Recently my mom and I took a road trip to Chicago together. We try to take a trip together every couple of years and this time we thought a trip to a big city while it prepares for the holidays would be fun. It’s about 5 hours from Cleveland to Chicago and we were excited to test drive for a week, the Kia Sorento.
I was also excited to see that the floor of the trunk folds up into a third row. This is perfect for when we are visiting Kora and Logan’s cousins and we need just a bit more room. Being that the seats sit right on the floor there is no dangling leg room, but it’s perfect for children. I know Kora & Logan wouldn’t mind at all if they got to sit in the “way back.” It’s easy to get the third row into position too, just tilt the middle row seats forward a bit and then pull on the strap on the back of the third row seats and that’s it. You’re third row is ready to go.
I took a short video to show off a few of our other favorite features including Keyless Entry & Push Button Start, Power Folding Side Mirrors, Sirius Radio, Dual Climate Control, Easy to Read Navigational Map, Bluetooth, and more.
We enjoyed the spaciousness of the Sorento. As you can see there is plenty of room in the second row and a good distance behind it to the 3rd row. This is nice and gives everyone space of their own eliminating the dreaded, “She’s touching me!” often heard on road trips.
I’ll forever miss the Keyless Entry and Push Button Start. It was a wonderful few days not having to dig for keys in the bottom of our purses or juggling shopping bags while trying to find the right button on the keyfob to hit. Starting the Sorento with the push of a button was a breeze too and so convenient. Going back to our old vehicles and having to put a key into the ignition feels so archaic now!
We enjoyed the Kia Sorento and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new vehicle. It’s roomy without being too big, it offers lots of storage space, it drives smoothly, there are vents to please everyone, and the optional 3rd row makes it the perfect family crossover.
