More and more people are discovering and enjoying the perks and advantages of owning a Kia. Martin Lock is one of these people and he was more than willing to share his experience with Kia Sorento.
As a Human Resource Director for a company and a family man, he has a lot to balance. Work-related errands. Family activities. And more. At one point in time, he was on the lookout for a vehicle that will allow him to effectively fulfill all of these responsibilities. Perhaps it was destiny that put the car brand with a K on his radar while he was touring with his family in Korea—the birthplace of Kia.
“My family and I went to Korea where we were fetched by a Kia Carnival. This made me realize that the brand Kia has come a long way in terms of performance and style. Hence, my interest in the brand and the cars that they offer was piqued.”
And from that point on, there was no going back for Martin.
“I went online to look for the best-rated 7-seater SUVs and watched countless reviews of possible options. After narrowing down the options based on style, functionality, and security, I decided to choose the Sorento.”
Martin seems to be very happy indeed with his Kia Sorento. It proved to be a great companion when it comes to working errands.
“Now, I get up every day and go to work driving comfortably with my mind at ease. It exceeded my initial impressions. I was surprised by how light the steering wheel feels. It helps me to feel more relaxed while driving.”
The Sorento enjoys a roster of features that makes driving a delightful experience. Under the hood is a 2.2L CRDi Diesel engine capable of an output of 441Nm of torque. Meanwhile, inside the cargo is an elegant layout complete with a 7-inch Touchscreen Audio with Bluetooth, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto, easy sliding seats with premium leather upholstery, and rear air ventilation and power supply.
All these are found in the monocoque chassis of the Sorento which makes driving smoother, better, and more comfortable overall.
It also became a source of joy for his family.
“This car has been a significant companion for our family especially in this pandemic. Since we cannot go out with the kids outdoors, our family bonding became long drives with the kids just to sightsee or buy food in drive-thrus. The comfort it has provided me and my family encourages me to procure another Kia vehicle.”
Aside from comfort and ease, he gets to do all of his tasks in flair. Because Kia is a brand that takes style very seriously. The elegant and sporty appearance of the Kia Sorento was even recognized in two of the most prestigious and global design competitions: the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Design Award.
The Red Dot Design Award is an annual competition organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen while, the iF Design Award is organized by the iF International Forum Design GmbH, one of the top independent design institutions in the world.
Out of the thousands of entries for both awards, the juries recognized the Kia Sorento for its outstanding product design, earning praises for its striking exterior and sophisticated interior.
Martin has a message for all those who are considering buying a car from Kia.
“I recognize value-based on merits. Always believe in your own reasons for buying a car.”
Choosing a new car can be exciting, but it can also be nerve-wracking. It’s a huge investment, after all. Doing in-depth research before heading down to the dealership builds your confidence in your future car since you’ll know whether or not it meets your standards.
