2016 Kia Sorento Review

2016 Kia Sorento Review

I have found my next vehicle. Yep…I’m done looking because the 2016 Kia Sorento SXL AWD is mine…all mine. It just hasn’t made it’s way into my garage– for keeps. It did visit for a week though and I loved every minute of our time together. There are so many great features of the new 2016 Kia Sorento SXL.

Since it’s freezing in Colorado right now…let’s first talk about all the “heat” the Sorento offers. You’ve got your heated seats in both the front and back. My current car does not have this feature and this lady loves a warm hiney in the winter. But the steering wheel also has a warmer! Say what?! Nice.

The 2016 Kia Sorento also has tons of safety features as well. As a mom of two, I like the feeling of an extra set of “eyes” helping me drive safe. The Blind-Spot Detection System is amazing. It’s basically a symbol on the side mirrors that lights up when a vehicles is in your blind spot. It was really helpful in the daytime to keep me aware of passing drivers.

The SXL model also included the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and the Forward Collision Warning System. Plus the Surround View Monitor (SVM) provided  me a near-360° view of the Sorento right on the navigation screen. A big help when needing to squeeze through tight places.

Speaking of views….the panaoramic roof really caught my oldest sons attention. “Mom! Open that up!” So of course I did…

I don’t think I would ever get tired of all that light. I could even tell that baby Britton was digging his new view. What’s not to like?!

Like I said before, this SUV was perfect for our family of four. It handled great in the snow and it had plenty of space for both kids and all their stuff. The hubby even loved it too. Although if we bought or leased this baby it would be mine…all mine. 😉 Can’t you already see me in there?!


Disclosure: A week or so before Christmas, I was provided with a 2016 Kia Sorento for a week to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own cause I really want this SUV in my garage.
