Kia Sorento 2021 review: Sport+ snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.6
The Sport+ sits high in the Sorento line-up just under the top-of-the-range GT-Line with a list price of $52,850 for the petrol and $55,850 for the diesel.

The Sport+ sits high in the Sorento line-up just under the top-of-the-range GT-Line with a list price of $52,850 for the petrol and $55,850 for the diesel.

The Sport+ grade has 19-inch alloy wheels, a 10.25-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, there’s also sat nav, dual-zone climate, leather seats (heated up front), proximity key with push button start, power tailgate, privacy glass, LED tail lights and remote engine start.

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.
