The all-new 2016 Kia Sorento CUV has received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) five-star overall safety rating in the U.S.

Built in the U.S. at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG), Sorento is KMA’s best-selling CUV, having sold more than 100,000 units each of the past five years, and offers a long list of standard safety features and an expertly engineered body structure.

The core of the all-new 2016 Sorento is its significantly enhanced platform.

The structure increases torsional rigidity by 14 per cent over the 2015 Sorento. The unit-body consists of 53 per cent Advanced High Strength Steel, a 115 per cent increase over the previous model.

Liberal application of industrial strength adhesives, the use of dual-seal lip joints as well as large diameter and laser welding techniques combine to make the 2016 model the most robust and durable Sorento ever.

Available with an advanced All Wheel Drive (AWD) system and up to 5,000 lb of towing capacity, the new Sorento rides on a 3.1-inch lengthened wheelbase, which allows more room for passengers and cargo.

The all-new Sorento offers a wide array of available driver-aid technology including Surround View Monitor, Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection2 and Lane Departure Warning.
