Family-friendly practicality doesn’t come much greater than in the new Kia Sorento. A robust, spacious SUV that’s able to seat seven and tackle all sorts of terrain, it’s the ideal partner for those seeking adventure.
The Sorento’s powerful design – with its bold curves and high ground clearance – gives it a confident attitude out on the road. Details such as the contoured LED headlamps and Graphite Chrome grille surround draw the attention, while wide wheel arches and muscular haunches prove it’s a model that’s ready for anything.
The welcoming cabin incorporates sweeping lines and an intelligent layout to maximise the space available. As a result, up to seven can travel in complete comfort, with 660 litres of boot space ensuring your luggage can be accommodated too.
A 2.2-litre diesel engine propels the new Kia Sorento, providing strong performance for a range of surfaces. Producing 197bhp, it reaches 62mph from a standstill in as little as 8.7 seconds and is teamed with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard – or optional eight-speed automatic – ensuring slick power delivery. With four-wheel drive and soft suspension too, it can handle challenging conditions with confidence and soak up bumps to ensure a smooth ride.
Technology and safety
The Sorento comes in no fewer than five guises and offers a generous amount of equipment to enhance your drive. There’s air conditioning, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth and cruise control all as standard on the KX-1 model, while the KX-2 trim adds comfort features like a heated steering wheel and leather upholstery. Opt for the GT-Line for power adjustable seating and sporty styling touches.
As a family car, the Sorento prioritises safety. Among the standard active measures are Electronic Stability Control, Trailer Stability Assist, Hill-Start Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control – which is particularly useful on tricky terrain.
