The 2014 Kia Sorento SX is a whopper of an SUV that any parent would be proud to cruise up in at the drop-off line. Its roomy interior is full of creature comforts like front row heated seats, nappa leather trim, second-row window sunshades, dual climate controls, a heated steering wheel and a four-way adjustable passenger seat. For larger families, there’s an available third row that can be split and folded and can accommodate up to 7 passengers.
There’s plenty of amenities for traveling families, like the kick-butt infinity audio system, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones, media outlets for plug in devices, and voice-command navigation with an 8′ touch screen featuring real-time highway conditions from SiriusXM Traffic. Its 3.3 liter engine may not be the most gas efficient, burning 18-21 mpg, but the tradeoff is, well, everything else.
Safety comes first with this vehicle, with a rear camera backup camera, blind spot detection and an advanced airbag system.
