Master family life with the Kia Sorento. This handsome SUV boasts massive space, seven seats and a suite of smart technologies that make life easier, like cruise control, power-folding door mirrors and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. KX-2, KX-3, GT-Line and GT-Line S models pile on the kit with leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, Smart Key with push-button start, Adaptive Smart Cruise Control, and on top spec GT-Line S models, Dynamic Bending LED Headlights. The result is a premium car through and through, and the Sorento ain’t half bad on the road either. It’s remarkably agile with muscular performance from a 2.2 CRDi engine. All-wheel drive is also a standard feature.
Bold exterior styling, muscular proportions and a high ground clearance give the Sorento serious presence. It’s a quality product, with that much obvious from the inside where smart technologies and premium materials await.
The Sorento is a refined and comfortable cruiser, but it’s no canal boat. It handles like a Sportage and shifts when you need it to, with the choice of a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission to suit your driving style.
With seven seats the Sorento has space for the whole family. The boot is massive, offering 142-litres of space with all seven seats in place or 605-litres with five in place. Manual versions tow up to 2,500kg, automatic versions up to 2,000kg.
Living with it
Fuel consumption up to 41.5mpg combined means low running costs, and the Sorento will even cruise and park for you with Adaptive Smart Cruise Control and Smart Park Assist, both of which are standard features on GT-Line S models.
