Showcasing a refreshed design and new in-car technologies, this latest addition to the Kia Sorento range is destined to set new benchmarks with its bold all-round styling and sophisticated standard of innovation. The spacious seven-seater SUV also features Kia’s new eight-speed automatic transmission for a slick-shifting, more decisive drive. And the upgrades don’t stop there – with more active safety features and intuitive technologies to stay connected and comfortable than ever before.
NEW SPORT-INSPIRED GT LINE
For the first time, the new 2018 Sorento now also comes in a new ‘GT Line’ specification. Inspired by the appearance of Kia’s higher-performance GT models, the Sorento GT Line delivers all the spaciousness and advanced technologies of the standard Sorento in addition to a range of upgrades for those seeking an even sportier design and driving experience. Exterior features include four-lamp LED fog lights, red brake callipers, a more prominent sill step, and subtle GT Line badging. Among the interior extras on offer are quilted seats, finished in black leather with grey stitching, unique gear shift paddles, and satin chrome highlights throughout the cabin.
ENHANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES
The new 2018 Sorento is available with Kia’s latest DRiVE WISE Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) (1). These technologies are at the heart of Kia’s philosophy to create intelligently safe vehicles designed to avoid or mitigate the effects of collisions. One superb example is the new Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system, developed to combat distracted or drowsy driving by alerting the driver if it senses a lapse in concentration. Other new safety features including a Lane Keeping Assist, and full LED headlamps with Dynamic Bending Light make the Sorento one of the safest cars in its class.
SMARTER CONNECTIVITY THAN EVER
This latest-generation Sorento is fitted with Kia’s latest 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, taking reliable route guidance and infotainment to a new level of excellence and ease – thanks Kia Connected Services powered by TomTom® (2), plus Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ (3) enabling full smartphone integration. A wireless smartphone charger (4) in the centre console conveniently lets you charge your smartphones on the move. And there’s also the option of upgrading to the new Harman/Kardon® sound system with Clari-Fi™ technology (5). With its powerful 640-watt, 10-speaker surround-sound credentials, it delivers an incredibly refined in-cabin audio experience.
