2016 Kia Sorento Engines and Fuel Economy
What compelled the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada to award the Kia Sorento the best new SUV ($35,000-$60,000) for 2015? A big part of this favourable review is due in no small part to the 2016 Kia Sorento’s two excellent powertrains:
- 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder: 191 horsepower, 181 lb-ft of torque, and 11.8 or 8.7 L/100km fuel efficiency in the city or on the highway
- 3.3 GDI V6: 290 horsepower, 252 lb-ft of torque, and 12.7 or 9.0 L/100km fuel economy in the city or on the highway
With either of these engines you have the ability to tow a boat to the lake like a full-size V8 truck-based SUV, but with far more car-like driving comfort and gas mileage. And the standard transmission is the smooth and quick shifting 6-speed Sportmatic with manual shift control.
2016 Kia Sorento Safety Benefits
In addition to available intelligent AWD, the 2016 Kia Sorento packs a tremendous amount of safety technology into this mid-size SUV that only a few short years ago would only be found on the world’s most expensive luxury cars. These potential life-saving features include anti-whiplash active headrests, blind spot monitoring system that’s built into the side view mirrors, and an available rear bumper-mounted sonar sensors that alerts you to any possible obstacles approaching from behind. And when the streets start to get icy come November in Medicine Hat, the 2016 Kia Sorento’s standard Vehicle Stability Management uses selective brake and engine intervention to help keep forward control during emergency maneuvers.
