Sorento wins third Total 4×4 magazine award
The new Kia Sorento has received much praise and its third award from Total 4×4 magazine, awarded the “Most Improved” contender.
The new Sorento just launched in the UK and Europe in September, has a long list of improvements including a new platform, revised engines, enhanced interior quality and a smarter, more modern look.
Editor Alan Kidd said: “The Sorento has won its class in each of the last two years, beating a whole range of premium opposition in the process. This year’s upgrades move it closer than ever to becoming a premium SUV itself; we didn’t have many criticisms of the old model, but Kia has addressed every single one of them.
“The Sorento was already one of the best 4x4s on the market; now it’s better than ever, and by a long way. Nothing less than an all-new Range Rover could stop it from completing a hat-trick of class wins, and that says a lot about just how good Kia has become at making world-class 4x4s,” he added.
The Sorento range comes only with a 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engine and a host of emission-reducing and fuel-stretching features. Available with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions and seven seats as standard the Sorento range starts at £26,495. Kia’s industry-leading, fully transferable seven year warranty is also a standard fitment and owners can fix their running costs three years servicing and MOT for just £379.
