2011 Kia Sorento EX
Big mid-size CUV sports safety, style Kia’s first CUV manufactured at its new state-ofthe-art plant in West Point, Ga., is a re-imagined SUVCrossover that is envisioned as a fun, functional, versatile, economical and sporty drive. The all-new second-generation 2011 Sorento has eliminated its former stiff truck-based ladder-frame platform and has gone to a more compliant steel unibody construction format that utilizes the badge’s signature design cues. This year’s edition also shows increased power, exceptional safety features and attention to comfort and convenience. With a streamlined and hip appearance, Sorento fits into current consumer demand for smaller multipurpose vehicles that also offer flair and fuel economy. With enough interior space to accommodate seven, Sorento is sizeable for its class and trendy enough in style and substance to appeal to a broad range of consumers.
Sleek exterior The five-door Sorento is a large, “mid-size” SUV hefting a curb weight of 3704 lbs and measuring 183.9 inches in length, 74.2 inches in width and 67.3 inches in height (add another 1.4 inches for a roof rack or 1.8 inches for a sunroof and roof rack). Sitting on a 106.3inch wheelbase, Sorento sports a ground clearance of 7.2 inches, which is fine for minor off-road excursions. On the outside, Sorento displays an aggressive stance, sleek profile, sweptback lines, and the prominent tabbed grille with wraparound headlamps exhibited on all new Kia models. The mid-size utility vehicle presents an angled window line, large flaredback headlamps, asser-
Interior abundance Surprisingly roomy inside – also indicative of a large “middie” CUV — Sorento offers 39.2 inches of frontrow headroom, with 39.2 also in row two and 36.7 inches in the rear row. Legroom goes 41.3, 37.6 and a tight 31.3 in the front, middle and rear, while shoulder room comes in at a comfy 59.3, 58.7 and 53.8. Kia has gained a reputation for filling the interior with a treasure of features, and Sorento keeps that status in force with such cabin items as a tilt and telescopic steering wheel with integrated audio controls, trip computer, illuminated vanity mirror and EcoMinder™ Indicator to assist with fuelefficient driving habits. The EX trim of my test ride included dual automatic temperature control, rear air conditioning and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Adding excellent technology features to the package, Sorento is imbued with such standard features as push-button-start ignition with smart key and rear sonar back-up sensors, an AM/FM/CD/MP3/Sat audio system with SIRIUS® Satellite Radio, auxiliary and USB audio input jacks for connecting personal MP3 players, and Bluetooth wireless technology connectivity with steering wheel-mounted voice activation controls to enable hands-free operation for all compatible mobile phones.
tive fog lamps and rounded nose, back and tail lamps.
Two power choices Available in front-drive or full-time all-wheel drive configurations, Sorento offers two engine choices. The economical 2.4-liter I-4 engine provides 175hp and 169 lbs-ft of torque and is EPA rated at 21 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. The larger 3.5-liter V-6 engine which powered my test drive, produces 276hp and 248 lbs-ft of torque and has an EPA rating (for 4wheel-drive) of 19/26 (my tests came in at 22.3mpg). At only $2800 more for the brawnier engine, the extra power is a very good consideration. Sorento’s engine response is slow, but steady, and passing power is reliable enough if you plan ahead a bit. On the track, my Bright Silver test vehicle managed a 7.7 second sprint from zero to 60 and navigated the quarter-mile in 16-flat. The ride is quiet and road roughness is evened out deftly. Sorento is smooth on the highway with an independent front suspension, MacPherson struts and stabilizer bar complimenting an independent multi-link rear with a stabilizer bar. Steering is tight and reacts appropriately in quick maneuvering with only slight understeer and surprisingly low top-wobble in ess-curve drills. Sightlines are good for the niche, with command center seating placing the driver high for

Hill Start Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control also come standard on all trims, to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when pulling away from an uphill gradient, and to keep the vehicle moving straight and steady down steep grades. The 2011 Sorento has a base price of $20,995 for the 2.4-liter manual 2WD. My all-wheel-drive Sorento in EX trim and automatic transmission was based at $29,095 ($1700 more than the 2WD version). The Premium Package option added $2700 and included roof rails, leather trim seats, heated front seats, rear view backup camera and panoramic

Behind the Wheel
Mitsubishi has racy hatchback for 2011 By ANN M. JOB For The Associated Press
The 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Ralliart is a turbocharged, sporty hatchback that’s tantalizingly close to a bad boy racer. The five-seat, five-door Sportback Ralliart looks the part, with a gaping, dark front grille, sinister-looking headlamps, low-profile sport tires and a prominent rear spoiler. Just a push on the accelerator pedal brings this hot performance hatchback to life as the race-car-derived engine noisily delivers 237 horsepower and 253 footpounds of torque. Thank goodness it comes standard with all-wheel drive. To be sure, there are a minority of people these days looking for a flashy, rather rough-riding, powerful but gasoline-gulping, four-cylinder hatchback. But the 2011 Lancer Sportback Ralliart, with race-car components, is a unique experience and continues to attract many youthful auto enthusiasts.
