Kia has given the 2016 Sorento a healthy new start. The new Korean SUV is sleeker, faster and in great shape. The exterior of our Auto Fit long-termer is adorned with tattoos repping the Fit Fathers brand and website, which was perfect for the attention the Sorento’s new chiseled body would receive from spectators.
When I got my hands around the leather-wrapped steering wheel, it was to workout promotionally for the 2nd Annual Fit Fathers Day Celebration in Downtown Silver Spring, MD. It was on point for getting through the city with three kids while making stops at radio and TV stations for interviews. The youngsters were able to plug their electronics into the 110-Volt outlet and USB, so I heard no complaints for the various marketing errands.
During my time with the Sorento, summer had officially arrived making the air-conditioned seats the coolest of all features. The comfortable ride was great on the pothole ladened Washington, DC streets. Parking assist and a 360-degree camera allowed me to ease in and out of parallel parking spaces by simply viewing UVO’s 8” screen. Rear storage was sizeable so I loaded up three large tables, 10 folding chairs and 50 gift bags for Fit Fathers Day. Then, the Sorento put in a massive cardio workout showing great agility and power for a 4-cylinder mid-sized SUV since I was running late as usual. After activating Sport mode I was able to zip up the highway with impeccable timing for the festivities.
Fit Fathers Day was a win and the Kia Sorento helped the life-enhancing movement meet all of its goals. I wish I had more time to exercise with all of the Sorento’s worthy features, but the vehicle will stay in our fleet a while longer and I must share the sweat. I hope to set up another training session with the Sorento pretty soon!
