Kia Sorento 2016Interested in a new vehicle for this year or summer? Let me take you inside the 2016 Kia Sorento SXL AWD and the features you’ll get with it. A couple of years ago I took the 2014 Kia Sorento for a spin & it was a hit, so make sure you check out my thoughts from that year as well.

The 2016 Kia Sorento has all the bells and whistles and more. One of the features I want to throw out there for first is the Smart Tail Gate that couldn’t be explained any better than in this video, so take a moment to check it out. It’s pretty awesome technology.

I was able to zip in and out of just about anywhere with easy.Kia Sorento 2016 Up Close

The ride was great and the back end space was really nice and big, something I sometimes dislike about these types of vehicles. I got groceries a couple of times as we prepared for vacation & even took my kiddo’s for a bike ride, filling the trunk with bikes. Kia Sorento 2016 Back End
