The Kia Sorento has been named as Total 4x4's Best SUV for the second in a row

The Kia Sorento has been named as Total 4x4’s Best SUV for the second in a row. Editor Alan Kidd said ‘the Sorento was our reigning champion in the full-size SUV class, and it impressed us every bit as much this year as last. Its style, poise, kit and practicality all score heavily in its favour.

Michael Cole, Managing Director of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd said “from the day of its launch we knew that the latest Sorento continued the car’s impressive record of delivering excellent go-anywhere ability coupled with on-road sophistication at a great value price. Sorento has been a long-time favourite in the Kia range and its popularity amongst a wide variety of customers, from those who want on-road towing security or all-weather ability to the more adventurous owner who needs to head away from the main roads.

The new Kia Sorento is longer lower and lighter than before. There is a choice of a five or seven seater layout with a spacious and well equipped cabin. The Kia Sorento comes with a new 2.2 litre diesel engine and six speed auto gearbox options. It is capable of approximately 43mpg on the combined cycle and 171 and 174g/km of CO2 depending on your choice between two or four wheel drive.
