EXPERT RATING

The S is the entry point into the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $45,850 for the petrol version and $48,850 for the diesel variant.

The S is the entry point into the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $45,850 for the petrol version and $48,850 for the diesel variant.

Coming standard on the S grade are 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, cloth seats, and an 8.0-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

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.
