I recently had the amazing opportunity to review and test drive the brand new, beautiful 2014 Kia Sorento EX AWD, thanks to the amazing people over at Drive STI! You guys, I can't say enough about how much I love this vehicle. It's fabulous, functional, and luxurious!

- Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
- Push-Button Start and Smart Key

- and so much more!
My Experience & Thoughts:
I honestly fell in love with this car. I would purchase it if I could! It is simply wonderful and just as luxury as you could want, while retaining SUV practicality and safety!
This Sorento I test drove is such a lovely color: Wave Blue, which was perfect for the road trip we took it on out to the beach here in California! More on that to come (I may or may not be starting a California road trip series with my mom.. stay tuned :)
I loved the heated and ventilated seats - perfect for the capricious autumn weather where I live! The sound system, blue tooth, and navigational system were top of the line and worked wonderfully. One of my favorite features is the trunk - there is SO much room, compartments, and it opens at the touch of a button on your Smart Key.
My #1 favorite feature, though, was the GORGEOUS sun roof. It is panoramic and is the entire length of the car!
The steering wheel is awesome - it has steering-wheel mounted audio, hands-free phone, and cruise control buttons so you can stay safer on the road while navigating.
The retail price of this vehicle is: $31,700.00
