Last month I had the opportunity to test drive a 2016 KIA Sorento SX for the entire week before Christmas. It was just like a huge Christmas present from Santa! To keep within the holiday spirit this amazing cars was, of course, Remington Red and it was truly a joy to drive. If you haven’t ever driven a KIA or maybe it’s been awhile, you won’t believe how much has changed with KIA vehicles over the years. This car is super sleek, strong and is all about maximum comfort.
The exterior may seem pretty standard for KIA but if you get a bit closer you’ll be warmly welcomed by the Sorento as you approach the vehicle at night. When the Smart Welcome System detects your Smart Key, the outside mirrors automatically unfold and the door pocket lights immediately illuminate! Awesome!
Are there more super smart features on the KIA Sorento? Why, yes! There are more! The Smart Power Lift gate is amazing. If you’ve ever needed to open the lift gate of your vehicle and had your hands full, then you’ll fully appreciate this feature that is standard in the 2016 KIA Sorento SX. Simply stand behind the Sorento with your Smart Key and the lift gate opens automatically ~ no hands or feet required!
Every time I am fortunate enough to test drive a vehicle from DriveShop, I am super impressed and get totally spoiled with the SIRIUS XM Radio. I love listening to my favorite station ~ 80’s on 8! To top off the great selection of music, the Infinity Audio System brings my music to life with crisp, clear sound. My absolute favorite feature has got to be the Surround View Monitor system. I may be easily impressed but this is seriously an awesome safety feature to have in a vehicle. An all-around view is displayed on the navigation monitor with real-time views from four different cameras, plus a “bird’s eye view” of the car for maximum safety and convenience.
