Recently, I had the opportunity to experience the ride and features of the all new 2015 Kia Sorento SX Limited AWD. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect so when the shiny Snow White Pearl car showed up in my driveway, I was anxious to check it out and explore all it had to offer. Almost 2 weeks later, I have to say that the Kia Sorento SX LTD AWD is one sweet ride with awesome family friendly features.
This Girl’s hooked!
We have a large family and a big dog, and with a large family and dog comes a lot of groceries and extra baggage, so I was very curious to find out if this midsize SUV could handle my large family and necessities. I have to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised.
The 2015 Kia Sorento SX LTD AWD has so many family friendly features and of course safety is at the very top of the list with dual front advanced airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, and side curtain airbags in the first and second row. I feel extremely safe that in the event of an accident, my family would be protected by the airbags in the Kia Sorento SX LTD.
The safety features list goes on with anti-lock breaking system, a traction control system, rear camera display, electronic stability control, hill-start assist control and tire pressure monitoring. One of the safety features I love is the blind spot detection system. As you are driving, when a car approaches in your blind spot, a light appears on your side view mirror to signal the driver that a car is there. Great safety feature. And what’s really nice to see is that the government gave the car a 5-star rating for overall vehicle safety based on the combined rating of frontal, side and rollover testing. That’s pretty impressive for this mom.
The next important feature I’d like to point out is the decent fuel economy. With the rising cost of gasoline, this is on every consumers mind. With the Kia Sorento SX LTD, a family can save $600 in fuel costs over five years compared to the average new vehicle. This car gets 20 miles per gallon with 18 in the city and 24 on the highway. I like the sound of that.
Some of the interior features for this car include UVO eServices, dual-zone automatic climate control, infinity surround sound audio system, navigation system, SIRIUSXM satellite radio with a free 3 month subscription, bluetooth wireless technology, premium nappa leather trim seating first and second rows, push button start with smart key and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, just to name a few.
The 2015 Kia Sorento SX LTD AWD comes with a 10 year, 100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty which is comforting for our family and a 5 year, 60,000 mile roadside assistance package for added piece of mind.
Overall, this is one well designed, safety conscious, family friendly vehicle. If you are looking for a fuel economy mid-sized SUV, the Kia Sorento SX LTD AWD is a fabulous choice for young growing families.
