#KIAWarped

A little while back, I had the absolute pleasure of spending a weekend with Kia Motors. Now, I must preface this post by saying I am not an auto reviewer (surprise, surprise, ya?). But what I can tell you is I am your everyday city gal who also happens to drive. Of course, one the very many great things about living in San Francisco is that the public transportation is amazing. But, every now and then I cringe when I think about doing my groceries, or getting out of town. For those days, having a car would be an absolute delight. Cue Kia.

The Kia team generously offered to loan me a car for a weekend to test our their new 2014 Sorento. Another thing you need to know about me? I've ALWAYS wanted to drive a big car - an SUV to be exact. So imagine my glee when I found out I'd be driving around town in one? (All smiles on this girl's face.) Aside from being roomy (I mean, hello, this girl can practically roll around in that huge trunk!), the Sorento is counter-intuitive, meaning for driving hazards such as myself (just kidding you guys, safety first), it's got just about everything you need to make your ride that much smoother. For instance, one of my initial hesitations about driving a big car was parallel parking and backing up. Not a problem for the Sorento. Thanks to its rear camera display and backup warning system, backing up was a breeze. Other fancy features? Sure the car has all you necessities - GPS, phenomenal stereo system, impressive fuel efficiency, and push button start (hello, no keys!), but can we talk about the heated front seating? Now you're talking to a girl who loves her warmth - get me in a car that offers heated seating and I'm basically sold (especially when you live in a city like San Francisco and can barely predict its bipolar weather patterns). In a nutshell, the Sorento a dream car for the weekend. Serious talk - by the end of my weekend, all I wanted to do was keep the car. Sadly, stealing is sort of frowned upon, so I had to give it back...


A BIG, big thank you, thank you to the Kia Team for the fabulous weekend - you guys totally rocked my world. For more snaps of my weekend with Kia, stay tuned! Another post headed you way in just a jiffy.
