2016 Kia Sorento #DriveKia #DriveShop

Last week Drive Shop dropped off a 2016 Kia Sorento for our family to review for a week.  Last year our SUV “died” and we ended up getting a sedan.  I’ve always loved the feel of driving an SUV and the Kia Sorento is a perfect mix of SUV and a sedan.  I loved the style and the color was Snow White Pearl which looked absolutely beautiful when the sunlight hit it!  To say the car was fully loaded would be an understatement.  I think the only things missing were a DVD player and a mini fridge.

The lane departure feature is amazing for those road trips or late night driving.  It gives the alert to let you know when you are starting to shift over into the other lane.  I tried it out by changing lanes without signaling and was just in awe at how the car knew I was leaving my lane.  And nothing more annoying than when you set the car on cruise control and have to keep adjusting it to keep up with the flow of traffic.  You can set it so that the speed will be consistent with 1-3 car lengths ahead of you.  That is just pure genius!  And the alert for your blind spot was pretty cool too. Always seems as though people like to just hang out in your blind spot area just when you’re wanting to switch lanes.  We’ve been in Florida for most of the summer so when I learned that the front driver and passenger seats were equipped with a cooling feature I almost jumped for joy.  Imagine sitting on leather seats after the car has been basking in glory of the Florida sunshine…not pretty!  But within a few moments those seats were so cool that it almost felt like I had put menthol on my back…LOL!  The front and middle also had heated seats, as well as a heated steering wheel, but clearly there was no need to test that out in the summer.  HAHA!
