The 2016 Kia Sorento is here and it has been completely redesigned for this year and there are some amazing new features! The exterior got a bit more aggressive looking than previous models, I loved this silver color (check out the interior below – its a bit unexpected and fun). The center console has tons of features. The touch screen was large and offered lots of options.
My absolute favorite feature of this car were the cameras. The rear view cameras went a step further by including side and front cameras as well. This is great for parking lots and the cameras actually switch to the front when you go from reverse to drive. It took Brad and I a couple days, but we discovered that these cameras were mounted to the bottom of the side mirrors.
The dashboard contained lots of information that could be scrolled through. Some of this information included gas driving range, tire pressure, navigation and radio information (just to name a few). The heated steering wheel offered other features such as radio control, swapping through the various screens on the dashboard and adaptive cruise control.
I was excited about the red leather seats. They were a fun touch to the inside of the Kia Sorento. The front seats were heated and cooled, plus the drivers seat would move back when the vehicle was turned off to make it easier to get in and out of the car.
Overall the 2016 Kia Sorento was a great vehicle to drive. Check out Kia’s Website to learn more about all of the features and trim levels.
I was provided with the 2016 Kia Sorento to try out for a week. All opinions are my own.
