Cruising Panama City Beach In The Fully Loaded 2016 Kia Sorento SXL

I received this car from DriveShop for a 7 day test drive.  All opinions are my own.


What an amazing time we had travelling to Panama City Beach Florida from Atlanta in this Fully Loaded 2016 Kia Sorento SXL in Titanium Gray!

We were headed to The 1st Annual Love Tour ATL with our friends Justin and Sherita Thomas.  First things first we loaded up.  We had no problem packing everything we needed into the very spacious trunk which doubles as a third row of seats.


This vehicle provided us with a very comfortable ride for both front and back passengers.  It actually can seat 7 passengers comfortably.

The panoramic roof is an amazing feature (and one of my favorite features) because it opens all the way over the backseat.  Since the sun was shining the entire weekend that really came in handy.


I was able to get some fabulous photos from inside the vehicle!


Everywhere we went people stopped to ask us how it drives and other car related questions. Even at the gas stations!  This vehicle really makes a statement.
