We have a 2016 2.0 EX AWD Kia Sorento and we love it. 1500 mile road trip to NC & back to Fl. produced 28.4 mpg keeping Sorento at 70 mph. All around driving in the MT's & regular driving Country Roads we averaged around 25 mpg. Stop & go city driving down here in Florida your looking at 20 mpg or a pinch less, Hopefully when it's totally broke in we'll get a little better MPG? The only complaint is they could have put nicer looking wheels on the EX AWD Turbo. Quality SUV.
Best SUV I have ever owned.
Traded my wife's 2013 Optima SX Limited on the new 2016 SX. Did not get the Limited because my wife does not like the quilted interior and it's her car. Anyway, with options, the SX has everything the Limited has except for the noted seats. In any case the black leather with red stitching looks very sporty. This is a great mid-sized family sedan and I would suggest you at least give it a look. We are very happy with the new Optima.
Just bought this car and it is wonderful.
I am looking for a good deal and highly efficient car.
As compared to the Hyundai and the Mitsubishi Out lander, appearance is cleaner inside and out. I purchased the 5 seat without the two extra seats available. The back two seats are not of great use unless for small child or the dog. I wanted the cargo area. The other two have drop down seats but the do not law as flat, and you give up the underfloor storage. They is also a few extra inches inside., makes a difference getting in. Back-up camera moves with steering wheel.
We love the styling, comfort and quality. Very stylish and sporty, interior is roomy and comfortable. We have had it for a month... we are averaging 29.8 mpg with our normal around town driving. Getting ready for our first trip and looking forward to it. We are very satisfied and would recommend it to anyone.
