Why the Kia Sorento is the Best Crossover for You


The Kia Sorento has grown to be one of Kia's best-selling cars over-time in the crossover SUV segment. Let's take a look at everything Kia is doing right with the model. In any case, get in touch with JT's Kia of Columbia for personalized assistance.


Perfect Size


It's not so big that you feel like you're making your way around town in a ship, but large enough to fit a significant amount of cargo in it. However, there are no compromises made by the Sorento when talking about performance. With a maximum towing capacity of 5000 lbs and spacious standard seating for seven, the Sorento has never let its size come in the way of optimum performance.


Amazing Fuel Economy


The Sorento gives us amazing power and execution but remains frugal with gas. Here is how the trims of the Sorento stack up in terms of their EPA fuel economy ratings:


·       Sorento L with front-wheel drive – Has a rating of 22 miles per gallon in the city, 29 miles per gallon on the highway, and a combined 25 miles per gallon.

·       Sorento LX with Front Wheel Drive – The EPA ratings of this trim remain the same as those of the L mentioned above.

·       LX with All Wheel Drive – The EPA numbers come in at 21 miles per gallon in the city, 26 miles per gallon on the highway, and 23 miles per gallon combined.


As we can see, even though there's a slight dip in fuel economy with the all-wheel-drive variant, these fuel economy ratings of an SUV are comparable to a much smaller sedan.


Varied Safety Features


Kia takes the safety of its passengers very seriously, and the safety features of the Sorento can further prove this. Driver Assisting innovations such as Lane Keeping Assist, 360-degree monitoring, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert come as standard features across all the trims of the Sorento.
