Through the years, family car categories have come into popularity like the wagon, the minivan, and SUV. Each category has its own strengths and weaknesses, but an evolved crossover like the 2016 Kia Sorento takes the best qualities of each one and fuses them in a modern crossover that pushes all the right buttons. The outcome blends space, performance, features, and a touch of off-road capabilities to become one of the strongest contenders in its class today.
A Robust Drive
The available 3.3L V6 engine is capable of producing 290 horsepower plus 252 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired with a 6-speed automatic, you have a highly capable engine that reaches new heights when you switch into Sport. The driving dynamics of the Sorento are also well-executed: the suspension and body are firm and responsive, while steering is precise.
When it comes to the interiors, it’s clear that cabin is designed masterfully. It is very spacious, assuring no cramped quarters from the front to the last row. There’s enough legroom and headroom to keep your passengers happy even during long drives. In addition, well-installed soft-touch materials abound, making it clear that the Sorento was styled with an eye for the upscale. For those who want more tech during their drives, the available UVO Infotainment system is a great option, along with other fantastic features.
By all measures, the 2016 Kia Sorento from El Paso, TX will no doubt be an impressive member of any family garage. Get behind the wheel and see for yourself when you visit a dealer near the area.
