KIA Unveils a New Trim Level for the 2011 Sorento! The SX

KIA has made a huge impact over the past year with vehicles like the KIA SOUL, Forte and Forte Koup, and the 2011 Sorento. Well now the Sorento is even better.... the SX trim Sorento was unveiled at the Atlanta Auto Show. It has a slightly more aggresive design with revised front and rear fascia, 18 inch wheels, chrome exhaust tips, LED taillights and it rides an inch lower for a sportier stance.

Under the hood of the SX Sorento is a standard 276 HP V-6, and the suspension is enhanced with Dual Flow Dampers for a more responsive feel behind the wheel. The interior is filled with all the luxuries; leather seats (heated in front), voice-activated navigation with back-up camera, and an Infinity audio system.
