This Korean-manufactured Sport Utility Vehicle has been garnering much deserved high praises, the Kia Sorento his equipped with a clean design, top-flight build quality and many standard safety features. One great thing about it is that it is very well equipped for its price class. The Kia Sorento comes in the LX and EX trims which are obtainable in 2wd or 4wd variations. With the Sorento's rising popularity the Kia/Hyundai tandem from Korea may soon became a major player not only in American auto industry but as well as the world auto industry.
The Sorento is sold in North America with a 3.5L, 24 valve, DOHC V-6 engine that develops 192 hp and 217 lb-ft of torque. A smooth 5-speed manual is standard. A 4-speed auto is optional. Regular power steering on the LX feels over boosted. Speed sensitive power steering is available on the EX.
Sliding into the driver's seat of the Kia Sorento proves to be a very pleasant experience. The driver's seat is especially comfortable. It is ideally positioned to give the driver a good view of the surroundings. Visibility in all directions is excellent. The rear seats are positioned high, theatre style. People seated back there can see out almost as well as the driver. The seats are firm yet comfortable. Actually, they feel like they could have come out of one of the more popular European models. You don't sink into them, but they are very supportive.
The Kia Sorento utilizes the fully boxed ladder type frame from a Kia light truck model not available in North America; Kia is one of the largest makers of light trucks in the Far East. With 9 cross members in the frame, it has a sturdy feel. The ride tends towards the truck-like yet still not especially harsh over busted city streets.
