When taking a trip with a family you need space and the 2016 Kia Sorento SXL was the perfect vehicle for our family in a recent trip that we embarked upon. Why do I say this? Well, you see for us to be able to fold he seats down to the ground in the third row was SO important on this trip as we knew that we were going to have to pick up our oldest daughter from summer camp and we were going to stay away from home for a week. To be honest if we did not have a seats that folded flat, we would have been sunk, but the Kia delivered and while we were packed to the brim, we fit completely!
On top of space this vehicle was SO comfortable. The kids had all the room that they needed and they commented over and over how comfortable the seats were. I noticed right away how quiet the vehicle was and how smooth of a ride this was too.
When you are traveling for long periods you want a vehicle that makes the time feel like it is passing quickly and while I know that the Kia did not speed up time, because of the comfort I found that I was not focusing on the time that was being spent.
The vehicle was filled with so many safety features too which made me feel secure, especially with the fact that you get things like:
- Dual front advanced airbags
- Front seat mounted side airbags
- Side curtain airbags in the 1st and 2nd rows
- Anti-lock braking system
- Blind spot detection system
- And much more!
Best of all is the warranty. The Kia brand itself is so inclusive in its’ warranties. People who purchase from Kia will get:
- 10 year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty
- 5 year/60,000 mile limited basic warranty
- 5 year/60,000 mile roadside assistance
We loved how far we could get on a tank of gas too. With 22 mpg combined average and 25 mpg on the highway we did not have to fill up many times during the entire week which ended up saving us a ton of money!
Overall, for a price of $45,095 this fully-loaded Kia Sorento is a great buy for a family like mine and for yours too!
