The Roomy Cabin of the Sorento
The reason Kia SUVs are such a popular choice for drivers in Ardmore and Springfield, PA, is their ability to fit the whole family, all your friends, or haul a large amount of cargo. The Kia Sorento in particular will be able to fit seven people comfortably with 154.2 cubic feet of passenger volume. Use all three rows to pick up friends for the next tailgate, or to safely transport the kids and their friends to soccer practice.
The seats are also designed with YES Essentials® Fabric Treatment to help protect the cloth from any spills or stains. Additional comfort is provided by available features like the 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats.
When it comes to loading up the Sorento with cargo, you can simply fold down the seats of the second and third rows and use up to 73 cubic feet of cargo volume for whatever you need to bring with you. If you get creative with the space, you’ll have room for surfboards, hiking gear, and even a few bags of luggage. The 40/20/40 split-folding second-row seats and 50/50 split-folding third-row seats make it easy to take advantage of the Sorento cargo space.
Performance Tailored to Your Driving
The Sorento is not only a smooth and easy-to-control Kia vehicle, but also an intelligent one as well. Its Smart Shift & Drive will be able to gauge the conditions of your driving and choose the driving mode to optimize the ride’s performance. ECO mode can be switched on while driving around city streets or cruising the interstate on longer road trips to give you an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG.*
The Kia Sorento also has an available V6 engine and an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system that gives you the capability to tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. It’s the just-right amount of towing capacity if you’re carrying a trailer, some ATVs, or perhaps that hiking equipment and gear for a weekend away with friends.
You’ll get there safely, too, thanks to the available Dynamax™ Fully Active AWD. This available feature uses electronic sensors to monitor the latest road conditions, distributing power to the wheels to enhance traction and control. When the winter weather hits the Delaware Valley and beyond, you want to be behind the wheel of a Kia vehicle that’s ready for anything. The Sorento is that machine.
Connecting to Your Smartphone
With both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® standard in the Sorento, you will be able to connect your device to the 7-inch touchscreen display. This will allow you to use various apps from your phone, send and receive messages, and make phone calls. There are also plenty of other features available in the Sorento to keep you and your passengers entertained.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about showing up to your destination with your phone at the dreaded zero battery. With the available wireless smartphone charger, it’s easy to charge up without any cords. When you arrive, you’ll be all set with a fully charged phone. That’s tech you can rely on.
Forward-Thinking Safety Features
Not every driver is perfect all the time. Kia Drive Wise is a suite of advanced driver-assistance technology designed to protect you and keep you alert and aware. In some cases, these helpful safety features can even help you avoid an accident.
