2015 Kia Sorento SUV LX 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

So, I felt I did my research on this vehicle, and for the most part I did. When I read everyone’s review, to include Edmond’s review, I felt good about my purchase, initially! My major complaint is the road noise. It is horrendous!! If your town/city roads have smooth asphalt/concrete, then you won’t mind/notice the road noise. However, the city I live in mainly has coarse (small pebble/shell) asphalt roads. I think it is important to note though the roads in my city are smooth, but are coarse. The road noise is terrible. The noise contrast is really noticeable when I drive over recently repaired (new asphalt) areas on the road.


Favorite Features

The vehicle has great performance, handling, and great ‘bells and whistles’.


Suggested Improvements

I highly encourage you to give this vehicle a thorough road test before you buy. And yes, if you’re thinking the tires might be the issue, I thought the same. So, I did my research on reputable tire websites and found the factory tires weren’t rated well. So, I replaced the factory tires with the top of the line tires. Unfortunately it wasn’t the tires. Bottom line, I’m in search of a new vehicle.

2015 Kia Sorento SUV SX 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is my 2nd Sorento (We had a 2012 also). I love this car! It was great when the grandkids visited . The 3rd seat is meant for them. We have the sx model with all the bells and whistles. The acceleration of the V6 is very good and the quality of the interior is nice.


Favorite Features

My favorite features are the way the bluetooth connects to my I-Phone automatically and the keyless starting.


Suggested Improvements

I would have liked to have seen real wood on the interior instead of plastic at the price I paid.

2015 Kia Sorento SUV EX 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is my third actually. I had my 2004 Sorento LX for 10.5 years and it was more reliable than ANY vehicle I have ever owned. So I traded for a 2015. I've only had it for 2 months and 850 miles but it's great! Average mileage running mostly city and in eco setting is 21. Still getting used to the back-up camera and some of the options I've never had before but those heated seats are wonderful!


Favorite Features

heated seats, back-up camera, UVO, keyless


Suggested Improvements

I wish that the seats folded completely flat like the 2004. When loaded with crates full of rescue pooches, it needs to ride flat.

Review

Our family is thrilled with our 2015 KIA Sorento Ex. It is an absolute pleasure to drive. The extra row of seats in back is a wonderful addition. Surprisingly roomy in 2nd row. The responsiveness of voice program and sound system along with other techno gadgets are great! Incredible Steering..will turn as sharp as a motorcycle!!! First week went on a trip, drove it a thousand miles through interstate and city traffic in Orlando and it got a hard to believe average of 26 mpg..Yes this is a keeper!!!!! To top it off the rear view camera makes handling the SUV easy as pie. WOW I could say more. ..this was thoughtfully made --a great deal! Thanks KIA! We are sooo happy!

2015 Kia Sorento SUV LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

the 2015 Sorento LX FWD is a attractive suv for woman. It's not really a mans suv unless it's a top of the line Limited model. It's very much so a plastic suv. For a $30,000 suv everything that's not a seat cushion shouldn't look and be hard plastics. The back up camera & sensors works great. The instrument cluster looks amazing with the red and white. The plastic wood look, looks great on the doors but not on the dashboard or on the center console. The gas needle and the range to empty doesn't really add up correctly the range to empty says 325 to E for a full tank but according to the internet I suppose to get 348 to E for a full tank.


Favorite Features

LED piping light is a plus for night time driving appeal, the exterior looks great, the rims look good on the LX model.


Suggested Improvements

Steering is very lite, suspension is too soft to the point where I feel every crack in the road, UVO system needs to be more user friendly, I have a iPhone 6+ and a Galaxy 5s and they do not connect to the UVO system well. I dislike the ECO button because it's hunting for gears which is burning more gas I notice that gas stays in my car longer when I turn the ECO off.

2015 Kia Sorento SUV Limited 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Purchased a 2015 for my wife and after 1400 miles we are still only getting 14 to 18 mpg. Kia says it has a break in period and that we should be getting 20 to 27 mpg after 3000 miles. We only purchased this car because of the mpg's we thought we were going to get, should have just kept our 07 Honda CRV. After a few years we will be getting rid of this vehicle and won't look at Kia again.


Favorite Features

Vista sunroof is awesome, very impressed with the interior.


Suggested Improvements

List the actual mpg's and when you should expect to get them.

2015 Kia Sorento SUV LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I'm a loyal Toyota customer, but I wanted to see what other car makers had to offer. So I test drove a number or SUV's from Toyota, Mazda, Ford, Subaru & Nissan. And the 2015 Sorento impressed me so much that I stopped looking. It's the perfect size, it rides great (better than most other SUV's), very comfortable, great standard feature & options. Very good quality all around, great warranty and I'm getting about 26mpg city & highway combined. When you compare the price and quality of the Sorento to other SUV's. Sorento wins.


Favorite Features

Love the rear camera, steering wheel controls, heated mirrors, extra storage compartments, great ride and good gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Make the Led lights brighter and always on.

Review

I really love my Sorento. Best car I have ever owned. Always wanted one and now I got it. I am planning on buying a pontoon boat only 16ft. The dry weight is 1620 without motor. The maximum towing capacity is 1650. I wonder if that will make a difference. Really hoping it doesn't because I love my Sorento


Favorite Features

blue tooth. Roomy


Suggested Improvements

More towing capacity
