CAR OF THE WEEK

The new seven seater in town that’s got everyone talking. The all new MQ4 Sorento which was just released a little over two months ago promotes bold styling as well as refined lineage and of course the signature tiger nose grill. A car that would stop you in your tracks and make you ponder “is that a range rover?” but no, and please don’t be mistaken by the sharper, more assertive looks because this is the all new Kia Sorento.

An SUV that is designed for stylish family outings as well as dominance on the road, there is a model to suit everyone in the range. The Sorento comes in two engine variants which gives you the choice of a rugged yet smooth 8 speed, 2.2 litre diesel DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) providing 148kw and 440Nm of torque in an AWD (All Wheel Drive). The fuel consumption on the diesel variant you’re looking at is a crazy 6.1L per 100Km’s combined fuel consumption meaning you get very close to nearly 1000kms per tank (this is coming from personal experience and of course dependent on how you drive the vehicle). The petrol is yet to be released in Australia but we should see it in the coming months and that will advocate a 3.5 litre V6 FWD (Front wheel drive). We are still waiting on all specifications for this model and I will touch on this when it does become available in Australia but with the success of the model selling out Australia wide I can definitely vouch the diesel has been a major hit! I can even tell you that people whom have never considered purchasing a diesel car in there life have test driven one and left a deposit with me right after!

The Sorento does also flaunt all the safety and tech you need as standard! The entry level model comes equipped with AEB (Autonomous Emergency Breaking) for all cars, pedestrians and cyclists and well as junction assist and multi collision breaking which means you are protected from all front collisions and secondary collisions. It also comes standard with Blind spot collision warnings, Rear cross traffic collision avoidance, Lane keep assistance, Driver Attention Alert and Advanced Smart cruise control for those who are on the road a lot.

The Sorento S (Entry Level) is also standard with Bluetooth, Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

So with the Sorento entry level coming standard with so much how can you add more?

Well as you move up into the Sport, Sport Plus and GT variants you get a 10.25 Inch touchscreen display, satellite navigation, Dual zone climate control, 18 inch machined finished alloy wheels and a 10 way power drivers seat in just the second model above! The Sport plus picks up a Smart key with push button start and smart remote start as well as full leather appointed seats, heated first row seating, a heated steering wheel and 19 inch rims. And well the GT… oh the GT – line, is a model you will fall head over heels for. The Gt – Line grabs your attention with a massive 12.6 inch digital Cluster display, 8 inch heads up display, Blind spot view monitors (Which is a camera view of your blind spot on your cluster display), Remote Smart parking assist (YES this car can park itself in tight spots), quilted Nappa leather, ventilated (or cooling) first row seating, 360 camera views, interior mood lighting (for your inner party animal), Panoramic Sunroof, Wireless phone charging and an amazing 12 speaker premium BOSE stereo system as well as 20 Inch dark chrome rims and much, much more.

The Diesel models are currently on a driveaway campaign this month ranging from $50,290.00 Drive Away to $65,290.00 Drive away for the Gt-line which presents absolutely exceptional value comparing to its competitors on the market!

If you are not convinced yet, come and see one for yourself! Come in and let the test drive speak for itself as I can guarantee you, your friends and family will be jealous you bought one!
