Kia Sorento Hybrid

First things first, this car gets great gas milage. At 40 miles to the gallon in real world driving, you’ll definitely save a buck at the pump. 

The car is also extremely safe; in addition to Kia’s standard automatic emergency break it comes equipped with rear cross-traffic collision avoidance technology and is available with blindspot detection, so it’s perfect for drivers who prefer a few added protections while they’re on the road. Also featuring adapted all wheel drive with torque vectoring, the car has great corner control so is perfect for maneuvering around tight spaces. 

The hip and edgy design is a stylish bonus, and the spacious interior makes it a great option for big families or lots of friends. As a three-row SUV with plenty of space you’ll have all the room you need for a long road-trip or cross-country sojourn. 

I also appreciated the 10-inch touch screen display and Bose audio sound system, which made for easy GPS monitoring and provided high-quality listening for favorite tunes and podcasts while on the road. 

Spacious, stylish, and safe, this is overall a great ride. Starting at $34k, it is also a good bang for your buck, especially considering the amount you can save on gas.
