At Bessada Kia, the 2017 Sorento Sells Itself

It’s a blessing when you have a car on the showroom floor that practically sells itself, and this year we have that in the 2017 Kia Sorento. In case you know nothing about the vehicle, this is Kia’s 2017 mid-size SUV. How does the vehicle sell itself? The first way is when customers research the vehicle online, because the Sorento has gotten rave reviews.  Independent consumer review websites are unanimous in recommending the Sorento in the mid-size SUV class for its overall value, so savvy consumers who do their research invariably want to take a look at the Sorento if they’re interested in purchasing a mid-size SUV.


The second way the 2017 Kia Sorento sells itself is when our customers drive it. We love the stable, quiet ride of this vehicle, not to mention the roominess and comfort of the interior. One of the experiences our sales team is known for at Bessada Kia is providing a relaxed, pressure-free buying experience. That’s easy for us to do with the Sorento. If our customers have not yet driven other vehicles in the Sorento’s class, we don’t try to stop them. We know they’ll be back.


Our repeat customers already know we are a family-oriented business whose primary mission is to provide a warm, values-oriented experience while maintaining a cutting-edge facility. We love to see entire families come shopping for the new family SUV and make use of our playroom, or our infant changing room. We’ll provide snacks and help entertain the little ones during the car buying process. There’s nothing we like more than the sound of your family visiting our family at Bessada Kia!


We would recommend coming out to the dealership and giving the car a test drive. With its roominess, safety features, drive quality, gas mileage and outstanding warranty, the 2017 Kia Sorento is an amazing mid-size SUV, but you have to see it to believe it.

2017 Kia Sedona – A Minivan Made for Luxurious Adventure


Kia takes another step into luxury with the 2017 Kia Sedona.  From comfort molded seating to dual sun roofs and 3 zone climate control, every aspect of the interior and exterior details seem to have been designed for luxury. Oversized cargo space makes loading a breeze and the built-in technologies give the impression of climbing into a luxury cockpit more than a minivan. As an example of luxury taken to the next level: the new power liftgate on the back automatically opens when it sensing the Sedona’s Smart Key approaching, no hands (or feet) required.





Besseda Kia offer a top safety pick with the 2017 Sedona. An NHTSA 5 star crash safety rating and IIHS top safety pick award are only part of the reasons why the 2017 Kia Sedona is a Kelly Blue Book “Top Family Car.” Technology comes into play in this category as well, with early warning sensors and exterior cameras. The Sedona not only includes the traditional backup camera, but also surround view cameras, giving the driver a bird’s eye, 360-degree view of the vehicle and everything around it.

In addition to increased visibility, the 2017 Sedona also features intuitive safety protection systems like automatic breaking which automatically engages the braking systems if it senses a potential crash; lane departure warnings, which alerts the driver if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane and safe cruise control, which helps maintain safe distance from other vehicles while cruise control is engaged.


The 2017 Sedona is built for adventure. Along with room for the whole family (and friends), comfort and design compatible with long road trips and available entertainment accessories, this model also features a 276 horsepower 6-cylinder engine, giving it plenty of power for wherever the road may lead, and plenty of towing capacity to bring the favorite toys along.
