A more confident, mature and desirable design
The front of the Sorento evolves with a new interpretation of Kia’s hallmark ‘tiger nose’ grille, displaying a wider shape which organically wraps around the integrated headlamps on each side. The headlamps themselves feature a new ‘tiger eyeline’ LED daytime running light, adding extra focus to the design by depicting the intense impression of the lines around a tiger’s eyes.
One of the highest quality interior spaces found in any Kia to-date, the intuitive, tech-oriented cabin of the new Sorento is fitted with premium-quality materials and cutting-edge infotainment. At the same time, it retains the spaciousness and versatility that has characterised the Sorento over its 18-year existence.
The Sorento’s new four-cylinder 2.2-litre ‘Smartstream’ diesel engine produces 202 ps and 440 Nm torque. Sorento models with this engine can accelerate from 0-to-100 kph in 9.0 seconds for front-wheel drive models, and 9.2 seconds for AWD variants. Top speed for all diesel models is 202 kph, while CO2 emissions are rated from 161 g/km for the front-wheel drive model.
Depending on specification, the cabin incorporates Kia’s latest 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, offering audio-visual navigation, and a new 12.3-inch high-resolution digital instrument cluster. Combined, the two twin digital displays deliver information to the driver with absolute clarity.
A first for Kia in Europe, the standard 8.0-inch display audio system enables drivers to connect their smartphones wirelessly for the first time, enabling full, seamless smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
The new model is equipped with Kia’s new Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM), which acts as a ‘second pair of eyes’ for drivers. It enhances safety for occupants and other road users by eliminating a driver’s left- and right-side blind spots. If the driver indicates to change lane with another vehicle hidden in their blind spot, the system displays a high-resolution video feed on the left or right side of the TFT-LCD instrument cluster. The video feed comes from discreet wide-angle, high-resolution cameras, hidden in each of the door mirror housings. These provide a wider viewing angle than the door mirrors, giving drivers a clear view of any approaching vehicles.
