Pet Safety Lady week long testing of the 2011 Kia Sorento.

Every automaker has more than once crossover nowadays, and they range in price from affordable to outlandishly expensive. The Kia Sorrento falls in the bargain basement category, with a diminutive starting price of only $21,195.

The Sorrento received a significant redesign for 2011, with very modern styling that would look good on a vehicle costing $10,000 more. The five passenger utility vehicle boasts two engines: a 2.4-liter four cylinder with 175 horsepower and a spirited 3.5-liter V6 with a significant 276 horsepower. With the four-cylinder under the hood, you can expect 20 miles per gallon in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The V6 is only marginally thirstier, with 20/26 numbers from the EPA.
