If you’ve ever been on an all girls’ adventure, you know that the ‘get away’ car is important! You understand that said vehicle should be just as stylish as its occupants. Not only should it be spacious enough to fit a fleet of fabulous divas, but it should be cater capable because the girls in question have lots of demands. Let me explain…
Recently I had the opportunity to take the 2016 Kia Sorento for a spin. I had already chronicled my adventures in the 2014 Sorento, so I was super excited to see what the new 2016 Sorento was all about. And I knew exactly the perfect way to test its ‘get away’ abilities… With a girl’s day getaway of course!
Upon walking up to Sorento, you are immediately greeted with a
Hello ‘Hi Gorgeous!’ courtesy of the Smart Welcome Lighting system. Talk about first impressions! 🙂 The Sorento also gives you (and your passengers) the red carpet treatment as the stainless-steel Illuminated Door Scuff Plates brings on the bling when entering the vehicle. So fab!!! Now that it had my undivided attention, it was time to hit the road with a few friends.
Each year I host an all girls gathering called Girls & Goals. Girls & Goals is when my gal pals and I get together to chat about our big ambitions and map them out on vision boards, to hopefully manifest these goals into reality. And if you know anything about vision board parties, you know that they require lots of ambition, big dreams, and a vehicle with enough space to carry loads of aspirations (and a ton of supplies). And… because there are Fashionista’s on board, it’s gotta be super stylish!
For this year’s Girls & Goals event, we drove up to Chateau Elan Winery & Estate in Braselton, Ga. Now, no road trip would be complete without a little radio karaoke, and the Sorento’s SiriusXM® enabled audio system was definitely up for the fun. And we were thrilled to see that no matter how many tweets we tweeted or pics we snapped, our phones could stay charged up with the multiple USB ports located throughout the cabin. It’s like the 2016 Sorento knew the way to our hearts! 😍
As the chauffer of the trip, I liked that the Sorento had a 14-way power seat so that I could totally customize it for comfort… And it definitely didn’t hurt that all of the seats were made from Premium Nappa Leather – so comfy and chic! The 2016 Sorento was fully equipped with lots of extras, and what girl doesn’t love to be pampered with extras! The 2016 Sorento also has Surround View Monitoring, because we’ve got to look good at all angles, right? 😉 And don’t let me forget about the safety systems that cater to your every move like the Lane Departure Warning System, which kept us safe when we needed it the most – looking out when other drivers make bad moves, and even keeping me in line, too! (Which hubby thought was impossible) 😉
When we arrived at the winery, we were just blown away by the beauty of it. The Sorento’s Panoramic Moonroof definitely helped us catch the countryside sights and take in the scenery.
The Sunday brunch at Chateau Elan was absolutely lovely – mimosas and girlfriends with a beautiful backdrop – what more could a girl ask for?! It was such a fantastic day full of fun, and we really etched out some big goals for the year that I can’t wait to see come to life!
I’m so happy we had the 2016 Kia Sorento as our girls’ day getaway vehicle, because it made our adventure that much more glamorous. 😉
Hey, if you’re looking for a ride that can handle your busy lifestyle with ease, pampers you at every turn, and keeps an eye on things even when you don’t, the 2016 Kia Sorento is the perfect ride for you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some ‘goal gettin’ to get back to. 😉
