Are you vehicle shopping before the holiday trips? Are you looking for a family friendly crossover? The 2014 Kia Sorento may just be the right one for you.
With an MPG of 20/26 the 2014 Kia Sorento is the way to go for a crossover.
For my test drive I received the 2014 Kia Sorento SX All Wheel Drive.
Living here in MI, it's important to have the all wheel drive with the harsh winters we have.
The steering wheel has mounted controls to make driving easier.
The center console/dash is really nice and sleek looking. I love the time displayed up on top, makes it so your eyes don't gravitate away from the windshield area as much.
Touch screen with sirius radio
It also had navigation which was really easy to navigate as well.
Features like the double panoramic sunroof
and the rear cupholders, made driving this crossover a breeze.
The Kia Sorento is a 7 seater. With 2 in the front, 3 in the middle and 2 in the rear, it's large enough for all your family and friends.
3 seater in the middle
Leg room in the second row.
The second row has a handle and it slides the seat forward and flips the front down for easy access to the third row.
I was surprised by the leg room in the 3rd row. Maybe not enough for a full grown adult, but plenty of room for a child.
My favorite part was the cargo space though
This is with the 3rd row up and in the seating position
There is a jack in the trunk, but there's also some storage room in there as well.
This is with the 3rd row down. There is a lot of storage room back there.
I also really liked that the rear doors had a screen over them to block out sun
Overall if you're looking for an affordable, fuel efficient crossover, then the Kia Sorento may be the right one for you. I would recommend this vehicle to anybody. It was a dream to drive and is really safe as well. It has Front Active Headrests, Advanced Airbag System and a reinforced body to ensure you're safe on the road. It also features Electronic Stability Control to help keep you on course and Hill Assist Control to prevent it from rolling backwards if you stop on a steep hill.
With a retail price starting at $24,100 this vehicle is definitely affordable.
