Ranked as the #4 Affordable Midsize SUV by U.S. News & World Report, the 2016 Kia Sorento EX is an exceptional choice for families. Able to carry five to seven passengers, this crossover boasts solid safety scores and plenty of space. The cargo area can be expanded from 11.3 cubic feet up to 73 cubes!
Under the hood rests a capable 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission, the Sorento has a fuel economy set at 22 mpg combined (19 city/25 highway). With the proper towing package, it can pull 3,500 pounds. According to Edmunds, it also earned a 5-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The EX trim level includes 18-inch wheels and a sound-reducing front windshield to make the ride more peaceful. Rear parking sensors help to prevent minor fender benders on the streets. The cabin is draped in leather upholstery and has heated seats for comfort during the bitter winter months.
