The all-new Kia Sorento is on sale now after winning a prestigious iF Design Award and What Car?'s Best Seven-seat SUV Under £40,000" in 2015, plus awards for safety (including a five-star Euro NCAP rating) and its environmental impact during manufacturing and ownership.
The third-generation Sorento is longer, lower and broader than the previous model thanks to its all-new platform, while an extended wheelbase creates greater room in all three rows of seats. Minutely detailed body and chassis engineering work has created an SUV which is more engaging to drive and more refined, with excellent dynamic design inside and out and plenty of power and performance.
The all-new Sorento has even more space and quality comfort inside too, topped off with a panoramic glass sunroof. The roomy interior is made up of wide, horizontal lines with luxurious details and is capable of holding up to 1,732 litres of cargo in the luggage area.
The Sorento will offer intelligent all-wheel drive as standard and an EU6-compliant 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine providing reduced emissions and improved fuel economy. Depending on the model, buyers have a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Technologies that are new to the Sorento include Adaptive Smart Cruise Control to maintain a gap to the vehicle ahead, Speed Limit Information, Around View Monitoring, Cross Traffic Alert to prevent the owner from backing out of a parking space into the path of an approaching vehicle, a Smart Park Assist System which now includes reverse and parallel departure functions, Lane Departure Warning with Blind Spot Detection and self-dimming Adaptive Front Lighting.
