EXPERT RATING

The GT-Line sits at the top of the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $60,070 for the petrol variant and $63,070 for the diesel version.

The GT-Line sits at the top of the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $60,070 for the petrol variant and $63,070 for the diesel version.

Coming standard on the GT-Line are 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, Nappa leather seats (heated front and second row), a 10.25-inch display and also sat nav, dual-zone climate, proximity key with push-button start, power tailgate, privacy glass, LED tail-lights and remote engine start. There’s also a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, mood lighting, 12-speaker Bose sound system, head-up display, wireless phone charger and a panoramic sunroof.

As with the previous Sorento there’s a choice of a 3.5-litre petrol V6 or a turbo-diesel four-cylinder. Essentially, they are the same engines from the previous model and the outputs are almost unchanged with the diesel making 148kW/440Nm, while the petrol produces 206kW/336Nm.

All petrol variants are front-wheel drive, while diesel versions are all-wheel drive.

The Kia Sorento has yet to be crash tested, but it would be shocking if this new-gen SUV does not score the maximum five-star ANCAP rating, when the results come out.

All grades come with AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot collision avoidance and then the GT-Line also has blind spot view monitor which shows the view behind you on whichever side you’re indicating towards.
