Kia Sorento makes Consumer Reports top ten for 2016

Kia Sorento makes Consumer Reports top ten for 2016

Every year, Consumer Reports gives us their opinion on the best cars, trucks, SUVs and vehicles of all kinds. The reputable American organisation works hard to provide reliable information that can be used with confidence in buying decisions and we like their work. We also like the fact that the 2016 Kia Sorento made it into their Top 10 best cars of 2016 category.

They named it best midsize SUV and we must say we agree.

They said:
“This is a great SUV hiding in plain sight. Most midsized crossovers often feel like uninspiring errand runners. But the Sorento offers class-above elegance at mainstream prices. It’s a shade smaller than its midsized competitors, but that allows the Sorento to be city-friendly while still offering the space and features of a larger vehicle.

“The smooth 290-hp V6 is responsive with competitive fuel economy, and the suspension absorbs the worst bumps and ruts with dignity while still giving you confidence in corners. The interior design is flat-out gorgeous. Well-above-average predicted reliability combines with good crash-test results. There’s a new king of the category.” (Source)

2016 Kia Sorento
The 2016 Kia Sorento has definitely come of age. It is now a mature, credible midsize SUV suitable for families and discerning buyers. With improved design, a nice interior, reliable engines and a great price, there is every reason to choose a Sorento.

The design is simple and elegant. While an SUV, it has car styling and handling and drives much more like a sedan than an SUV. The round edges, friendly fascia, sloping roofline and quality trim make for quite the presence.
There are three engine options for the 2016 Kia Sorento. Standard on L and LX is a 2.4-litre four cylinder that produces 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 2.0-litre turbo four that delivers 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and a larger 3.3-litre V6 that is good for 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. All use a smooth six speed automatic transmission to send power to the front or all wheels.

The Sorento is available as a five or seven seater across five trim levels, L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited. As you would expect from Kia, there is a generous amount of technology and features throughout the range as well as a selection of advanced safety features.

The 2016 Kia Sorento is very competitively priced given how much car you get for your money. It is one of the many reasons you should consider one if you’re in the market for a top class midsize SUV. Visit Kia of Hamilton, 1885 Upper James St, Hamilton ON, L9B 1K8 to see if for yourself!
