The Sorento, which has sold around 2002 million units since its debut in 1,5, remains one of Kia's most important and best-selling vehicles.

The design of the new Sorento builds on the strength and aesthetics of previous Sorento generations. The sharp lines, corners and dynamic body structure in the new design allow the vehicle to display a more sporty stance. A longer wheelbase, more space for passengers and their belongings, and upgraded technology make the 2022 model Sorento stand out among other SUVs.

The 2022 model New Sorento also draws attention as it is the first model produced with Kia's new SUV platform. The New Kia Sorento, which hit the roads in Europe with hybrid and diesel engine options, is on the road in Turkey as of 2022 with only its hybrid version.

Award-Winning Design

Sorento, with its fourth generation introduced in March 2020, was awarded in the "Design" category by Auto Bild Allrad, Europe's best selling automobile magazine.

The new Sorento is produced at 10 mm, 1.900 mm wider than the third generation Sorento. In addition, the vehicle is 4.810 mm long and 15 mm higher than the previous generation. This height also promises a smooth ride in rough terrain conditions.

Kia Sorento redefines the successful design of previous-generation SUVs, combining new styling elements with high-tech details.

The tiger-nosed grille, which organically wraps the integrated headlights on both sides in Kia Sorento's exterior design, gives the new model a confident and mature stance. At the bottom, there are LED daytime running lights for a better driving experience.

While the interior of the Sorento includes glossy surfaces, metal textured and wood-like coatings, there are also leather embossed patterns on the optional leather-equipped models. In addition, thanks to the large interior volume of Sorento, a 5+2 seating arrangement is offered. This seems to be the reason for preference for large families.

Thanks to the Head Up Display or the ghost display screen, as it is often used in Turkey, drivers can move without taking their eyes off the road. Intelligent Cruise Control with Stop and Go feature allows the vehicle to move for kilometers on its own and to stop when the vehicle in front of it stops and moves when it moves. The driver only needs to touch the steering wheel when the buzzer sounds.

Vehicle Selections by Purpose of Use

If your purpose of use is to make more roads and have an off-road experience, you can buy an upper-middle or upper class SUV 4×4 vehicle. Vehicles in this class, which have a larger interior volume and higher engine capacity, also make a difference in performance. In this way, you can have a comfortable driving experience outside the city and on rough terrain.

If it is going to be used in the city, it may be more appropriate to choose a small or compact SUV. Thus, there is no parking problem in the city and the maneuverability of the drivers increases. In addition, advantages are obtained in terms of usage cost.
