The 2016 Sorento: Capable quality

17. March 2016 16:21 by Administrator | 0 Comments

    Since its launch, the 2016 Sorento has attracted the attention of auto industry professionals and drivers alike. For us, it’s no surprise that the available features in this midsized SUV have appealed to such a broad range of fans. After all, it was made for life’s adventures – whatever yours may be. But all of this attention isn’t due to simply including features like an available advanced Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system or any of the advanced safety features, it’s due to the quality and performance of them.   For instance, it’s the little things, like how the available auto-levelling Xenon HID headlights flow with the sleek lines and sculpted contours of the Sorento that garnered it the iF Design (link to:http://ifworlddesignguide.com/search?q=sorento#/page/entry/151841-kia-sorento) and Red Dot Design Awards (link to: http://red-dot.de/pd/online-exhibition/work/?lang=en&code=27-01738-2015&y=2015&c=166&a=0). Or how the use of Ultra High-Strength Steel throughout its structure contributed to it becoming an IIHS Top Safety Pick (link to: http://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/vehicle/v/kia/sorento-4-door-suv/2016) and an NHTSA Five Star Safety Pick (link to: http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/5-Star+Safety+Ratings/2011-Newer+Vehicles/Vehicle-Detail?vehicleId=10023).         The Sorento doesn’t just look the part, it acts it. All the design, features, technology, safety, and performance you want in an SUV is there. What makes it such a standout performer is that you can get all of these premium features without the premium price. This puts the Sorento into a category of its own, where it’s been able to top some of the biggest, most sought after names in the industry in quality rankings – like it did in 2015 when JD Power named it the highest ranked midsized SUV in Initial Quality (link to: http://canada.jdpower.com/microsites/kia/home). Then just a few months ago, Automotive Journalist Association of Canada (AJAC) named the 2016 Sorento the Best New SUV/CUV (link to: http://www.ajac.ca/web/) in the $35,000 - $60,000 segment, which is quite a feat considering the competition it was up against.   If you’re in the market for a new SUV, then there’s no doubt you’re also looking for one with great reviews to go along with impressive accolades. When it comes to reviews, most look to Consumer Reports for their clear, honest and unbiased product testing. Now, based on their most recent testing, we’re asking you to do the same. Whether you’re a current owner or future buyer, you have to see how 2016 Sorento ranked based on its performance, reliability, consumer satisfaction and safety on the Consumer Reports site [LINK TO: http://www.consumerreports.org/cars/best-cars-top-picks-2016/]. You can also find out what they loved about the engine, interior and crash test results by reading their full report [LINK TO: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/kia-sorento.htm].     For more information about the 2016 Sorento and its full list of exciting available features that were made for your life’s adventures, visit Kia.ca/Sorento [LINK TO: www.kia.ca/sorento].

J.D. Power thinks the 2015 Kia Sedona is APEAL-ing. We agree!

22. July 2015 15:35 by Administrator | 0 Comments

We are thrilled to announce that the 2015 Kia Sedona has won the APEAL award in the J.D. Power Minivan segment. APEAL stands for: A Pretty Extraordinary Automotive League (just kidding) but it might as well! The study in fact looks at Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) of a particular vehicle.  Historically with our brand, the APEAL award has usually been associated with the Kia Soul which, before this year had won the award three consecutive years in a row in the Compact Multi-Purpose vehicle segment. However, this year it’s the Sedona’s turn in the spotlight. When designing the Sedona, Kia wanted to put families first. The Smart-Power Liftgate, dual panoramic sunroofs, and unparalleled safety features helped achieve this task. The Sedona reinvents what a minivan should be: not only safe and reliable but premium, luxurious, and built with cutting edge design. As the Kia brand continues to grow and improve, we are both overjoyed and humbled by the recognition our vehicles are getting. Along with the J.D Power IQS awards we received for the Kia Soul and the Kia Sorento, this has been one of the best years yet! We are movin’ on up- and we can’t wait to share the ride with all of you!
