2018 Kia Sorento near Sun Prairie, WI

The 2018 Kia Sorento: An All-Around SUV for the All-Around Sun Prairie Driver

Sun Prairie, as its very name suggests, is a beautiful, all-around quintessential example of Midwestern suburban living. Situated just outside of Madison, Sun Prairie has its own distinct quality and is perhaps best well known for Jimmy the Groundhog and its creation of an American tradition. Jimmy is the name of the groundhog for which residents here and across the country look to when it comes to determining whether summer is around the corner or whether its more winter. It's a folk tradition and one that exemplifies the unique meshing of American cultures. Like we said, Sun Prairie is an outstanding, all-around town and one in which the 2018 Kia Sorento is a natural, all-around pick.

The 2018 Kia Sorento is a gorgeous midsize SUV that is affordable, spacious, and an excellent driver. The following expands a bit on all these aspects to show why the 2018 Kia Sorrento would make such a good daily driver for Sun Prairie SUV buyers:

A Quick Guide to the 2018 Kia Sorento for Sun Prairie Drivers

  • Good performance with good fuel economy. The 2018 Kia Sorrento comes standard with a 2.4-liter engine that offers a good amount of power with 185 horsepower. This propels the midsize SUV easily over hills whether it's just you in the driver's seat or you have the vehicle fully loaded. But while swift acceleration is important, what we love most about this engine pairing is its fuel economy. Equipped with the base 2.4-liter engine, the Sorrento enjoys a class-leading 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway!
  • Polished handling. The Kia Sorrento is a joy to drive thanks to its incredibly polished handling. While this starts with the best all-around steering and suspension systems, what really puts this model at the top of its class is its solid combination of an all-wheel-drive system with Torque Vectoring Cornering Control. This is an incredible driving combo that enhances traction and cornering stability so that drivers of the 2018 Kia Sorrento can truly feel confident and in control of their vehicle no matter how bad road and weather conditions get. This makes this vehicle a must for those drivers who live on the further edges of Sun Prairie or who often make trips out of town and into the countryside.
  • Pure spaciousness. The 2018 Kia Sorrento offers a ton of room for both occupants and cargo. Most trim levels of this midsize SUV will offer an available third-row seat that allows owners to expand their seating options from five to seven occupants -- all of whom will enjoy a good amount of room. Or, if you'd rather keep things simple, keep the five-seat configuration for maximum passenger room and comfort. Need to haul groceries or other large items? Then enjoy easy access to the 11.2 cubic feet of space behind the third-row (when equipped) or 38.8 cubic feet without the third-row in. The second-row features a 40/20/40 split configuration which makes it easy to put down what you don't need to expand cargo options and keep up what you do need.

Your Kia Maintenance Schedule

There's a lot of work that goes into owning a car, especially if you want to keep yours in good shape for many miles to come. The best way to make sure your Kia lasts a long time and runs smoothly the whole time you drive it is to schedule regular maintenance. In fact, a little bit of maintenance can save you tons of potential repair costs. One of the toughest parts about keeping up with maintenance on your Kia is knowing when it's time to take your car to a mechanic. The best thing you can do is talk with your local Kia dealer and figure out a schedule for when you can take your car in. If you're in the Madison, WI, area, the best place to schedule your Kia service is Russ Darrow Kia of Madison.

Finding Your Kia’s Maintenance Schedule

Determining how often you need to have your Kia serviced starts with figuring out the recommended intervals between various types of service. For example, your tires need to be changed a lot more often than transmission fluid but not nearly as often as you should change your oil. You can find more information about the recommended intervals between each type of service by reading your owner's manual or talking to a mechanic.

In addition to keeping up with the little maintenance tasks, you should also have a tune-up done at certain milestones to make sure you're keeping everything in good shape. A lot of mechanics will recommend you have a 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000-mile maintenance appointment at the very least. However, you should never wait until the next maintenance appointment if you think there's something wrong with your Kia.
