Russian Kia Sorento has become more expensive and added to the passability after the update


KIA continues to update the Russian ruler — following families

However, the equipment is revised: three new versions are added — the LUXE and Prestige configuration can be ordered with Turbodiesel 2.2 CRDI (199 forces, 440 nm), and the execution of Premium is now available even with the basic 2.5-liter «atmospheric» (180 forces, 225 nm ). Ruler

Since October, even poor Sorento versions have become «packaged» better — in the unpopular «advertising» set of Classic (available only with the front-wheel drive at a price of 2.5 million rubles), no additional charges of windshield heating and glasswater nozzles, and multimediasystem with 8-inch Tachkrin (optional versions of Classic, Comfort and Luxe) learned to a wireless connection to Apple CarPlay and Android AUTO protocols.

Three top versions of Sorento with a 10.25-inch touchscreen of the information and entertainment complex received the Kia Connect factory telematic system, which is already on passenger models. In addition, the prestige crossovers received an extended set of electronic systems — adaptive cruise control with automatic braking, a strip control system and smart surgery of surcharges do not require.

Buyers of the most expensive Sorento Premium + will have the opportunity to choose the skin of Nappa in the cabin (black or brown), and aluminum lining has been added on the pedals. In addition, KIA has prepared for top sorento (Premium and Premium +) upgraded front brake discs of increased diameter. It is curious that the size of the brake mechanisms depends on the configuration, and not from the engine power.

Another technical upgrade is the possibility of forced locking the rear axle connection clutch on 2.5 liter SORENTO. While the basic gasoline engine choose most of the buyers, and for them, the increase in the passability will be by the way.

The update increased prices for 20-200 thousand rubles, and for the year recommended retail prices increased by at least 350 thousand rubles or 16%. In conditions of deficiency of microchips, dealers are not shy to impose additional equipment, so in reality is cheaper than three million rubles a new Kia Sorento not to buy, and the sough in a rich configuration will cost at least half a million more expensive.
