Kia Sorento details:
No longer simply just a good value, the 2012 Kia Sorento is now an impressive pick for a small or midsize crossover SUV. Kia Sorento SUV offers the following pros: Plentiful traditional features; decent-size third-row bench, sporty handling; auxillary economical four-cylinder; auxillary punchy V6; long warranty. Kia Sorento SUV drawbacks are: Suspension tuning is a bit too firm; five-passenger model lacks a sliding second-row bench.
The 2012 Kia Sorento is a crossover SUV provided in four trim levels: base, LX, EX and the sporty SX. A third-row 50/50-split-folding bench with space for two is auxillary on the LX and four-cylinder EX, and traditional on the EX V6 and SX.
The base model comes traditional with a six-speed manual transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels, full performance accessories, air-conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping multifunction helm, a trip computer, Bluetooth connectivity and a CD audio system with radio, an Ipod adapter and an optional stereo slot.
Moving up to the LX nets a six-speed automatic transmission, body-colored heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals and a second-row armrest. Auxillary for the LX is the Comfort suite, which contains the more comprehensive four-cylinder motor for front-wheel-drive models, foglamps, roof rails, back parking sensors, heated front seatings and a back-up camera with a rearview-mirror-mounted screen. The Comfort suite for LX V6 models contains the third-row bench.
The EX starts with the Lx's equipment and adds 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition/entry, back parking sensors, dual-zone automatic conditioning (with back air-conditioning on V6 models), a performance driver bench (with performance lumber support), a leather-wrapped helm and shift knob and Kia's Uvo voice-activated controls interface (it's alike to Ford's Sync).
For the EX, opting for the Luxury Plus suite gets you power-folding outside mirrors, leather seats, heated front seatings, a performance front passenger bench, a hard-drive-based navigator, a rearview camera and a 10-speaker Infinity surround-sound stereo system with digital audio cargo. For the EX V6, this equipment is pretty much split up between the Luxury and Limited packages. A panoramic sunroof and a ventilated driver bench also come with these auxillary packages.
The SX is alike to the EX V6 fitted with the Luxury and Limited packages. It comes with more aggressive look look-and-feel details, a sport-tuned suspension and original metallic dashboard trim. The panoramic sunroof is auxillary. .
