New Kia Sorento arrived on our market. This is the most advanced, most luxurious and largest Kia model in Europe. The importer of Kia vehicles for our country, the company Kia Auto, organized a local presentation for the press where we could see first hand the quality of the new model.
The first impression is that the Sorento is a really big car. It can also be ordered with seven seats. It has many advanced solutions built in, including moving the second row of seats to a button to access the third.
Safety systems are at the highest level, so automatic braking includes detecting vehicles from the opposite direction when turning, which is the most critical maneuver according to European statistics. The fact that the equipment is new speaks volumes about how luxurious the equipment is The Sorento has the option of parking in the garage via remote control.
A big novelty is the display of views from the camera on the instruments when turning and rearranging. For example, if you give the right turn signal, a display from the right camera will appear on the right instrument, which is especially handy when you have to be careful not to step on the curb with the rear wheel.
Among the novelties is the central side airbag, whose task is to prevent mutual injuries to the driver and co-driver in the event of an accident. Also, the car is designed not to slip after a collision so as not to cause additional problems.
We looked at the car and we can say that the quality of the finish is at the German level, which means that every detail was taken into account, starting from the sound of the door closing all the way to the smallest components such as switches and buttons.
Both versions of the engine will be available in Serbia – a 2.2 diesel with 202 hp and an eight-speed gearbox with a double clutch, as well as hybrids. The hybrids are a combination of a 1.6 turbo petrol with 180 horsepower and an electric motor. The total power of the hybrid system is 230 horsepower.
We offer a version with front and all-wheel drive on both engine variants. The maximum power of the electric motor is 44 kW, or 60 horsepower. All of this applies to the classic hybrid system, and whoever wants, can also order the Plug-In Hybrid with larger batteries that allow a range of only fifty kilometers.
This version has batteries that charge on the socket, and when their power is consumed, the car behaves like a classic hybrid, with charging while driving. The Plug-In Hybrid also has a more powerful 66.9 kW electric motor, or 91 horsepower.
The price of the new Kia Sorento starts from 40,499 euros with VAT. That is the price of the version with a 2.2 diesel and front-wheel drive, while the 4 × 4 is exactly 2000 euros more expensive. Hybrids start at 42,999 euros, without a state subsidy of 2,500 euros for a classic hybrid, or 3,500 euros for a plug-in. The price of a hybrid that can be charged on sockets starts from 52,999 euros with VAT, without subsidies.
