The SUV received high marks from the judges for its appealing yet practical styling and equipment, as well as its family-friendly and functional interior.
“Kia is on a roll right now, with all of its models oozing with desirability as well as appealing to those who love a sensible car,” said Keith Adams, Editor at Parkers.
The Sorento is one of those vehicles that commands your respect due to its value, space, and technology wrapped in a smart body that conceals its bulk. Where it really shines is in the sheer number of clever and family-friendly touches, such as its abundance of USB ports, a working blind-spot camera, and its spacious and well-made cabin. All of these logical features combine to make it a truly desirable large family car.”
The Sorento SUV comes standard with all-wheel drive, as well as a variety of engine options, including Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid, and Diesel. Each has seven seats and a five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rating, making the Sorento an ideal companion for families or business users who require the extra space that its spacious interior provides.
The Sorento and Sorento Plug-in Hybrid start at £39,360 and are available in highly specified ‘2', ‘3', and ‘4' trim grades, all backed by Kia's reassuring seven-year/100,000 mile warranty.
Since its release in late 2020, the all-new Sorento has won numerous awards from prestigious publications such as What Car? and Carbuyer's 'Car of the Year,' in addition to several large SUV category wins, the What Car? Tow Car Awards outright champion, and even a Red Dot design award.
