2011 Kia Sorento Review

(3 Stars)  Good conversion from SUV to crossover

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
After taking a year off from the lineup for a complete redesign, the Kia Sorento is again part of the lineup. In its new incarnation, it shares the unibody constructed structure with the Hyundai Santa Fe. The new, sleeker, model replaces the previous body on frame design. It has grown almost 4 inches overall, despite the fact that it's wheelbase has been shortened by .3 inches. This newfound space has made a pleasant increase in interior volume.

The improvements in the new Sorento don't end there. It has gone on a diet and the reduced weight when compared to the earlier models help the 4 cylinder engine, which makes 175 horsepower, feel like a more viable option, although he Sorento offers a much more powerful option as well in the form of a 276 HP 3.5 liter V-6. Regardless of which engine is chosen, they will be mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.

While front wheel drive is standard, there is an option for all wheel drive. Trim levels to choose from on the Sorento are the LX, EX, and SX.
