2016 Kia Sorento

Drive Home the Award-Winning 2016 Sorento Today!


It’s hard to believe Kia could make the Sorento any better than the 2015 model, as it was awarded the Highest Ranked SUV in Initial Quality by J.D. Power, and then came the 2016 Kia Sorento. With elevated style and versatility, and a variety of technology and safety features, the 2016 Sorento breaks the mold for quality crossovers as it's ready for anything, whether it be a night on the town in Chicago, or a weekend getaway on Lake Michigan. And best of all, it’s ready to be taken for a test drive at Rock River Block.

The exterior of the all-new 2016 Kia Sorento exudes sophistication as it is redesigned to be more sleek and sculpted than ever before. Its wider stance and longer wheelbase provide more cabin space, while upgraded elements like the tiger-nose grille and swept-back Projector Beam headlights enhance visibility. The exterior is also equipped with handy features to make your life easier, including the available hands-free Smart Power Liftgate. There’s no need for any fancy kicking or waving your foot, because it opens when it senses your smart key nearby. Other features include side mirrors with integrated turn signals and a panoramic sunroof.

Once you open the door, you’ll see that the 2016 Sorento is equipped with a variety of seating configurations that adjust to your every need. The split-folding 40/20/40 second-row seats allow you to carry passengers, cargo, or a combination of both. The available third-row seats allow seating for a total of seven passengers, or to fold flat for an increased cargo loading area. And because these seats were designed for your active lifestyle using YES Essentials®2, they resist static and even help eliminate odor. Other great features the 2016 Kia Sorento offers are heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, dual-zone climate control, and a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel.


When it comes to technology, the 2016 Sorento has you covered with a variety of technologically advanced features designed to enhance every aspect of your driving experience. The available UVO eServices3 Infotainment System uses advanced voice recognition to let you manage your music and enjoy hands-free use of your phone. With this system, you can stream music, download apps like Pandora® and Yelp®, monitor your Sorento’s driving habits, access 911 Connect4 or Enhanced Roadside Assistance5, and check maintenance requirements with Vehicle Diagnostics6 on its large color touchscreen. You can control this technology using the steering-wheel mounted audio, Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone, and Cruise Control Buttons so your hands never leave the steering wheel.

Technology also transcends into the safety features to keep you aware of all your surroundings. Gear in reverse, and the available Rear Camera Display7 shows a live image of what’s behind your Sorento onto your touchscreen display. For added help in reverse, there’s the available Back-Up Warning System8, which uses sonars in the rear bumper to activate a warning when you get too close to objects. You can also change lanes with ease with the Blind-Spot Detection System9, which lights up on your side mirrors, and provides an audible signal to warn you of objects outside your field of vision. 

And for an all-encompassing view of your Kia Sorento, the available Surround View Monitor10 displays real-time images from four cameras onto your touchscreen for a virtual ‘bird’s eye’ view for maximum convenience when parallel parking on the streets of Chicago. With so many features working together, it’s no surprise why the 2016 Kia Sorento was named a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick, as well as a Five-Star Safety Rating by NHTSA.
