The company announced a price list for the UK market, where the new car will cost starting from $50,000 or £38,845. At first, there will be three configuration levels available: they are called very simply: 2, 3 and 4.

The main powertrain of the new Sorento is a Smartstream hybrid unit, consisting of a 1.6-liter turbo petrol engine, a 60-hp electric motor, and a small 1.49-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. A total power output of the unit is 226 hp and 265 Nm. It provides a rather large SUV with quite good dynamics: it accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 8.7.

The configuration #3 is available with a 2.2-liter turbo diesel CRDi that produces 199 hp and 440 Nm. In terms of acceleration dynamics, it is only slightly inferior to the hybrid Sorento, but it is more efficient, thus consuming 6.7 liters per 100 km in a mixed cycle. The hybrid has a declared fuel consumption of 6.9 liters.

The standard package includes LED headlights and taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats and steering wheel, a dual-zone climate control, a 12.3-inch digital cockpit, an 8-inch infotainment system, smartphone integration, and a set of security systems.

The Kia Sorento with the configuration #3 features a glossy black radiator grille, chrome plated door handles, and 19-inch wheels. There are black leather upholstery, 8-way adjustable power front seats, heated rear seats, UVO Connect (advanced navigation capabilities, the user's smartphone support, and so on), a keyless entry system, a powered trunk lid, and several other functions. This configuration costs about $53,950.

The top-end Kia Sorento already costs $61,405. It is available with black Nappa leather, black ceiling trim, a 10-way adjustable driver's seat with memory function, ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a projection display, Bose acoustics and an expanded set of safety systems. In particular, it includes a viewing system using wide-angle cameras, the image from which can be transmitted directly to the dashboard (for example, when changing lane).

This will minimize the number of so-called blind spots and increase safety. All offered configurations will occupy 7 passengers.

It is worth noting that the plug-in hybrid will be released later but also this year.

By the way, the new Kia Sorento for the German market is estimated at $48,600.
