2013 Kia Sorento: Soccer Mom Approved!

kia sorento 2013
I recently had the opportunity to test drive the new 2013 Kia Sorento, and was wowed with all the luxury features and a really nice starting price of $23,150* MSRP for an SUV that seats seven (7) passengers! Don’t let the outside sleek and sporty exterior body fool you on a potential lack of interior space – this SUV is packed with lots of leg room, space for all of your “stuff”, and great organizational storage features that keep all your things in one place. My favorite part of the Sorento was the 3rd row that still left a good amount of space in the trunk. As a mommy of four children – have six (6) or more seats to haul the family is a necessity, and the hardest part I’ve found with SUV and Minivans that hold six (6) or more passengers is the high ticket price and many times the gas efficiency. This really help satisfies the best of both worlds (great price and gas efficient). I also appreciate Kia’s focus on safety, and because of all the preventative measures they’ve put in place for the 2013 Kia Sorento, it was recently named IIHS’ 2012 Top Safety Pick. The vehicle and it’s overall value is so good, that they were featured in NADAguides June Featured Vehicle of the Month! NADAguides June Featured Vehicle of the Month.

Here is my Video Review of the really cool interior features of the Kia Sorento and a list of my own favorite features:

  • A keyless system that allows you to press a button to start a super quiet engine (so quiet that I literally had to turn it back on and off just to make sure the car was on!).
  • The rear camera display
  • Microsoft Infotainment System plays all of your songs on your playlist on your phone or MP3 and eliminates the need to plug into a car outlet!
  • The interactive visual design on the dashboard that gives you an overview of how your overall vehicle is performing
  • The ability to “command” your SUV to play a specific song or programmed station with the touch of a button on your steering wheel.

The list goes on and on, but those were particularly my favorites! I loved the easy to clean leather, 3rd row seats, and all the organizational functions and compartments!

If you’re looking for an affordable and tastefully designed SUV that comes with a ton of great features that’s large enough to fit seven (7) passengers – the 2012 Kia Sorento is definitely the way to go! There are packages and options you can choose from that can work based on the needs of your own personal lifestyle, but you’ll find pretty quickly that the Sorento already offers some great specs!
