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].

David Hearn: From K900 to Sorento

22. December 2015 11:12 by Administrator | 0 Comments

David Hearn caught Kia Canada’s attention in 2011 when he was named SCOREGolf’s Canadian Male Pro Golfer of the Year. With a return to the PGA Tour in 2011, where he’s had four solid seasons, he’s become known for a sharp short game and consistent play. Hearn was a perfect fit for the Kia brand because while being an elite-level athlete, he’s a devoted family man.     “Kia is a car that I trust personally, with the style and quality I need for both myself and my family. As much as I love golf, my family is what matters most. It is important for me to partner with a quality company like Kia”. As a proud ambassador, Hearn represents Kia on the PGA Tour, wearing the Kia logo on the chest of his golf shirt. He also represents Kia off the course – using the vehicles as his family’s daily driver. Over the past year, he’s been driving in style in the K900. He and his family were very impressed with Kia’s luxury car. With its incredibly quiet interior and powerful V8, they not only found it fun to drive, but more than deserving of its premium designation. As a family man, Hearn was looking for safety first and given the many features included, the K900 definitely stood out. He also required a practical vehicle with enough room for his family, luggage and of course, his clubs. Now, whenever he talks about Kia to friends on tour, he recommends the K900 to everyone, as he feels it stacks up with the best manufacturers in the world. Next year, Hearn will be driving the All-New 2016 Sorento. He and his family are looking forward to getting into the new model, having enjoyed another Sorento in the past. Getting back into an SUV means even more cargo space than before – which is most welcome when travelling to airports and tournaments with two kids and luggage for all. Another reason they’re looking forward to getting into the Sorento is its Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system. Not only will it provide them with the safety and comfort they need, but the capability to handle Canadian winters with ease. To hear what David Hearn had to say about his experience in Kia vehicles, check out the video below!
