I drive a Suburban. It’s big, fits a bunch of kids and hogs a lot of gas. When Kia asked me if I would like to drive the Kia Sorento I was in to it…but doubted that it would be as roomy as they make it out to be. Once again, I was wrong. The Sorento has a TON of room in it!
I could not believe how much room was in this car! It doesn’t take up nearly the amount of room that the Suburban does, but it can seat 7 people! This is of course with the 3rd row seating engaged. Without the 3rd row seating you can comfortably fit 5 people, which just happens to be the size we need. I loved knowing that 3rd row seating could be engaged when needed though.
When the 3rd row seating is not in use, you can simply fold it back down and have a huge trunk area. I was impressed at how easily you could raise and lower the 3rd row of seats. I do not have much arm strength due to my RSD and I had NO problems doing this on my own.
Comparing this to my Suburban, I would have to say I like the Kia Sorento better. I still have plenty of room, still have 4 wheel drive and can zoom around much better in it…meaning it’s a bit easier to pull out in to traffic as well as park.
It has all the features that I have fallen in love with on the Kia’s. Heated seats, satellite radio, sun roof, plenty of leg room, it’s just loaded! I would love to have this car to tote my family here and there!
As with the Optima, I had neighbors coming out to admire the car. People are in such shock at how great looking these Kia cars are! The prices are right if you are looking for a new car and I would have to say this one has been my favorite so far! Thanks Kia for letting me check out the Sorento!
Next up…the Sportage!
