Kia Sorento Sports comes to New Zealand

kia-sorento-sports-fq

A limited edition Sports model has been added to the Kia Sorento range in New Zealand.

The new Kia Sorento Sports will be available only for a short time and Kia Motors is expecting them to be snapped up quickly once buyers eye the package.

The Sorento is already among the best equipped 4×4 vehicles in its class and the new Sports model is bristling with additional features that include:

* Body-coloured running boards that add to the sleek styling and also provide a step into and out of the vehicle
* Larger 18″ alloy wheels fitted with high performance tyres
* Tinted windows to reduce summer heat
* Chrome door mirror caps
* Upgraded audio system featuring 6 CD stacker
* Tow bar system with detachable towball
* Unique Sports badging.

Price for the new Sorento Sports is $57,450 — very attractive considering the additional equipment.

All Sorento models are powered by the frugal 2.5-litre DOHC turbocharged Common Rail Diesel engine that delivers 125kW of power and 392Nm of torque. Also standard is the 5-speed automatic transmission equipped with sport shift.

Other equipment in the Sorento Sports includes dual zone climate control, full leather upholstery interior, heated front seats, power driver’s seat, leather steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, reversing sensors, electronic stability control with ABS anti-lock braking, front and side airbags, selectable 4WD with high and low range, front and rear fog lamps, rear spoiler etc.

The Sorento makes an ideal towing vehicle with its strong, separate ladder chassis providing it with the capacity to easily and safely pull 2.8 tonnes.

Sorento continues to receive critical praise from both the motoring media and the car-buying public. Recently it was the top rated mid-size SUV with customers, according to US vehicle research company AutoPacific Inc, which surveyed more than 34,000 owners. Sorento was also picked by respected US publication The Car Book as a “Best Bet” in the mid-size SUV category.
