The intuitive, tech-orientated cabin of the Sorento is fitted with premium-quality materials and cutting-edge infotainment, making it one of the highest quality interior spaces found in any Kia to-date. At the same time, the cabin retains the spaciousness and versatility that has characterised the Sorento over its 18-year existence.
The attractive, upscale cabin introduces a sophisticated next-generation design, based around twin digital displays in the dashboard. The 12.3-inch digital driver instrument cluster is twinned with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation system at the centre of the dashboard. The proportions of the all-new Sorento are subtly adapted to make it appear longer in profile, with shorter front and rear overhangs and a longer wheelbase. Its new proportions also extend the length of the bonnet, drawing the A-pillar 30mm further back from the front axle for a more ‘cabrearward’ design.
The Sorento hybrid is powered by a new ‘Smartstream’ electrified powertrain, pairing a 1.6-litre T-GDi (turbocharged gasoline direct injection) petrol engine with a 1.49kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack and 44.2kW electric motor. It produces 230PS and 350Nm torque, and this electrified powertrain combines low CO2 emissions with high levels of performance.
