The 2011 Kia Sorento compact utility vehicle (CUV) returned to the Kia line-up fully redesigned right down to the platform. The KIA Sorento also offers an impressive amount of safety features in addition to comfort and convenience, and was appointed a 2010 “Top Safety Pick” award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shortly after its debut.

Completely redesigned for the 2011 model year, the KIA Sorento employs a unibody design with the ability to comfortably fit up to seven passengers, offering more space and ride comfort than the previous-generation model. Prominently displaying the signature tabbed grille and wraparound headlamps exhibited on all new Kia models, Sorento offers an aggressive stance and sleek profile.
