Kia Sorento Radio Review

Kia SorentoKia Sorento – Kia have launched a new model of its large SUV the Sorento, that has a more distinctive look inside and out.

Currently with a 2.2 litre diesel, but a V6 petrol model is coming soon.

The diesel has an 8-speed wet dual clutch transmission.

Kias have some great features but the top spec Sorento goes further. On the GT-line if you put the left-hand blinker on, the speedo on the left of the dash changes to a camera view of the left-hand blind spot and similarly with the right-hand blinker the tacho on the right changes to a view of the right-hand blind spot.

The petrol version will start at nearly $46,000, it’s an extra $3,000 for the diesel. The top of the line diesel is $63,000 plus on roads which currently are not as dear as many other brands.
