The new Kia Sorento is longer, lower and lighter than before. There is a choice of a five or seven seater layout with a spacious and well equipped cabin. The Kia Sorento comes with a new 2.2 litre diesel engine and six speed auto gearbox options. Expect around 43mpg on the combined cycle and 171 and 174g/km of CO2 depending on your choice between two or four wheel drive.
Standard equipment on all Kia Sorento models runs to alloy wheels, electric-adjustable door mirrors, air-conditioning, Keyless Entry with central locking, an RDS Radio & CD player with MP3, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with DBC (Downhill Brake Control), HAC (Hill-start Assist Control), driver and front passenger airbags, front row, side airbags, full-length curtain airbags and ‘active’ head restraints. Luggage space in this new Kia Sorento is impressive; capacity is increased by 15% over the original model, thanks to moving the tailgate back by 70mm.
The Kia Sorento will be on sale in February and prices will start at approximately £21,000.
