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.
Just bought this car and it is wonderful.
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.
i'm 88 yrs old. the car travels 60 miles hiway driving once a month at 70mph to ckeep engine clearded out
Purchased KIA Sorento 12/01/2011. Unable to give a complete rating at this point. But, so far I am very comfortable and enjoy driving this car. The SX Sorento has all the 'bells and whistles' for what I think is a reasonable price, compared to many SUV's that have similar extra's! The Berlin City KIA was excellent in accommodating me to purchase this vehicle! For a car i wouldn't have considered a few years ago, it is a very reliable and comfortable car!
