That large (milder) “Tiger Nose” front end gets an attractive set of quad fog lamps

KIA’s top-of-the-line SUV seats five and another 2, drives on all four legs and delivers on value. The Korean brand has come a long way, and like its sister company, are both known for loading their cars with more goodies than their Japanese counterparts…

Bigger, more goodies where they count and at a more attractive price, has been a failsafe formula, and their range-topping Sorento GT is no exception for this rule.

That large (milder) “Tiger Nose” front end gets an attractive set of quad fog lamps, delivering a meaner, more-imposing sight in your rear view mirror. In keeping with its SUV styling, the Sorento gets fender guards, filled in with 19” 5-spoke alloys, and a set of side steps to make entry a little easier.

In keeping things a little sporty, the D pillar features a forward sloping window, while the roofline does taper slightly downward. There is also plenty of chrome trim, with the side window framing and door grab handles.

But make no mistake there are no sporting intentions for this SUV, as it is really but with practicality in-mind.

SwiftQuote was swift in quoting a price for my car! It was the highest scrap value that I checked around. After bringing the car to the dealer, the whole process took less than 10mins. I was impressed! Thank you, SwiftQuote!

I sold my car before through other website. The good thing is that SwiftQuote is FREE. I used to pay $100 for this service with that other site. Both are equally good, no hassle and fast. I got to sell my car at a very good price. I would recommend SwiftQuote to any private seller.
