Kia Motors South Africa has expanded its Sorento line-up by adding the new Sorento 2.2 CRDI LS derivative. Priced at R489 995 the new Sorento option sits above the entry level Sorento 2.4 LS.
A six-speed automatic gearbox in the new Sorento is mated to the 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine, which provides more power and better fuel efficiency than the 2.4-litre engine fitted to the manual LS.
The five-seater Sorento has rear seats that feature a 40:20:40 split folding function, as well as 660-litres of cargo space. An LCD screen, located between two analogue dials in the centre of the instrument binnacle, displays all major trip computer information such as vehicle range and average and instant fuel consumption in one place. It also features a Radio / CD / MP3 player, multimedia ports for USB and AUX-in connections, and six speakers around the cabin.
