Kia Sorento Ship A Car Rates
The Sorento has been dubbed a "value SUV" for good reason. This four door, mid size sport utility vehicle was first brought on the market by Korea based Kia, in effort to fill the void left by the absence of the automaker's more compact Sportage that year. The vehicle is for anyone whose top priority is safety, along with the visibility and handling consistent with a truck, at a reasonable price. In addition to numerous features and standard equipment, this sport utility vehicle is back by a ten year, 100,000 mile power train warranty, and five years of complementary roadside assistance, an unmatched deal exclusive to the Kia name. The Kia Sorento is available in two distinct trims, the LX and the slightly pricier and more equipped EX version. Either way, the Sorrento is sure to leave buyers smiling. The Sorrento's interior boasts generous leg room and supportive seating for comfort, and plenty of amble storage space that makes packing for road trips easy. The standard package in both trims includes amenities like AM/FM stereo with compact disc and power windows and doors. A moon/sun roof and power seat controls are found in the EX; optional features in this trim include a cassette player and leather seating. An additional optional sports package for the EX became available in the 2004 model year, with exciting amenities such as keyless entry and alloy wheels. This year also brought about the debut of a five speed manual transmission in the EX, over the standard four speed automatic transmission. Safety is of no concern here, as child seat anchors, antilock brakes, curtain airbags, traction and stability control are also standard. For consumers shopping for a brand new vehicle, the Sorento received a total upgrade for 2007, which includes quite a few exterior improvements and an MP3 player, in addition to the compact disc player for added enjoyment during the ride. The Kia Sorento is definitely worth checking into for anyone seeking a safe, sporty SUV long on standard features with an economical price tag.
