April 9, 2015

Kia has unveiled its all-new 2016 Sorento crossover at the Paris Motor Show.2016 Kia Sorento should remain one of our top recommendations for a small or midsize crossover SUV.

A spacey interior, optional features and a quiet, comfortable ride make the Sorento a great choice.

2016 Kia Sorento Design

The looks of the 2016 Kia Sorento are a lesson in clean and dapper designing. No un-needed frills or curves which do not add any functionality to the car. The LED lights in the front lead the way for all the modern technologies that have been adapted in to this car. Not for no rieason is it one of the most popular models from the Kia stable, the 2016 Kia Sorento would be featuring an all-aluminium engine that its predecessor was famous for. The choice between the four cylinder and six cylinder versions is not thought to be much trouble since the bigger sibling does deliver mileage as well.

2016 Kia Sorento Interior

Space is a prime concern in a crossover SUV, and the Sorento seems to deliver on this front as well. Though the seats may not be as plush and spacious as the more luxurious counterparts, it does deliver enough comfort for long rides. The second row also has the same configuration, though if you do opt for the third row seats, you may sacrifice luggage space. The material of the seats may not be the most luxurious of lether, and the material of the fittings may feel very hard they do serve the purpose for which they are put in. In short the car is one complete package and a good buy for any customer.2016 Kia Sorento is going to have a redesigned inside with new engine and the customers will enjoy safety technology and new convenience found within the car together with better handling response, driving comfort with enhanced space. Sorento final look looks as a tieaser sketch of Kia which stretches a little longer and the body exhibits a subtle rear wings and dramatic body lines. Even if the inside of the vehicle features are not yet known, it is expected to have some styles from the crossovers.
