We recently bought a 2012 Kia Soul as a 2nd car (aka Hamster Car!). It's an awesome and truly fun ride, and we were so happy with our Kia experience. So when I found out about a new BlogHer campaign involving Kia, I wanted to be a part of it.
Another big contender when we were shopping for a new car was the 2012 Kia Sorento. My sister-in-law has one and loves it, and I know it's the perfect family car. It's sporty, but the interior has a lot of room for the family.
It also features all of the new advanced technology, such as the voice-activated UVO infotainment system and rear-camera display. (I looooove this feature! I have always worried about backing up into one of my kids, so this camera technology is great. Also, the UVO infotainment system is like nothing I've ever used before. I have loaded all of my iTunes songs from my iPod onto the jukebox feature of the system and now can listen to my songs whenever I'm in the car. You operate the system by voice commands, which means no searching for songs and being distracted while you're driving.)
The Sorento also has a push start, is Bluetooth ready, and comes with Sirius radio (for 3 months), which is hard to live without once you've have it!
What I REALLY like the most about the Kia Sorento is that the price for what you are getting is amazing: it starts at just over $23,000. For us, getting a good-quality vehicle with all of the bells and whistles and that starts at such a great price is the one of the key things we are looking at when vehicle shopping. I was seriously so impressed with all of the features at such a low cost. I'm not really used to that in this day and age and economy!
And oh my...the panoramic sunroof is amazing!(Did I mention that the Kia Sorento is also assembled in the USA?)
I don't want to sound like a car salesman, but when I have an experience with a company that is nothing but great, I think it's important to share with other families. As a super-duper busy mother, constantly driving my kids or myself to here or there, a great vehicle is on the top of my list of priorities. (And I love the Sorento's 32 mpg highway-fuel performance!) It's also full of storage spaces for all of our junk, and we have a lot to bring with us.
