Had a 2012 Sorento with the 4 cylinder. Pretty peppy and pretty good gas mileage. Noticed however that when climbing hills it didn't upshift well. I attributed this to an outmatched engine for the weight of the vehicle. Just got the 2014 Sorento SX with the V6 GDI. It has tons of power and is super quiet. 400 pounds lighter and bigger engine is the winning combo. Silky smooth and great looking!
Really appreciate the adjustable steering control. Nice feature to enable a stiffer Sport setting on the Interstate and switch to Normal in tighter confines of parking lots in the city.
Another nice feature is the speed in which the sun roof opens. With the panoramic roof, you dont have to wait excessively to open it.
Greatly appreciate the bigger screen for the back up camera rather than the stock one in the rearview mirror.
Kia greatly improved the connect speed of the bluetooth since my 2012 model. Flawless.
Interior height is great as I need at 6' 5".
Under floor storage is a bonus and increases security of stored packages.
