A very impressive vehicle
By rcf8000 on


2014 Kia Sorento SXL 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Here is my report card for my SXL FWD after three weeks of ownership:

Power train refinement; nav/entertainment/climate
controls and displays; blindspot alert; sunroof; rear view camera; build quality

Very Good:
Steering (NORMAL setting); braking; ride; handling; styling; driver's seat comfort; noise levels

Front passenger seat comfort; second row seat comfort; front seat access; instrument panel displays; gas mileage: 20.7 mpg
(suburban driving, calculated; instrument panel display read 22.2 mpg)

Third row seat comfort, for persons 5 ft
10 in tall or smaller, on short trips; third row access

Unknown: reliability (no repairs have been needed so far)

Best Features

Center stack display resolution and brightness. Engine quietness.

Worst Features

Speedometer pointer should be brighter. Ditto the seat cooling/heating display. An eight-way adjustable front passenger seat would be nice, as would a power adjustable steering column, but that may be too much to expect at this price point.
