Kia launches new Sorento ‘Edition’

Kia UK Limited is introducing the Kia Sorento ‘Edition’, a premium and single grade available across the seven-seat SUV’s trio of powertrains, to replace the current grade line-up.

The ‘Edition’ specification ensures a desirable and modern vehicle, tailored to the needs of UK customers, while streamlining the production and delivery process of this highly sought after SUV. The three efficient and modern powertrain options remain, comprising hybrid, plug-in hybrid and diesel, catering to varying customer needs and driving patterns.

Replacing the ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘4’ trim grades, ‘Edition’ will come with an impressive and comprehensive list of standard features and equipment, with black exterior styling to bring a bold new image to the Sorento. This includes a black front grille trim, black mirror caps, black roof rails and black side window trim. In addition, diesel models gain 20-inch black alloy wheels, while hybrid and plug-in hybrid benefit from 19-inch alloy wheels. Customers are able to choose from three monochrome paint options, perfectly suiting ‘Edition’s darker details: White Pearl, Graphite or Midnight Black.

Building on the outgoing top-spec ‘4’ grade, ‘Edition’ features the highest levels of equipment ever seen on Sorento. This includes: Panoramic Sunroof; Customisable Head-up Display; Power Opening Tailgate; Remote Smart Parking Assist; Blind-spot Collision Avoidance Assist; 360° Around View Monitor; Blind Spot View Monitor; Bose™ Premium Sound System with 12 Speakers; Wireless Mobile Phone Charger; 10-way Power Adjustable Driver’s Seat with Lumbar Support and Integrated Memory System; 8-way Power Adjustable Front Passenger Seat; Front and Outer Rear Heated Seats; and Front Ventilated Seats.

Indicative pricing starts from £49,495. Final pricing will be confirmed closer to delivery. Customers will be able to register their interest online for the new Sorento ‘Edition’ from today, with pre-orders available at Kia dealers from mid-July. First customer deliveries are expected in Q2 2023. Like all Kia models, the Sorento ‘Edition’ benefits from Kia’s pioneering seven-year/100,000 mile warranty as standard.

The fourth-generation Sorento has won numerous awards since its launch in 2020. Highlights include being named ‘Large SUV of the Year’ at the 2021 What Car? Car of the Year Awards, ‘Best Large SUV’ at the Women’s World Car of the Year Awards 2021 and ‘Best Large Family Car’ at the 2022 Parkers New Car Awards. Furthermore, the entire Sorento line-up was awarded the coveted five star Euro NCAP safety rating.

The Sorento is a core part of Kia’s electrified Eco range, comprising 10 models that feature hybrid, plug-in hybrid or electric power. Between them, these models account for more than one in three cars sold for the brand so far this year, further cementing Kia as a leader in electrification.
