We haven't even gotten to the features you need, whether you have passengers or whether you need power. The 2016 Kia Sorento is a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick, so its design is very impact-resistant and very family-friendly. Add in the Sorento's safety features like side-impact door beams and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and you've got something special. On the power side, the 2016 Sorento can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which means you can haul a truck around if you need to.
With the Nissan midsize SUVs, you have to make a tough decision – one has the safety of the Sorento but a lot less power; the other does not have the tough design of the Sorento but it can tow the same. Either way, you lose out on having both like you do with Kia's best-selling SUV. The 2016 Murano was also a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick but can only tow 1,500 pounds – good luck helping get a friend's ride out of ditch. The 2016 Pathfinder, on the other hand, can tow 5,000 pounds like the Sorento but did not do as well with extensive impact testing as the Sorento – the Pathfinder was not an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
We'd love to give you more reasons why in the midsize SUV class, there's the 2016 Kia Sorento and there's everyone else, like its industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain and 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty which will keep you serene as you conquer life's highway, but we think the Sorento's quality speaks for itself. We have the Kia Sorento on the lot at Friendly Kia, so come visit us and test drive one today. We're located at 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL, about 20 miles from Clearwater, less than 40 miles from Tampa, and less than 25 miles from Spring Hill.
