The new Kia Sorento builds on the previous model’s outstanding practicality and value, adding yet more elegance and style to the South Korean manufacturer’s largest SUV. The seven-seater is now a highly refined people carrier, competing with its nearest rivals on technological equipment and powerful yet efficient engines. Buyers of the new Kia Sorento can look forward to Kia’s trademark affordability, as well as premium comfort.
Four trim levels will be available, in which the Sorento KX-2 replaces the entry-level model’s 17-inch alloy wheels and fog lights with eye-catching 18-inch alloy wheels and chrome detailing. The revamped front end features a stylish grille, complete with chrome accents and sleek LED daytime running lights that accentuate the Sorento’s modern, expressive look.
The Sorento feels roomy even from the outside, making the seven-seater ideally suited for busy family lifestyles. You can also add roof rails for extra practicality, and split folding seats in both the second and third rows give easy access to the spacious boot.
In the comfort-focused cabin, the entire arrangement has been designed to blend advanced technology with classic style. Reversing cameras will help you navigate tight spots with ease, and the seven-inch touchscreen display features satellite navigation and Bluetooth® connectivity. Upgrade to the highest trim for the advantages of a 36-degree Around View Monitor, as well as other driver assistance systems such as Blind Spot Detection.
Under the new Kia Sorento’s bonnet is one of Kia’s highly capable engines, with several to choose from. The range includes a redesigned 2.2-litre diesel unit twinned with a slick six-speed manual transmission. This model is capable of going from 0-60mph in around nine seconds, and will use 451Nm of peak torque to deliver impressive strength and towing performance. The new generation of intelligent four-wheel drive complements the powerful engines, handling difficult terrain with ease.
