2014 KIA Sorento LX AWD Review: The Kia Sorento’s trademark signature grille is still there, reassuring drivers of the 2014 KIA Sorento LX AWD they’ll be getting a tough SUV/CUV that’s durable and tough. Aesthetically easy on the eyes, the LX AWD features bold side-accent lines and unibody architecture to preserve its clean, smooth lines from start to finish. With a body that’s low-slung, long and wide, Sorento fans are sure to be pleased with this sophisticated version of the family-friendly crossover.
Sights and Feels
While comfort and practicality have long been associated with SUV crossovers, KIA’s taken the 2014 Sorento LX AWD to a whole new level by blending bold styling with aggressive sculpting. The wheels, 17″ alloy head-turners, support a frame that features bar-style LED projection headlights and fog lamps at the front, and a stainless steel exhaust tip at the back. Transport all your gear easily with the power tailgate, making opening a simple, one-touch process. And for Sorento drivers living in chillier climates, the heated power side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals to keep you on top of everything during winter drives.
Ample room and easy spaciousness are the orders of the day on the inside, with cargo capacity at a high level that enables you to sit comfortably and still travel with all your gear. Dual-zone automatic temperature control adjusts at the drop of a hat to keep the driver and passengers feeling comfortable, despite what the meteorologist has in store (but you can check if the forecast was right with the power tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof.) You can also get rid of your driving gloves, as the LX AWD comes loaded with a heated steering wheel that makes any trek comfortable.
