you drive off in your new Sorento on the test drive, you will quickly appreciate how this re-engineered Kia responds and performs. The Sorento's new suspension keeps a firm and composed and quiet ride. What may be under the hood is the standard and peppy 2.4-liter four with 185 lively horses that punches out 185 hp. If you desire more horses in your stable, then also test drive the popular 3.3-liter V6 with 290 horses and a pavement grabbing 252 lb-ft of torque. New for this year is the the aggressive 2.0-liter Turbo that punches out 240 hp and delivers 20/27 mpg. It even gets better as all-wheel drive is now available for drivers who want more stability in quirky driving conditions. This is a first for this class of vehicle.
