Why You Should Buy a KIA Sorento


A Brief History of the KIA Sorento

The KIA Sorento was introduced in 2002 and is a family friendly, reliable SUV with a price tag of under $25,000 in our dealership. It blends both value and quality and it has secured its spot as one of the safest 25 cars with the Best Safety Features.  It is one of the most underrated SUVs on the market boasting updated styling both inside and outside the vehicle.  The first design had a LX trim as well as alloy wheels and attractive interior. Since then there have been upgrades to newer models like V6 engines with better safety enhancements and much more.

KIA Sorento Appearance Over Time

When we review this vehicle over time you will notice that the models have become more streamlined with more family friendly features, comfortable interiors and powertrain options.

One of the more notable features that added to the appearance was the new trim and UVO voice activated control interface, as well as some interior and exterior upgrades. Currently there are six options when picking a Sorento trim.  All Sorentos have six airbags, stability control, and a rearview camera.
