Edmunds.com and other auto reviewers also praise Kia's best-selling model as a best pick

GM Josh Aaronson says, "The Kia Sorento is one of our best sellers by far. I'm not surprised it was voted a best pick for families since we have parents in here every day who love the Sorento's fuel economy, spacious interior, and safety features.

The 2011 Kia Sorento has just been named one of Parents Magazine's "Best Family Cars of 2011", adding to the Sorento's long list of professional and customer accolades. The list was developed with help from leading auto review website Edmunds.com.

Parents Magazine editors wrote, "This newly redesigned crossover does what many competitors do – for a lot less money. The wide rear seat will keep three kids comfy, and the cargo well can accommodate the goods from a huge Costco run."

The magazine also praised the car-like handling, available third row seating, and class-leading power of the Kia Sorento.

Vehicles were judged by Parents and Edmunds on fuel efficiency, safety, handling, and family-friendly features. The top three models were chosen in 5 categories: budget, eco-friendly, sedans, big cars, and crossovers. All winners come standard with front, side, and side-curtain airbags, as well as antilock brakes and electronic stability control.

The Kia Sorento was also named one of the "Top 10 Cars for 2011" by Kelley Blue Book and made the list of "Best Cars for Families" by Kiplinger's Personal Finance.

The glowing reviews reaffirm what customers already know. The Sorento is already a favorite with families. In fact, the Kia Sorento has been Kia's best-selling model for 17 consecutive months.

One local dealership, Yonkers Kia, is one of the biggest sellers in the tri-state area. General manager Josh Aaronson says, "The Kia Sorento is one of our best sellers by far. I'm not surprised it was voted a best pick for families since we have parents in here every day who love the Sorento's fuel economy, spacious interior, and safety features. Plus its stylish new design is a lot cooler than any minivan."

Undoubtedly its look is part of its appeal. Whereas other crossovers just look like revamped minivans or clunky SUVs, the new 2011 Kia Sorento has sporty exterior styling that any parent would love.
