Video: All you need to know about the all-new Kia Sorento December 9th, 2014
Kia’s premium SUV model, the all-new Sorento, made its overseas debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show earlier this year. While it wowed the crowd with its bold look at first glance, there’s lots more to discover when it comes to this exciting new generation’s wide variety of features and specs. Spencer Cho, head of Kia’s Overseas Product Marketing Team, has broken down the reasons why the all-new Sorento is poised to be the best in its class.

Roomy and Luxurious Design
The 3rd generation Sorento is longer, wider, and lower than the previous generation. Its new look is not only sleeker but also provides more room for passengers, while making it easier to get into and out of the vehicle. The interior features a ‘modern and wide’ theme outfitted with high-end materials and an upgraded layout for a roomier feel.
Excellent Safety Rating
All-new Sorento has been awarded the highest five-star crash safety rating by Euro NCAP thanks to its stronger structure and variety of passive and active safety features. Its body is composed of 53% ultra-high strength steel, making it more resistant to external impacts. The full range of advanced safety features, such as Active Hood System, Blind Spot Detection, and Advanced Smart Cruise Control incorporating Kia’s state-of-the-art technology, take all-new Sorento’s safety to a level that owners deserve.
Driver comfort was a core requirement in the all-new Sorento’s development. The latest technologies were applied to create Kia’s most interactive SUV to date. Some of its user-friendly features include 8-inch Navigation Display, Smart Parking Assistant System, Idle Stop & Go, and Smart Power Tailgate, which automatically opens the tailgate for access to the cargo area when the smart key is within a meter of the rear of the vehicle for more than three seconds.
