The best of both worlds; the all-new Sorento is getting a hybrid option

Kia’s new, large SUV will soon be even more impressive; say hi to the all-new Kia Sorento Hybrid. Taking the pinnacle of Kia’s range and adding electrification has only made the largest and most luxurious model in the range even more tempting. With a huge interior, a bold new exterior look and technology to make driving a doddle, the all-new Kia Sorento has already impressed the motoring world, so a hybrid version is guaranteed to get noticed.

But not only that, an all-new Kia Sorento Plugin-Hybrid is also expected to be added to the Sorento line-up n the near future offering customers a generous choice of petrol, diesel, hybrid or plug-in hybrid models. To be kept up to date with the very latest about the all-new Sorento range, be sure to register your interest.

Kia have been on a roll with their model releases over the past couple of years adding more and more hybrids and fully-electric models across their range. With small crossover models such as the Kia Niro Hybrid and All-New XCeed Hybrid offering great flexibility around urban settings and the mid-size Sportage Hybrid being a great all-rounder, Kia have rounded-out their hybrid range with a large-SUV in the shape of the Sorento Hybrid.

Branded the ‘Smartstream’ power trains, the Kia Sorento Hybrid pairs a 1.6 litres T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine with a 44.2kW electric motor. Power is fed to the motors via a 1.49kWh lithium-ion polymer battery that sits low on the car’s chassis meaning no interior space is lost in the cabin. The result is reduced emissions, improved efficiency (we’ll be getting the official figures soon, so stay tuned) and a power output of 230ps and 350 Nm of torque. That’s plenty for the Sorento Hybrid to accelerate effortlessly and provide much needed pulling power when loaded with cargo, or indeed towing a trailer or caravan.
