2016 Kia Sorento SX

Tidy and mature, with a versatile interior and up-market features, the 2016 Kia Sorento SX Review provides an impressive, affordable package. Performance that stands apart from the rest of the pack, along with lots of safety features, makes the Sorento SX a top choice in the mid-size crossover SUV category. The 2016 Kia Sorento SX is a single trim at the top of the Sorrento family.

Great Design, With Substance

A confident front fascia features a dark metallic grille set between automatic, auto-levelling High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon headlights that provide maximum illumination at night. The four-door 2016 Kia Sorento SX also features futuristic Quad-LED fog lights set below the headlight assemblies for a unique look. The headlight assemblies slant back towards flaring body-colour wheel arches. Chrome trim is used across the exterior, including door handles, deluxe oval exhausts, and roof rails that are perfect for tying down larger cargo. The Sorento sits tall, with a cabin wrapped in solar privacy glass, including a noise-reducing windshield and front glass to provide comfort and quiet. Heated, power-adjustable sideview mirrors help to keep your lines of visibility clear in snow and ice. In the rear, a Smart Power Liftgate opens automatically when it senses your smart key, so you don’t need to put down your luggage to load up. 19-inch tires wrap up the package.

Interior versatility is the key behind a great SUV, and the 2016 Kia Sorento SX comes through with plenty. Seating for five or seven passengers is available, with seating wrapped in premium leather with available Nappa leather with deluxe trim. First-row seats are heated and ventilated, while second-row seats are heated as standard. 1,000 millimeters or more of legroom provides for space to stretch in the first two rows, and comes with around 1,000 millimeters or headroom as well. If you don’t need as much room for passengers, the Sorento offers up to 2,082 litres of cargo capacity depending on how you configure the cabin. Audio and cruise controls are mounted on the heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel for ease of use. A premium Infinity by Harman audio system features satellite stereo, AUX and USB ports, and a USB charging port to utilize a variety of media. Set in the centre console, an 9-inch multimedia interface features the UVO infotainment system as well as a voice-activated navigation system. For drivers who need to stay connected, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity lets you stay in touch while keeping your focus on the road ahead.

Solid, Efficient Power

Choose from two engines to power the 2016 Kia Sorento SX, with efficiency meeting capability. When properly equipped, the Sorento SX can tow up to 2,268 kilograms, plenty for bringing along a small camper trailer, boat, or recreational vehicles.
