I've never done a 0-60 test on my Nox (and don't feel the need) but the 8.7 second 0-60 time that the 4cyl Nox is capable of would have been a good time for a car with a V6 or even V8 not that many years back. Heck it's still a respectable acceleration time no matter how you look at it...and it doesn't come at the expense of fuel economy.

I totally agree. The gearing of the trans and the power of the Ecotec is WAY more than most people think it will be. The A6 really does help with it.

Also, if you do drive it like in the video, it does come at the expense of the fuel economy. LOL :D

I test drove the Sorrento. Has a bigger feel but was a little sluggish compared to the Nox. I didn't like the red gauges, The shifter was stange and the radio not as nice as the Nox. But I liked the signals on the mirror. I give the edge to the Nox but you can get a Sorrento for a couple thousand less and you get the longer warranty. If GM didn't buy my VUE I'd be in a Sorrento

Seems the 'Nox simply blew the Kia away. Interesting they didn't show or comment much on the 'Nox through the slalom course. It's much better than most other SUVs there too. The 8.7 0-60 was amazing too. I thought it was higher than that. The i4 does have some punch, but that's a normal GM thing. GM just cares more about the fun in driving than any Japanese or Korean car maker does.

We are down in GA visiting my sister and husband for a couple days. They have a lease agreement on a 2012 Sorento, FWD, from June of last year. He has the I4 and said he gets 22 mpg hwy and 18 city, isn't that terrific? I said we avg about the same with our 12', V6, AWD, Terrain with AC on. We rode in his Sorento yesterday and today and the ride was comfortable in the back seat. It has nice air vents in the rear seating area, which were adjustable.

I just thought I would say something as Kia is just ordinary. IMO

Having several friends who have purchased Hyundai and Kia SUV's I have noticed a trend. They all have dumped them when things started to need fixed and went to GM and Ford products with no complaints. They all felt they saved money and got a great deal with them at the purchase time but found from 60,000 miles that things needed fixed that were not warranty items.

The shine came off the penny and most got tired of expensive repairs on something they bought to save money.

I think it is a good case of you get what you pay for.

I see them as like older Chrysler products where you save up front but in the end you pay. The Chryslers were good lease cars for years as you would get 3 good years and then the cars would start blowing blue smoke from burning oil and head gasket issues. I called them great lease cars.
