Ranked as the #4 Affordable Midsize SUV by U.S. News & World Report, the 2016 Kia Sorento EX can manage families with five to seven members. Completely redesigned for this model year, this crossover boasts higher quality materials and more room than ever before. Behind the third row is 11 cubic feet of cargo space that can row up to 73.5 cubes.
Under the hood rests a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive, the Sorento has a fuel economy set at 24 mpg combined (21 city/29 highway). It also earned a solid 5-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The EX trim level includes 18-inch wheels and sound-reducing windows that make driving at high speeds more enjoyable. The cabin is draped in leather upholstery and is loaded with updated tech options. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerts help to prevent accidents on the road.
