‘Edition’ is now the only specification the seven-seat Kia Sorento is offered in

Kia UK is simplifying the line-up of its seven-seat Sorento Sport Utility Vehicle with the introduction of a single-option trim called ‘Edition’.

Pre-orders for the freshest derivative – which replaces the out-going entry-level ‘2’, mid-range ‘3’ and bells and whistles ‘4’ grades – will open later this month, with “indicative pricing” starting from £49,495.

Available with petrol, petrol-electric and diesel engines, the new model is available in ‘White Pearl’, ‘Graphite’ and ‘Midnight Black’ paint finishes and packs in an extensive standard equipment list.

All models sport black exterior styling “to bring a bold new image to the Sorento” and includes front grille trim, mirror caps, roof rails and side window trim all finished in black. In addition, diesel models gain 20-inch black alloy wheels, while hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions ride on smaller 19-inch rims.

Building on the outgoing top-spec ‘4’ grade, ‘Edition’ “features the highest levels of equipment ever seen on Sorento” meaning, as standard, they get a panoramic sunroof and power-assisted tail-gate.

Inside, a customisable head-up display, a 360-degree Around View parking system, a 12-speaker premium Bose surround sound system, wireless mobile phone charging, power adjustable heated and cooled front driver and front passenger seats, and outer rear heated seats are among the creature comforts.

A Kia UK spokesperson said: “The ‘Edition’ specification ensures a desirable and modern vehicle, tailored to the needs of UK customers, while streamlining the production and delivery process of this highly sought-after Sport Utility Vehicle.

“The three efficient and modern powertrain options remain, comprising hybrid, plug-in hybrid and diesel, catering to varying customer needs and driving patterns.

“The Sorento is a core part of Kia’s electrified Eco range, comprising 10 models that feature hybrid, plug-in hybrid or electric power. Between them, these models account for more than one in three cars sold for the brand so far this year, further cementing Kia as a leader in electrification,” they added.