Top of the line The Lancer Sportback Ralliart is the top of the line of Mitsubishi’s Lancer hatchback series that’s called Sportback and was launched in the 2010 model year. For 2011, the Sportback series has a lower starting retail price because a new, base model — the ES — has been added with a lowerpower engine, generating 148 horsepower. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $17,755 for a 2011 ES with this fourcylinder engine and manual transmission. The lowest starting price for a Lancer Sportback with automatic is $18,655 for a 2011 ES with 148-horsepower, four-cylinder engine. Buyers must step up to a starting MSRP, including destination charge, of $20,655 for the higherpowered, 168-horsepower four cylinder. The top,
Lancer Sportback Ralliart with turbocharged, 237horsepower four cylinder starts at $28,855. There is another racer Mitsubishi Lancer with even more power. The 2011 Lancer Evo has a 291-horsepower, turbo four cylinder and starts at $34,755. But it’s a sedan, not a hatchback.
Hatchback competitors Hatchback competitors to the Lancer Sportback include the 2011 Subaru Impreza, which starts at $18,720 for a 170-horsepower, five-door model and goes to $36,720 for a 305-horsepower, five-door model with turbo four cylinder. Another competitor is the 2011 Mazda3 five-door, which starts at $20,840 for a base, 167-horsepower model and goes to $24,495 for a 2011 Mazdaspeed3 hatchback with turbocharged, 263-horsepower four cylinder. The test Lancer Sportback Ralliart attracted attention with its unabashedly bold appearance. Young people especially noticed this car, which was painted a bright Octane Blue color that almost seemed to glow. Engine power came on quickly, with little turbo lag. I zoomed forward to merge into city traffic and passed other cars easily on twolane, country roads.
Pedal to the metal The accelerator pedal took a bit of learning, because if I didn’t meter the pressure at the outset, I found the car quickly getting beyond residential speed limits. In fact, when I kept the car at 25 miles an hour, I felt as if this sporty car was crawling along the pavement. The engine punch of power, or torque, is available very early in the rev band, meaning it’s there at slower speeds and is palpable. Indeed, all 253 foot-pounds of torque comes on by 3,000 rpm. The only transmission is a six-speed, dual-clutch, automated manual Sportronic Shift that worked well to manage driver de-

Don’t expect great fuel mileage. The test car had a federal government rating of 17 miles per gallon in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway. It’s difficult to get into a car like this, though, and drive modestly. The test car, with 65 percent city driving, managed only 18.6 miles per gallon and I never loaded it up with a lot of passengers and cargo. Premium gasoline is needed for optimal performance, too. The thing that stuck with me was how noisy, even rough-sounding, the engine was at times. This combined with the constant road noise from the 18-inch summer tires, including every clunk as the tires went over manhole covers, was fatiguing. But I didn’t notice it so much when I cranked up the 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system. Another point: The Sportback models are 15 feet long
— longer than the Impreza and Mazda3 five-door models — and they don’t look or feel small as they are driven.
A bit of heft I noticed a bit of heft to the test car, too, as it moved precisely through mountain roads and around curves. The Sportback Ralliart model is more than 3,500 pounds, so it’s not a lightweight like some other smaller, sporty hatchbacks. The all-wheel drive system worked well on dry and wet pavement. Note it’s called All-Wheel Control and is derived from the system on Mitsubishi’s rally race cars. The power steering moved the test car precisely. I appreciated the wide cargo area at the back, though tall items can be problematic. And rear seatbacks fold down to provide more room. But interior plastics on the dashboard did not impress. The hard plastic pieces seemed ho-hum, and the tactile feedback from some
In Focus BASE PRICE: $16,995 for ES with manual; $17,895 for ES with CVT; $19,895 for GTS with manual; $20,895 for GTS with CVT; $28,095 for Ralliart. AS TESTED: $34,105. TYPE: Front-engine, all-wheel-drive, five-passenger, compact hatchback. ENGINE: 2-liter, double overhead cam, turbocharged and intercooled, MIVEC, inline four cylinder. MILEAGE: 17 mpg (city), 25 mpg (highway). TOP SPEED: 138 mph. LENGTH: 180.4 inches. WHEELBASE: 103.7 inches. CURB WEIGHT: 3,592 pounds. BUILT AT: Japan. OPTIONS: Touring package (includes high-intensity discharge headlamps, 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate audio system, Sirius satellite radio with complimentary three months of service and leather-trimmed seats) $3,100; navigation system $2,150. DESTINATION CHARGE: $760.
knobs and buttons conveyed a cheap feel. At 5 feet 4, I could have used some additional height adjustment on the driver seat. And two adults, not three, would do best in the back seat, though there are head restraints and safety belts for three. All safety equipment is standard, including curtain air bags, a driver knee air bag to help the driver remain in proper position
during a crash, electronic stability control and traction control. The navigation system that was in the test car is an optional $2,150, which seems like a high price compared with nav system pricing in other cars. Drivers also need to watch that they don’t park too close to curbs. The stylish, multi-spoke wheels with the low-profile rubber scrape easily.
