IRVINE, Calif., June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2011 Sorento has earned tremendous critical and consumer acclaim since arriving in showrooms, and now Kia Motors' best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for 17 consecutive months has been recognized as one of the "Best Family Cars of 2011" by Parents magazine and Edmunds.com.  The U.S.-built* Sorento was selected for offering families a variety of standard safety and convenience features, including optional third row seating, a spacious interior and responsive handling at a tremendous value and low starting price.  A proven family favorite, the Sorento previously was named to the "Best Cars for Families" list by Kiplinger's Personal Finance and "Top 10 Cars for 2011" by Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com.

"This honor from Parents magazine and Edmunds.com is a testament to the Sorento's great styling and long list of standard safety features which has continued to resonate with U.S. families since its launch last year," said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing & communications, Kia Motors America (KMA).  "The Sorento is built in our first U.S. plant in West Point, Georgia and exemplifies Kia's commitment to producing high-quality and fuel efficient vehicles designed to withstand the rigors of family life while exceeding the expectations of our consumers.  We have seen many new customers drawn to the Kia brand due to the Sorento's popularity, and our dealers have done an outstanding job of explaining the CUV's family-friendly benefits and exceptional value proposition."

Editors from Parents magazine and Edmunds.com selected the top three vehicles in five categories: crossover, budget, eco-friendly, big cars and sedan.  Vehicles were judged on their fuel efficiency, safety, handling and family-friendly features.  All vehicles recognized on the list come standard with a full set of front, side and side-curtain air bags, antilock brakes and electronic stability control.  For more information about the Parents magazine and Edmunds.com "Best Family Cars of 2011" list please visit http://www.parents.com/parenting/money/car-buying/best-family-cars/.
