Kia Sorento 2021 review: Sport snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.4
The Sport sits above the entry level S in the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $48,480 for the petrol variant and $51,480 for the diesel version.

The Sport sits above the entry level S in the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $48,480 for the petrol variant and $51,480 for the diesel version.

Coming standard of the Sport grade are 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, cloth seats, and a 10.25-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also sat nav, dual-zone climate, and a power adjustable driver’s seat.

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.
