Kia Sorento EX V6 – MoVernie 1st Drive

Picking up this sick ride at the Kia Motors Headquarter

Ever since I test drove a number of Kia vehicles during my Kia Gear Up Experience in Barcelona, Spain this past May, I have always wanted to test drive more Kia vehicles when I am back in Canada. And this wish list came true this past week when Kia Canada had graciously provided me with a brand new 2016 Kia Sorento EX V6 (mid-size SUV) for me to be on the MOVE. A super great way to test drive a Kia vehicle on July 1st as part of the Canada Day celebration!

Personally, I really like the looks of the 2016 Kia Sorento, which is totally brand new with a nice front view, side view and rear view. No matter what angle you look at this vehicle, it looks good. In this particular EX V6 trim level, it comes with a 3.3L V6 that pumps out a powerful 290 hp and 252 lbs-ft of torque. In addition, it comes with 7 seats (which isn’t always available in other competitors). The long panoramic sunroof impressed me the most as it allowed lots of sunlight into the cabin, lighten up the mood and creating a joyful atmosphere throughout the whole journey.

So far so good with the 2016 Kia Sorento. For now, I will provide you with my first drive impression of this Kia Sorento. At a later time, I will have a more in-depth detail of my test driving experience with it.

Check out some of the photos that I snapped both exterior and interior photos of this Kia Sorento.

Even after putting this big box of lawn mower to the trunk, you can see there were still more space to put more stuff in this 2016 Kia Sorento.
