The Kia Sorento is truly all-new for the 2016 model year. It comes with a tweaked platform—three inches longer both in the wheelbase and overall— a new engine, and all kinds of added conveniences. Sure, those improvements might come with a bit of a bump in price, but the quality far outstrips the price tag. In other words, get ready for the new Sorento to rule the midsize crossover market.
Technically, you can make this a seven-passenger vehicle—with an optional third-row seat tacked on in back. It’s a great option for big families, soccer moms, and anyone else who has to transfer bundles of children from place to place. However, it’s also a versatile design; the third row folds down to give you an incredible amount of cargo area.
Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. That engine can be paired to either a front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive system. Either way, you’re getting a vehicle with 240 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, capable of towing up to 5,000 lbs., and still able to afford you an excellent 27 mpg on the highway.
Place a beautiful new design around all these excellent standard features and you’ve got yourself a winner. Come see us at Bill Walsh Kia to learn more about the 2016 Kia Sorento now!
