The first thing I liked about the 2014 Kia Sorento SX Limited was the narrow but sleek body style. Kia has definetly made the 2014 Kia Sorento SX Limited easy on the eyes and is sure to turn heads with a chrome wheel package. Second on my list of thumbs up about this Kia, is the cockpit like drivers seat. That is the best way for me to describe how the 2014 Kia Sorento SX Limited feels when you climb inside. The multi-positional  leather seats form to your sitting preference, and the instrument panel gives you an insight of all that needs to be read.Kia sorento

A couple features I liked the most:

  • FlexSteer – tunable electronic steering offers a series of settings including standard, sport or comfort.
  • The Infinity® Audio System – brings music to life with deep rich bass, a full mid-range and clear, crisp highs.
  • Rear Camera Display – will show a live image of what’s behind your vehicle.
  • Heated and Ventilated front seats
  • Tilt and Telescopic Steering Column

Both my 8 and 10 year old girls loved the 2014 Kia Sorento SX Limited, as far as comfort and features. They tell their story from the back two rows, and here a couple things they loved.

  •  Panoramic Sunroof – lets you enjoy fresh air and a feeling of spaciousness.
  • 3rd row passengers enjoy the comfort of Rear Air Conditioning.
  • Plenty of 115-Volt Power Inverters
  • 2nd row heated seats
  • Interior Accent Illumination

The only thing that they would change is, to make it easier to get out of the 3rd row seating area. Both of them had a hard time getting the seat far enough up to climb out of the 2014 Kia Sorento SX Limited.2014 Kia Sorento SX Limited

After having the 2014 Kia Sorento SX limited to test out for one week, we definitely did not want to give it back. For a dad, it has so many features with more than enough space for my family to ride safely and comfortably.
