2011 Kia Sorento CUV Donated to Habitat for Humanity

The North American division of Kia announced today it has donated a new 2011 Sorento CUV to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. However, the company is also involved in other community service projects and home-building efforts, part of the YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: THERE'S A PARTY IN MY CITY! tour in Southern California.

The tour is scheduled to start August 27 in Bethel, New York, and ends in Dallas, Texas, on December 12, 2010.

Kia has also donated nearly 40 vehicles total to organizations such as the Special Olympics of Southern California, the Irvine Unified School District for use in automotive trade classes, and the Rio Hondo Regional Truck Academy for firefighter training and emergency prepares.

“Kia Motors is committed to making a difference in communities, and as presenting sponsor of the YO GABBA GABBA! Tour, we are proud of the hope Habitat for Humanity will bring to 60 cities across the country," said Tom Loveless, vice president, sales, KMA. "It is a challenging time for non-profit organizations and with the YO GABBA GABBA! tour kicking off, we wanted to show how much Kia Motors values the tremendous work Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles is doing in our local area."

The CUV, which went on sale in early January, was the first vehicle to roll off the line at Kia’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in West Point, Georgia.

Available in LX en EX trims, and soon in the SX, the 2011 Sorento is offered with a choice of two engine configurations, namely a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine outputting 172 horsepower and a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 273 horsepower, both mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
