The Kia Sorento EX compact crossover vehicle receives a new powerplant for 2012, as well as new cloth upholstery and a new UVO voice-activated infotainment system. The new 2.4-liter 4-cylinder GDI powerplant, which is actually an upgraded version of the Sorento's entry-level powerplant equipped with a cutting-edge direct-injection fuel system, produces 191 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. It links to a 6-speed automatic transmission with a Sportmatic manual-shift feature and posts fuel economy numbers of 22/32 mpg. Standard safety features include electronic stability control, traction control, Hill Assist Control and 4-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and downhill brake control, as well as 6 airbags.
The Sorento EX now comes equipped with YES-Essentials cloth seat fabric, which has anti-bacterial and anti-soil properties. It also receives Kia's new UVO infotainment system, which provides hands-free connectivity with smartphones and other wireless devices, similar to Ford's SYNC system. In addition, the EX receives a number of features not found on lower-end trims, including a power-adjustable driver's seat, automatic climate control, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a backup camera and an outside temperature display, as well as such options as leather upholstery and navigation. Other standard features include remote keyless entry, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a trip computer, a 40/20/40-split second-row seat, power windows and door locks and an EcoMinder Indicator, which helps owners drive more efficiently. A 6-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system includes Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio and auxiliary and USB input jacks. Outside, standard features include automatic wraparound headlights, foglights, roof rails, a rear spoiler and heated exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn signals. Owners can also add new optional power folding mirrors. The Sorento EX rides on 18-inch wheels with a hyper finish.
