Kia Sorento 2011 Review and Price
The 2011 Kia Sorento has undergone dramatic change from the previous year model. The new Sorento is quicker, lighter and more organized than previous ones. There is more usable space inside and we have, for the first time the option of seating 7 passenger, a feature which almost not present in its class. ( previous sorento could seat max 5) .
Sorento is a four door SUV along with a full-size hatch in the rear. The base version has 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and comes with six speed manual transmission which is manual. The 2.4 litter engine is introduced for the the first time.
The LX trim has 6-speed automatic transmission in base version. EX trim, the buyers can enjoy a lot in this version a fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and inside tricks like dual zone climate control.
The huge change to the Sorento is in the engine segment. The big thing is 2.4 liter 4 cylinder came standard. There is no problem to go quickly in traffic with this vehicle because of its 172 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. Latest gearbox will help the vehicle to go up to 28mpg highway.

Base Sorento is missing the all wheel drive feature as it is in only trim levels. The engine’s power is equally distributed to all four wheels.
Interiors of any vehicle are so important and about seating and space it should be noted. About previous generation Sorento, it is so bad about interior spacing that the back seating will look awkward if adult size people take that place. Hard, discomfort seats and very bad visibility at last the interior is bad place to spend some time.
