2012 Kia Sorento Tops ALG's 36-Month Residual Value Index

The Sorento has been Kia's best-selling vehicle for 16 consecutive months, since it first hit dealerships about a year-and-a-half ago. Reinforcing its position as an industry all-star, the crossover has more recently made a dramatic 10-point gain in ALG's 36-Month Residual Value Index. It now boasts one of the leading residual value rankings among 2012 model-year compact CUVs.

Kia suggests the Sorento's dynamic combination of class-leading power (191 hp) and fuel economy (32 mpg/hwy) is the primary reason spurring the vehicle's impressive jump in the Index. The newly-available 2.4-liter engine, featuring Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), certainly can't hurt, either.

Speaking on the award-winning Sorento, Tom Loveless, Vice President Sales, Kia Motors America (KMA) said, "With gas prices above $4.00 per gallon in many parts of the country, fuel economy has become an even more important element in consumer's decision-making process when considering a new car, and the Kia Sorento's all-new GDI engine delivers increased horsepower, lower emissions and outstanding fuel efficiency by achieving up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Kia's value proposition has never been stronger, and with the Sorento's high residual value rating by ALG, buyers can benefit from higher resale values and excellent leasing options."1

More than master a striking blend of power and fuel economy, the stylish 2012 Kia Sorento offers drivers a suite of today's foremost technologies. All standard, these include: power-folding mirrors, memory seat/power passenger seat, ventilated driver's seat, heated and wood trimmed steering wheel,  Kia's new UVO infotainment system powered by Microsoft, Bluetooth, MP3 connectivity, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio capability with three months of free service, among many others.  Hard to believe it starts at only $21,250, isn't it?
