The All-New Kia Sorento went on sale on 1st April 2015 from just £28,795 to some very excited customers after a build up which has included motor shows in Seoul, Paris, Detroit, and Geneva, a prime-time Super Bowl commercial starring Pierce Brosnan, a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, and success at two major design awards.
Kia's third-generation flagship model starts the second phase of transforming the brand towards further refinement and quality. As well as new technologies, the new Sorento will offer seven seats, intelligent all-wheel drive as standard, more space and comfort, and an EU6-compliant 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine providing reduced emissions and improved fuel economy.
Kia Motors' Super Bowl XLIX commercial – entitled "Perfect Getaway" – saw the all-new Kia Sorento driven to the edge by former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan as he imagines his next thrilling movie role. Good looking, exciting and armed with handy technology, the Kia Sorento could be a Bond star in its own right!
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.
