Kia Sorento wins large crossover award
The Kia Sorento has won the Large Crossover category in The Sunday Times Top 100 Cars.
The model was applauded for its versatility as a seven-seat family car, styling and towing ability. The new Kia Sorento, which launched in the UK in 2015, came from a line of previous generations stretching back to 2002 and has proven popular with British customers. Now in its third generation, the Sorento is better kitted out, more refined and technologically advanced than before.
Power and practicality
The Kia model is powered by a smooth 2.2 turbodiesel engine that produces as little as 149g/km tailpipe emissions and can deliver up to 49.6mpg (combined). With seven seats as standard across the line-up, the Sorento is practical for families as well as those that occasionally need to carry more people – when the back seats are not in use they fold flat into the floor allowing for greater boot space. All models have a new, permanent, intelligent all-wheel drive system ready to tackle terrain off the black stuff; manual versions of the Sorento are capable of towing 2,500kg – useful for those that need a motor capable of hauling a caravan or horse box.
The new Kia Sorento is on sale at Perrys with prices starting from just £28,795.
