2014 Kia Sorento EX Road Test and Drive Review
To say the Sorento's transformation from rugged body-on-frame SUV to
car-based softroader has been a sales success is putting it mildly. In the
first 27 months of production Kia shifted more Sorentos than they did the 8
years prior. Sales numbers like that catapulted the Korean krossover
(couldn't help it) from CX-9/Xtera/Murano competition to 7th place in the
midsized battlefield. Three model years later, Kia is spicing things up
with a refresh. I know what you're thinking: why bother looking at a
refresh? Because 2014 brings enough changes to call the 2014 Sorento a
After three years, most car companies slap on a new nose, tweak some paint
and trim options and call it good for another three years. At first glance
it seems that Kia has done the usual, but the similarity is skin deep. The
front and rear get tweaks of course, but its the chassis that's been
substantially changed with new floor stamping to improve interior room, new
suspension subframes, different welding techniques, suspension geometry
changes, additional chassis bracing in addition to a refreshed interior and
exterior. In all, only 20% of the parts from last year remain. If you doubt
the magnitude of the change, check out the curb weight which is down 250lbs
vs the 2013 model, that's no small feat.
As before, the Sorento offers your choice of 5 or 7 passenger seating, yet
the Sorento still isn't a large SUV at 184-inches long. That's 15 inches
shorter than a Durango, 7 inches shorter than a Pilot and even 6 inches
shorter than the other 5/7 passenger "tweener" crossover, the Dodge
Journey. The RAV4, CR-V and Sportage are a half step smaller putting the
Kia and its Hyundai sister-ship in their own small category. (Remember, the
RAV4 ditched its 7-seat option this year.)
Rounding out the refresh is a revised engine lineup. The 175HP 2.4L base
engine is gone with the formerly optional 191HP, 181lb-ft 2.4L
direct-injection four taking its place. The 16HP and 12lb-ft bump are
minor, but a better torque curve made possible by the DI sauce combined
with a 250lb weight loss make the difference noticeable. On the downside,
fuel economy suffers from the upgrade dropping the AWD model from 21/27/23
(City/Highway/Combined) to 19/24/21. Some of the drop is likely due to
changes in the way the transmission shifts, but also perhaps to Kia
re-stating their MPG numbers to be more realistic.
Optional on the Sorento LX and standard on EX, SX and Limited is
Hyundai/Kia's newest 3.3L direct-injection V6 making its way across the
lineup. Cranking out 290 ponies and 252 twists vs 273/247 for the old 3.5
mill, the difference behind the wheel is largely in the way power is
delivered. Our tester scooted from 0-60 in 7.23 seconds, about 2/10ths faster than last year's 3.5L model.
If you go by the EPA scores, the new engine is simply an even trade with
the same 18/24/20 MPG score as before. However, unlike the 2013 model, our
Sorento averaged a better than expected 22.1MPG in mixed driving as
compared to 19.5 in the old model on the same route. Adding the V6
increases towing capacity from 1,500lbs to 3,500lbs with or without AWD.
The Sorento is a textbook modern Kia. The exterior styling is unlikely to
set your heart on fire, but it won't offend anyone either. The interior
apes the style and features of the next price class above, but casts it in
durable, hard plastic. That makes the Sorento sound like a very average
vehicle, but the key to Kia's success is value. When you adjust for the
standard features on the base LX model, the Sorento is a $1,500 better
value than the Dodge Journey, often cited as the cheapest and most un-loved
of the 7-seat set. Compare the Sorento to a comparable Ford Edge or Toyota
Highlander and the Kia is $4,000-5,000 less. See why the hard dash plastics
that other reviewers complain about don't bother me? Because value speaks
to me, and judging by the sales it speaks to a large number of shoppers.
Toss in that long warranty and the only thing that surprises me is that the
Sorento is only "7th" in the mid-size SUV class.

2012 Kia Soul + Review

2012 Kia Soul Walkaround || Newcars.com
Check out our walkaround of the refreshed 2012 Kia Soul!
For 2012, the Soul gets an updated exterior including a new grille and
taillights, as well as a new interior design. It also gets a pair of new
engines under the hood that offer more power and better fuel economy, so
you get the best of both worlds.
We are big fans of the Soul, which continues to be one of the best bargains
on the road today. It comes with plenty of cargo space (19.3 cubic feet), a
larger interior than its size would suggest, and plenty of features.
Let us know what you think about the 2012 Soul in the comments.
Special thanks to Kia Sherman Oaks!

Kia Soul hatchback review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/kia/soul/hatchback/review
As a distinctive alternative to the likes of the Ford Fiesta, the Kia Soul
offers lots of interior space and the beefed up looks of a 4x4, in a
compact, easy to drive package. Aimed at younger drivers, there's an
ever-changing raft of special editions, each 'themed' in a certain way with
particular colours and trim options. Previous examples have included a
flagship, luxury spec car, and a matt black model finished in bright red
stickers. There are two 1.6-litre engines to choose from. One diesel, and