Don’t wait to change wiper blades
A natural and economic solution for safer roads
Clear vision is essential to safe driving, especially in the wintertime. Neglect your wiper blades, and you may find yourself in hazardous weather situations with limited vision. The most important aspect of driving is being aware of your surroundings. When the weather takes a turn for the worse, a driver’s best friend is a set of wiper blades that leave your windshield with a consistent, clean, clear wipe. Not only is a clean windshield a necessity during rain, snow and sleet, but how many times have you experienced a windshield that is smeared with insects, bird droppings, road tar or other messy deposits? Removing such dirt with worn wiper blades is nearly impossible. Usually, you wind up smearing the mess and obscuring your vision even more. If you change your blades regularly, you can avoid these problems and keep your eyes clearly on the road.
Knowing when to change your blades So wh e n s h o u l d yo u change your wiper blades? When a blade is past its physical prime, it will show wear signs like cracking or discoloration. Another indicator that it’s time for new wiper blades is by the quality of the wipe. Streaking or unwiped areas are a dead giveaway. If the blades make noise or chattering sounds, then they need to be replaced. On some newer blades, such as PEAK Valeo Smart-

If you change your blades regularly, you can avoid problems and keep your eyes clearly on the road. Blade, there is a built-in wear indicator which recognizes diminished blade performance. By taking one glance at the indicator, you will know when they need replacing.
How often should you replace your blades? If your blades don’t have a special indicator, the National Highway Transportation Board recommends that drivers change their wiper blades, at minimum, every year. However, the average vehicle owner replaces his/her wiper blades only once every 2.5 years. “Most people wait until they are in a downpour and nearly drive off the road be-
“Most people wait until they are in a downpour and nearly drive off the road before they are convinced it’s time to change blades.” Jenifer Maddox
PEAK automotive products
fore they are convinced it’s time to change blades,” says Jenifer Maddox, product manager for PEAK Automotive Products. Some blades, such as the SmartBlade, even come with simple connector systems that make installing the blades on any vehicle a snap, so there is no excuse
for not replacing worn out blades. If you’ve been procrastinating about changing your windshield wiper blades, take a few minutes today to change them. You’ll be glad you did when your windows are clear and dry this winter. — ARAContent
Life doesn’t stop when dangerous winter road conditions arise. Emergency vehicles respond to citizen needs, and school buses must take children to school. So when wintery weather causes traffic problems, drivers are left to rely on local road professionals to use the best technologies available to keep them safe. More and more North American counties and municipalities are using treated salt, a high performance de-icer available from major salt manufacturing companies like North American Salt Company (NASC). Snow and ice removal crews find that treated salt is an economical de-icing solution that increases road safety during severe winter weather and is effective even in extreme temperatures. For example, NASC’s Thawrox clears ice in temperatures as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit, extending the window for safe road management.
Clearer roads Drivers also may appreciate seeing clearer roads while sharing the road with fewer snow-removal vehicles. “For road crews, a product like Thawrox that works well at extreme temperatures means fewer trips out to cover the roads saving the municipality and its residents money,” says Gary VanRoboys, president of Preferred Transport, a carrier of bulk commodities in Ontario, Canada, who provided treated salt to municipal transporta-
tion departments last winter. Treated salt can reduce application rates by as much as 25 to 40 percent. By decreasing the amount of product applied, trucks need fewer trips to clear the same amount of territory. This saves taxpayer dollars by reducing product cost, fuel usage and labor costs for local snow removal professionals.
Liquid de-icer Many road crews have adopted a liquid de-icing program, which sounds counterintuitive but actually is very effective. The liquid de-icer, when sprayed on salt during the spreading process, reduces bounce and scatter from the highway as it is applied. Treated salts contain a sticky ingredient similar to molasses that comes pre-treated on the salt and keeps the salt on the road so it doesn’t blow away in high winds or bounce into the ditch. Using a treated salt instead of a de-icing liquid means that companies or governments spreading salt don’t need to buy liquid application or storage equipment. They can keep using their current salt spreading equipment. The distinctive orange, and in some locations brown, coloring of treated salt makes it easier for applicators to know how much and where the product is applied. This translates to significant savings for everyone — especially taxpayers. — ARAContent
