2016 Kia Sorento

2016 Kia Sorento

 

The 2016
Kia Sorento is an all new car. It has been completely redesigned for this model
year and is now better than ever. So far, it has been widely regarded as the
highest quality Sorento ever and a real contender in the midsize crossover
market. Kia has done a great job!

The 2016
Kia Sorento is a three row crossover that delivers just about everything the
modern family needs. It's roomy, refined and delivers on every count. Having
only had a redesign in 2014, the Sorento is enjoying another complete makeover
for 2016.

Changes
include a slightly longer and wider wheelbase, better interior materials, more
technology, strengthened body, upgraded suspension, tweaked steering and
improvements in handling and engines. That's quite the upgrade!

The
exterior or the Sorento looks much more mature. The tiger nose is still
present, but Kia's designs go from strength to strength. The front end still
embodies Kia's signatures, but also looks a little bolder and more appealing.
The profile is smooth, with nothing to stop the eye moving down the panels. The
rear is tidy, with little to interrupt those flowing lines. Even the rear
spoiler flows nicely at the top.

Inside, the
quality improvements about. Materials are better, interior space has improved,
there is still plenty of technology and seating is very well done. The seats
are comfortable and supportive, the driving position uprights and offering
great visibility. There are also plenty of cubbies and storage options, which
suits the purpose perfectly.

Engines and options

The Sorento
comes with either a 2.4-litre four cylinder that delivers 185 hp and 178 lb-ft
of torque, a 2.0-litre turbo four with 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque or a
3.3-litre V6 engine that produces 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. Each uses a
six speed automatic transmission to send power to the front wheels.
