Alist Baby Loves: Kia Sorento EX



What does every proper girls weekend need? The proper ride! The very kind people at Kia were nice enough to lend us a fully loaded Kia Sorento SX for the weekend. This luxurious crossover had everything, leather interior, GPS navigation and seating for 7! Black with grey leather interior, it was gorgeous! I normally drive a sedan, and I had never really appreciated a high seating position. This gave me a great view of the road, and an added sense of confidence and security. Another thing that really surprised me was how flexible the seating was in the Sorrento. I picked up my 6’3” tall nephew and his equally tall friends from high school and they all fit in very comfortably, even in the back row! Later on, when I needed a bit more cargo space for all the shopping that took place, I could just flip this seat back and get plenty of storage room.  Driving around, I noticed we were getting up to 32 MPG on the freeway. Better than my four door!

My friend and I also did a lot of exploring in Orange County. We drove up and down the Pacific Coast Highway checking out thebeaches and stopping at the scenic overlooks. There’s really a lot to do between Newport Beach and San Clemente. There’s a great art scene in Laguna Beach, a fantastic marina in Dana Point, San Clemente has a surfer town vibe. Newport Beach is just glam with great shopping and dining. Every turn we took in the Sorento gave us another dazzling view of the coast. This really is America’s Riviera.
