BRAWNIER look, edgier performance. The all-new 2016 Kia Sorento boasts of impeccable craftsmanship, making it this period’s car of choice for many adventure-seekers. It is designed with premium features both in aesthetics and engineering, and promises exceptional performance and riding comfort be it for off-road getaways or city cruising.
Road trips are made much more exciting with its advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) system that monitors driving conditions and anticipates possible traction requirements — enabling drivers to explore uncharted territories with complete confidence. Then thanks to its uni-body design and independent suspension, complemented with sound-insulating laminated glass, passengers enjoy a smooth and quiet ride even in harsh road conditions.
While its robust long hood exterior command a bolder and more dominant stance, its cabin is padded with soft-touch materials around its instrument panel, center console and door panels — making up for the latest model’s classy and contemporary persona. Inside are several seating configurations as well that makes it possible to carry passengers, cargo or both, as second and third row seats can be folded flat depending on one’s space requirement.
Advanced safety systems are in place to make sure the driver remains in complete control, and that trips are fun and worry-free. It is equipped with the hill-start assist control to help keep the vehicle from rolling backward when starting off on a steep hill. It also has passive safety systems for lessening injury such as an advanced airbag system that protects driver and passengers with dual front, front seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags.
Other advanced features include the Advance Smart Cruise Control, Blind-Spot Detection with Lane-Change Assist, UVO eServices5 Infotainment System, Park Assist Sensor, and HID headlights with Auto-Leveling for efficient driving convenience. Indulgent amenities installed are audio streaming using a compatible Bluetooth wireless technology-enabled device and Infinity 4 surround-sound audio system with 10 speakers, among others. (FSE)
