When it comes to delivering the best bang for your buck, Kia is unmatched. This is seen across the entire Kia lineup, but I was particularly impressed with my recent test drive of the Kia Sorento. The exterior looks typical of an economy mid-size SUV, so the striking element was its interior.
The seats on my X-Line test car were dressed with diamond quilted stitching, and paired with faux wood trim. The luxury feel was enhanced with two large digital displays offering an array of customizable screens for instrument readings, stereo options, and navigation.
While the Kia Sorento also drives above its weight class. The ride quality is comparatively comfortable for the economy mid-size SUV segment, and it steers very nicely for the $43,000 price tag.
It is a great contender for budget conscious families who want to elevate their game without draining their pocketbook.
