The Kia Sorento has been a staple in Kia's portfolio as a full-size SUV for more than 20 years. The 4th generation has now undergone a comprehensive update recently.

Versatility has been a hallmark of the Kia Sorento over four generations: it's available with five or seven seats, offers an efficient driving range with plug-in hybrids and diesels and cuts well on the road as well as when traveling on the motorway. .

The new model edition features a distinctively changed appearance, new body colours, an upgrade in comfort and design in the interior including a new color variant and sustainable materials as well as new user-friendly technologies and modern assistance systems.

The choice for driving in Austria is still the standard all-wheel drive hybrid, as are the top-line (252 hp) and the 193 hp 2.2-litre diesel, which is also offered as all-wheel drive. The diesel engine has an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the hybrid version has a six-speed automatic transmission. It combines an electric motor (battery capacity: PHEV 13.8 kWh) and a 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine. The 7-year factory warranty also includes the motor battery for electric versions.

There are two equipment levels to choose from, upon request and for an additional charge of €1,000, the third row of seats transforms the Sorento into a seven-seater in the available Gold and Platinum equipment options.

The Sorento Gold is truly fully equipped. In addition to the 12.3-inch navigation system with DAB+ reception, there is a Bose audio system and connectivity for AppleCarPlay™ or Android Auto™, as well as Kia Connect.

The Sorento Platinum also offers 20-inch wheels, alloy pedals, and a head-up display (HUD). The digital key also allows you to unlock the car using your smartphone.
