An Uncompromising Approach to Keeping Your Family Safe
For all its elegance and style, Sorento is also a vehicle of real substance. Additional built-in passive strength is further enhanced by some of the most advanced active safety technology available today.
There is an all-new Multi-Collision Brake auto braking system, designed to work with Forward Collision Avoidance Assist. Blind Spot Collision Avoidance, Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance and Lane Keep Assist all combine to reduce the chance of a collision, but in that unlikely event, seven airbags will protect you and your family.
The innovative Blind Spot View Monitor (BVM) display in your dashboard gauge cluster shows you a live camera view of your rear blind spots. Parking sensors and the rear-view camera are complemented with a 360° around-view monitor, making you aware of unsuspecting pedestrians, young children or pets that may wander
near your vehicle.
Young family members are further protected by five anchorage points for child restraints, speed sensing auto lock and a power child safety lock, as well as rear occupant alert meaning no-one gets left behind.
Also new for 2021 is Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA). Operated from the key fob, RSPA autonomously controls steering and vehicle movement, enabling Sorento to enter or exit a parking space on its own. Available on Premium model only, operating conditions apply.
DESIGN EXCELLENCE IN EVERY DETAIL
Where Art Meets Science
Athletic and dynamic, the 2021 Kia Sorento rewrites SUV style. Built on an all-new platform, Sorento immediately grabs you with its elongated, sculpted silhouette and purposeful stance. This latest interpretation of the iconic “Kia Tiger Nose grille” is easily the most incisive and purposeful ever.
VERSATILITY THAT CREATES EXTRA COMFORT
Sorento is Ready for Your Lifestyle
Whether you want to accommodate a big family or lots of weekend adventure gear, Sorento’s wider, longer, three-row cabin is more than up to the task. Welcoming and luxurious on one hand, it is also highly functional, from the Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control to the multiple storage cubbies.
The seven seats can be configured in so many ways, with all of them folding at the touch of a button. The class leading cargo space and extra headroom swallow up surf boards, fishing gear, golf clubs and everything else for a great getaway.
TECHNOLOGY BUILT FOR SIMPLICITY
As vehicles evolve, they incorporate more and more technology. For Kia, this doesn’t mean introducing technology for its own sake, everything must have a purpose and enhance the driving or passenger experience.
The new Sorento incorporates the very latest advances in connectivity and infotainment, enhanced by superior ergonomics and a more intuitive user experience. This is technology that anticipates and responds, that seems to think like you do.
SORENTO SOLVES AN AGE-OLD PROBLEM
Gear Changing That's Life Changing
In a segment first, the 2021 Sorento introduces a wet double-clutch 8-speed automatic transmission, combining the smoothness of a traditional hydraulic automatic with the responsiveness and fuel efficiency of a dual clutch system. Whether you are cruising the highway, negotiating rush hour traffic or in the twisty backroads, your Sorento will be as easy going and relaxed or responsive and nimble as you want it to be.
As a further vote of confidence, rated towing capacity has been increased by a massive 25%, together with the addition of the all-new Terrain selector, which sorts out the traction and ride on the least forgiving of surfaces.
