The all-new 2011 Kia Sorento near Orlando boasts the carlike unibody construction that Americans crave, and it’s got most of the other bases covered.
The 2011 Kia Sorento is a crossover SUV offered in three trim levels: base, LX and EX. A third-row 50/50-split-folding seat with room for two is optional on the LX and four-cylinder EX, and standard on the EX V6.
The base model comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping multifunction steering wheel, a trip computer, Bluetooth connectivity and a CD/MP3 audio system with satellite radio and a USB audio jack.
Moving up to the LX nets a six-speed automatic transmission, body-color heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, a second-row armrest with cupholder, and the option of adding the Convenience package, which includes foglamps, roof rails, rear parking sensors, heated front seats, and a back-up camera with a rearview-mirror-mounted display.
The EX starts with the LX’s equipment and adds 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition/entry, dual-zone automatic climate control (with rear air-conditioning on V6 models) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Come visit Orlando Kia North for a test drive today!

The AWD system comes with a locking center differential to improve low-speed traction in icy or off-road situations. Fuel economy estimates range from 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway for front-drive four-cylinder Sorentos with the automatic to 19/25 for the all-wheel-drive EX V6.
The 2011 Kia Sorento comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability control, hill-start assist, hill descent control, front seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and front active head restraints.
The Sorento’s interior is class-competitive in both design and materials, with a look that is restrained but sophisticated. The front seats are comfortable on long trips and provide the commanding view of the road that crossover buyers love, and the inviting second-row seat accommodates three passengers easily. The optional third-row seat (standard on EX V6) features 50/50-split-folding seatbacks and enough room for adults.
