If you’re looking for a spacious family SUV, the Kia Sorento is one of the finest examples money can buy. Plus, this seven-seat vehicle is an especially good choice for large families that enjoy a spot of off-road adventure.
This ruggedly handsome SUV features four big doors, ensuring that access is a breeze, especially since the second row of seats slides backwards and forwards. Full-size travellers will enjoy a comfortable ride, especially in the front two rows, and the third row provides lots of room for a pair of younger passengers to relax in.
There are plenty of cubby spaces throughout the cabin for stowing bottles, drinks and sundry other items too. With the rearmost row folded, the Sorento possesses a very decent 660-litre boot space. With just the front seats in place, luggage volume increases to a more than generous 1,732-litre capacity – and split-folding 40/20/40 rear seats ensure that it’s always easy to achieve an ideal passenger-cargo balance.
The Kia Sorento is powered by a 2.2-litre 197bhp diesel engine, which puts out a peak torque of 441Nm, helping the vehicle to achieve 0-60mph in less than nine seconds. This versatile SUV has proven to be popular with caravan owners. This is thanks to a 2,000kg towing capacity that enables the vehicle to pull full-size mobile homes with ease, while maintaining good stability, even on winding country roads.
The car comes with a maximum five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. This is in recognition of the array of driver aids and passive safety features that are included as standard. For example, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) prevents the Sorento from wobbling whenever it is cornering and braking at the same time. What’s more, VSM works in conjunction with Electronic Stability Control by automatically applying the brakes whenever the car’s sensors detect a loss of traction.
A six-speaker sound system – complete with seven-inch touchscreen display, DAB radio and AM/FM tuner – is included as standard. Bluetooth connectivity features too, enabling music streaming and hands-free mobile phone communication. Also included are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, either of which allows you to mirror your smartphone’s screen via the car’s own display.
