Easy to enter/exit, very good visibility around vehicle, comfortable seats, plenty of head/leg room, tons of storage, all controls coveniently placed, plenty of power, very small amount of wind noise at interstate speeds, better than average SUV ride, and a very good looking SUV!
Pros: Love it all, but the Lights-Auto-On\Off is great!
Cons: Wish the steering wheel mounted controls were lit at night.
Advice: Buy it - buy it - buy it!!!Set out to buy a Toyota Highlander but it felt flimsy. Dream car was the Lexus EX300 but way out of price range. When we saw the Sorento, we could not believe so many features and so much quality could be had for a price $12-15,000 LESS than the Lexus!!! We bought the EX4x4 w\luxury package and now hate to get out of our car and go in the house!!! This is one car you've got to see and test drive before buying any other SUV!!!!!
Pros: Stereo controls on the steering wheel.
Cons: Road spray coming onto the rear glass from the tires.
Advice: Test drive it several times, and you will buy it!I'm a new Kia Sorento believer! I drove many SUV's, and was trying to decide between a Jeep Liberty and the Sorento. The Sorento won, hands down. With everything being Standard and the comfort and luxury of any of the more expensive SUV's, you can't go wrong with this car! Everyone that has sat in it comments on how comfortable and nice it is! I love mine! Yes, it does consume more gas than the norm, but it's worth it in the long run! Three days after I bought it, it snowed and it handled incredibly well in it. Test drive all others, but you will come back to the Sorento....
Pros: The endless list of standard features
Cons: The power driver's seat control botton placement
Advice: Buy immediatelyI was skeptical at 1st, I was trading a1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. But the SORENTO did not disappoint. The list of standard options is unbelieveable, you must check it out to believe it. The ride is very smooth, much better than the Grand Cherokee. The SORENTO is considerably wider than Grand Cherokee, making it mor stable. SORENTO has excellent excelleration. KIA has a WINNER.
Advice: Go for a test DriveIt only took less than a mile to convince me of this SUV. Great Value
