Sorento PHEV on the road
Easy to see driver information and optimally positioned controls make driving the Sorento PHEV a simple and seamless experience. Power is sent to all four wheels through the six-speed automatic transmission. The transmission allows the full power of the engine and motor to be transferred in parallel, with minimal loss of energy. The result is immediate and powerful acceleration response from any speed as well as direct access to available battery power at higher speeds. Most shorter drives can be completed on all-electric, zero-emissions power.
The Sorento PHEV SUV cabin features a new 12.3-inch fully-digital instrument cluster enabling drivers to easily keep track of battery status in addition to the flow of electric and petrol power through the powertrain. Kia’s innovative UVO Connect telematics system connects drivers by providing helpful information via the in-car touchscreen and on your smartphone. You can easily locate vehicle charging points, parking spaces and points of interest and access live traffic and weather updates on-the-go.
