2016 Kia Sorento SX Review: Perfect ‘Girlfriends Mobile’!


Kia has really been doing some amazing designs with their cars/trucks in the past 3 years. I was so excited to drive the Kia Sorento when I was in San Francisco, because if you remember I was car shopping, and I excited to see what the 2016 Kia Sorento SX would have to offer. I was not disappointed!

This car was the perfect car to navigate through San Francisco, Oakland and Napa Valley. It was the perfect size for 3 girlfriends and also made my trip to Oakland wonderful b\c I was able to pick up some friends and head over to a party. There are a number of reasons to love the 2016 Kia Sorento, but here are my top 3 reasons!

3 Reasons to Choose the 2016 Kia Sorento!

Gas Mileage

The first day I landed at SFO and drove directly to Napa Valley wineries. If you are familiar with the area then you will know it takes about 1 1/2 hours to get from SFO to Napa and all of the wineries are spaced out. My SFO trip included driving from San Fran to Napa and back, all around San Fran, from San Fran to Oakland and back, AND to the airport. Drive Shop provided me with the car on a full tank of gas and I did not have to fill up ONCE. Can the church say Amen! If I was in my husbands’ car I would have made it 1/2 way to Napa before having to fill up the tank!

2 for 1 – Design: Interior and Exterior

I’m going to go ahead and admin that i wasn’t the biggest fan of the older body style of the Kia Sorento. Looked like a truck for my older mom or aunt! LOL When they pulled the car around I was like OMG this is  amazing!


The exterior of the Kia Sorento looks very modern and sleek. I don’t know if it just me, but Chrome hardware just make everything look better. I loved it in the white as well, although I’ve seen it in black and burgundy and those colors look great also.

The interior was spacious and modern as well. This truck comfortably fit 5 adults headed to a party! LOL The leather was timed and perfectly and the dashboard looked so tech savvy.





My girlfriends in Oakland were so impressed with the car when they go in they kept asking questions. I told them we had to record it, as if I was a reality TV producer because they were so pleasantly surprised that it was indeed a Kia.


The base model Kia Sorento L started at $24,900!!! What!!! The model I drove, SX, was “suped” out and was still reasonably priced started at $38,000. I was so surprised when I looked over the description and saw everything you got for only $38K. Jesus wanted me to have it! LOL

Check out all of the standard features for each of the models Kia offers. You will not be disappointed. See, me and the girls were all smiles! LOL


If you are a family person, looking for a ride that you and your girlsfriends and/or homeboys can enjoy then look no further.

Have you driven a Kia recently? What are your thoughts?
