2015 KIA SORENTO
While Still Far From Its Rivals, The 2015 Kia Sorento Can Fulfill Its Mission
Kia seems to get better and better with every new year. The 2015 Kia Sorento is the optimal proof that things are going on an ascending path. It is versatile, reliable and elegant, but it also provides a great rapport for price and quality. With these features, it is definitely an amazing pick for families. It is among the top 20 most affordable mid-size SUVs, yet the comparison with the competition might bring in both pluses and minuses. Practically, it provides less cargo space, but it is way easier to maneuver too. If you are looking for power, the optional V6 power is your answer. All in all, Edmunds bets on a great middle solution.
"If traditional compact SUVs are just too small for your tastes but you don't need a true midsizer, the Sorento may satisfy your need for something in between.”
Is the interior comfortable enough for your family?
The 2015 Kia Sorento has been introduced to the market with an improved appearance, both on the inside and the outside. The manufacturer has enhanced the cabin as well, not to mention about the seats. Basically, this model features a third row of seats, yet they are relatively small. They obviously cannot accommodate any adults, but they make some good options for kids. This is exactly the reason wherefore the cargo space has been reduced. The innovative and patented UVO infotainment system is a top notch feature, while the rear camera, USB port and Bluetooth connectivity make it look gadget-like.
What the new Kia Sorento hides under the bonnet
The 2015 Kia Sorento will come with a four cylinder engine. Do you want more power? The optional V6 engine is worth a shot too. Any of these engines will work along with the six speed automatic transmission. The 20/27mpg city/highway EPA has a decent rate, yet the V6 engine does not bring any major changes. While on the road, the ride is quite comfortable for all passengers. Steering is simple and smooth, not to mention about switching gears.
In the end, Kia Sorento will not be a perfect car, but at least it will stick to its original purpose. Or at least this is what the experts at AutoTrader believe.
"As Kia continues to make inroads in every sector, the automaker is still struggling with one of the most competitive fields, the 7-passenger crossover-SUV segment. […] Although it lacks the style and sophistication [...], the Sorento still fulfills the primary mission of a family SUV.”
