The 2016 Kia Sorento

2016 Kia Sorento

Over the last decade or so there has been an explosion of SUV's and crossover vehicles. It has been a very competitive market where every car maker has tried to claim the top of the crossover throne.

From large SUV's to smaller models the choices seem bountiful and at times almost overwhelming. Still, one car maker has stayed focused on offering buyers the benefits of an SUV without the over inflated bloat that can sometimes be found in this segment. 

Simple, easy, affordable, and useful takes the prize in this market and the 2016 Kia Sorento continues to be a leader that all others look up to. Kia has worked effortlessly to always improve on the vehicles they make and with every new model year you can see the difference. Kia is one of the only car makers that listens to their customers and makes changes to improve design, comfort, and safety. The best news is Kia keeps getting better and the vehicles benefit!

Remember, simplicity and function are important highlights that Kia has aimed to keep when designing the 2016 Kia Sorento. To that end, Kia has offered not one but two different 4 cylinder engines for the 2016 Kia Sorento.
How can a 4 cylinder engine work for an SUV? Kia has designed an efficient engine with direct injection. With direct injection, the efficiency of the 4 cylinders has increased dramatically. 

The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is able to produce 185 horsepower, but the smaller 2-liter four-cylinder engine with the direct injection and a turbocharger can hit 240 horsepower. With this configuration, you will not have the need for any additional power. The Kia Sorento has all it will need. In a lot of ways, you are better off with the smaller configuration. It is more efficient and has very good fuel consumption. When looking at other SUV's in this segment it would be very difficult to find the some kind of engine statistics.

Exterior Perceptions

Sometimes there are misconceptions with SUV's. They used to conjure up images of stuffy design without a lot of sportiness. Boy, have they come a long way!

Kia has always been interested in making sure every vehicle they design is not only mechanically sound but looks great as well. With that said the 2016 Kia Sorento available at Miami Lakes Kia is elegantly designed and looks sleek without sacrificing everything you look for in an SUV and Crossover.

You'll notice that it sits a bit wider than models past. Actually, it is a bit wider than a lot of other competitors in the marketplace. The longer wheel space is how the Kia Sorento is able to increase the cabin space from years past.

Also, with special features like a Smart Power Liftgate with a hatch that can me adjustable to your height the Sorento proves to be a highly customization SUV with modern looks and technology. Speaking of the liftgate, it is more than just a simple way to open the back of your Sorento. 

With the available hands-free option, the gate will open when it senses your smart key. That's right. No need to use your hands or your feet. It will automatically open when you walk next to the back of the Sorento. The future is here.

All this at an affordable price.

Interior space and design

2016 Kia Sorento Interior

The exterior of the 2016 Kia Sorento is boldly designed, but the interior plays a little more nicely. A little softer with controls and curves all in the right places.

There is an emphasis on roominess and safety all the while you and your passengers will experience maximum comfort. 

This years' model brags about more cabin space and improved seating for all your passengers. Also, makers of modern vehicles realize that we live in a highly mobile world and need to be connected wherever we go.

The infotainment system in the Kia Sorento in Miami will not disappoint with some of the standard features that you may only find in more expensive higher end crossovers.  

For example the Kia Sorento comes standard with  an AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM audio system, Bluetooth® Wireless Technology Hands-Free Connectivity, steering wheel-mounted audio, hands-free phone, and cruise control buttons, and a USB/auxiliary input jack. This makes it easy to connect your device to the sound system.

While "rocking out" to your favorite tunes has some great advantages lets not forget that you still need as much information available to you as possible.

Included in your infotainment system is a trip computer, an EcoMinder Fuel-Efficiency Indicator, drive mode select, power windows with driver one-touch auto-up/down, power door locks with speed sensing lock and impact sensing unlock, remote keyless entry, under-rear-cargo-floor storage compartment, and cloth seats with YES Essentials® Fabric Treatment. 

Remember, these are just the standard features and options. You can also upgrade to a more luxurious package with improved speakers and an upgraded infotainment system. As it has been mentioned several times, the 2016 Sorento really feels more like a luxury vehicle than an affordable SUV/Crossover!
