The Kia Sorento Conquers the Streets in Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL

The 2016 Sorento is an award-winning vehicle because of features like its durable construction, but did you know base L and LX models also get fuel economy to beat the band, with 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway? When you combine that savings with Friendly Kia's VIP Price that starts at $20,025, you won't find a better deal on the market. And that's for an SUV that comes with 185 HP, passenger room for up to seven and 73 cubic feet of cargo room, all while giving you the handling that other SUVs can't match, with a 36.3-foot turning circle in base models.

Take that power and versatility and raise it to the next level, with the turbo-boosted EX and Limited trims of the 2016 Sorento, which come with a lightweight 2.0-liter engine that pumps out 240 HP and ups the towing abilities from 2,000 pounds in base L models to 3,500 pounds maximum. You may sacrifice a bit in fuel economy with these models to 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway, but you gain in power and you retain the durable construction and size of the 2016 Sorento.

The four V6 models, EX V6, LX V6, SX V6 and Limited V6, all come with a potent 3.3-liter V6 engine that puts out enough power to make any driving task, on-road or off, a cinch, with 290 HP. These models also give you the most towing power, with a peak of 5,000 pounds, and come loaded with features like UVO eServices for control over your playlist and access to points of interest and voice-command navigation.
