Delivering a premium look and feel,the all-new Kia Sorento blends style, practicality and technology, which builds on the success of the outgoing model. The new Sorento's smoother, swept-back profile and deeply sculpted surfaces introduces a higher level of sophistication for the third-generation model, with more space and numerous innovative features.
'Sophisticated and Luxurious' styling
The evolutionary styling changes subtly alter the character of the new Sorento, highlighting its sleek, sinuous profile, creating a sophisticated appearance and ensuring the new model has a bolder on-the-road presence. The sleeker look of the new Sorento is enhanced by its increased length, reduced height and extra width.
Inside the all-new Sorento is where some of the most significant improvements are to be found. Kia's designers have created a more sophisticated, more luxurious cabin, featuring significantly higher quality materials. The styling of the cabin follows a ‘modern and wide' theme, providing the interior with a stable, horizontal layout and appearance. This width is echoed in the wider instrument cluster, interior garnish and the wrap-around shape of the dashboard which extends into the door trims. A higher proportion of soft-touch materials and leather creates a modern luxury feel to the cabin and gives the new Sorento a genuine premium vehicle ambience. One of the most distinctive interior styling features is the Swiss watch-inspired center-console, which incorporates Kia's latest HMI (human-machine interface) technologies.
Compared to the previous-generation model, the increased exterior dimensions and the extended wheelbase have liberated additional space in the cabin of the new car. Available in five or seven-seat versions, the new Sorento features 40/20/40 second row split folding for improved versatility, with a higher folding centre armrest. The second row seats in the seven-seat version are equipped with ‘remote folding' controlled by two levers in the side of the cargo bay. The new Sorento debuts a number of new, advanced on-board technologies to improve convenience and further enhance the ownership experience.
Improved powertrains, ride and handling
To match consumers' rising expectations, Kia engineers worked to improve every aspect of the new Sorento's driving experience, creating upgrades for the engines, steering and suspension. When developing the new Sorento, a key focus for the Kia chassis engineering team was achieving improvements in ride comfort, high-speed stability and handling response to match the leaps forward in interior quality and refinement. These changes, together with the longer wheelbase, deliver a more compliant ride, with a more progressive response to bumps in the road, making the new Sorento a very comfortable place in which to spend time on longer journeys.
