FROM THE BIG CITY
With its impressive on-road performance and its traditional off-road capabilities, the Sorento gives you the best of both
worlds. This is an all-round SUV with a broad appeal due to its sophisticated comfort and style. This means it can handle
the rough on the outside, but the inside boasts the smoothness and refinement of a world-class automobile.

THE POWER TO SURPRISETM
Kia Motors Corporation - a maker of quality vehicles for the young-at-heart - was founded in 1944 and is Korea’s oldest manufacturer of motor
vehicles. Over 2.1 million vehicles a year are produced in 13 manufacturing and assembly operations in eight countries which are then sold and
serviced through a network of distributors and dealers covering 172 countries. Kia has over 44 000 employees worldwide and annual revenues
of over US$20 billion. It is the major sponsor of the Australian Open and an official automotive partner of FIFA - the governing body of the FIFA
World Cup™. Kia Motors Corporation’s brand slogan - “The Power to Surprise™ ” - represents the company’s global commitment to surpassing
customer expectations through continuous automotive innovation.
DESIGN CONCEPT
“The Sorento is based on Kia’s design DNA and design philosophy: The simplicity of a straight line. The shape of the all-new Sorento is pure
and modern - almost like being carved out of a solid block. At the front, you will find the most powerful interpretation of our new Kia family
face. Our signature grille in combination with huge air intakes and the slim wrap-around headlights creates the remarkable face of the Sorento.
A face that enables this modern, dynamic SUV to ‘stand out from the crowd’. The Sorento adopts simple, linear lines to create a powerful yet
polished appearance.” - Peter Schreyer: Chief Design Officer, KIA Motors Corporation
So you value sustainable living? We do too. That’s why we take pride in rising to meet the expectations and challenges of the 21st century
while making tangible contributions to the preservation of the environment and sustainable development of society. Kia is actively developing
state-of-the-art eco-friendly vehicles for future commercialisation, meeting prevailing consumer demand for fuel-efficient and compact vehicles.
Kia’s new EcoDynamics brand, which refers to the most eco-friendly vehicles within each Kia model range, has recently been introduced with
innovative fuel-stretching and emissions-cutting technologies. Kia’s first commercially sold hybrid, the Cerato LPG Hybrid, was introduced
into the Korean market in July 2009. The new Sorento Hybrid, designed for testing, is powered by an all-new powertrain with Kia’s new
U2 1.6 litre diesel engine fitted with twin turbo-chargers to generate more than 120kW of power. The Eco Dynamics vehicles will feature Idle
Stop & Go (ISG) technology to automatically switch off the engine when stationary and then restart, thereby reducing CO2 emissions by
119g/km and fuel consumption by up to 15%.
EXTERIOR STYLING
The Sorento brings sleek styling and substance to the world of the urban SUV. The Sorento’s unique front mask is both futuristic and robust from the linear design of the grille and headlights to the mesh-type fog lamps, with its aggressive wide bumper. The side profile of the Sorento
is stylish with eye-catching side mouldings and dynamic wheel arches. The side character line has been lowered to create a “flying wing” side
moulding for a sporty and aerodynamic shape. Various design applications like the extended rear window and large rear lights give the Sorento
a wider appearance and a highly functional and full-bodied look. The Sorento comes standard with either 17-inch alloy wheels on the 5-seater
package or 18-inch alloy wheels on the 7-seater package, both designs portraying a large appearance and sporty posture. The enhanced size
of both the tailgate and rear ensure better visibility, promote stability and project a powerful stance.

please consult your nearest Kia dealership.
INTERIOR
Retaining the luxury exuded in most SUVs, the Sorento’s driver
space is an area of high functionality and sophistication with its
thoroughly modern, futuristic and stylish trimmings. The familiar
Kia-style Supervision Cluster is complemented by 3D effects and
illumination. The high-tech centre fascia features Kia’s Design
Identity - an ergonomic layout and sporty illumination of the
audio character line. The parallel arrangement of the gear lever
and cup holders creates more space, especially in the console.
Extending in a linear fashion from the crash pad, the door trim
features an elegant grip handle and overall finish.
The Sorento features a Start/Stop Button with Smart Key*
on the automatic model, which releases the steering lock and
activates the ignition electronically without inserting the key
when pressed. As a safety precaution the key must be in the
vehicle to start the engine. The multimedia capabilities of the
Sorento include a high-tech audio system (subwoofer/amplifier
on 7-seater), with audio remote controls (with Bluetooth),
and MP3/iPod/USB connectivity.The Sorento features a fully
automatic dual climate control system with built-in air filter,
reducing harmful radicals and odours as well as cruise control.
Interior trim is standard with black one-tone leather seats, except for the Muscle Beige exterior colour, which is fitted with a Splendour
Beige two-tone interior. Further convenience is offered with the choice of a 5-seater or 7-seater. The 5-seater layout allows for more cargo
space, while the 7-seater layout is competitively spacious while accommodating more passengers and interior arrangements. The driver’s
power seat allows for customised mobility with a power lever that allows one-touch 8-way seating adjustments. Even more attention to
detail is given to the 7-seater through its heated front seats, driver seat ventilation and driver pedals finished with aluminium trim.
The 7-seater package features a Self Levelling
Suspension System,
System which allows the vehicle height to
be adjusted depending on the number of passengers
and luggage weight to improve stability whilst driving.
New high-performance dampers minimise body
vibration and booming to give you a more luxurious
ride than ever before. A Rear Parking Assist System
(RPAS) and a Rear View Camera* protect against
accidents when reversing.

PERFORMANCE
With a choice of either manual or automatic transmission on the diesel models and automatic transmission
only on the petrol model, the Sorento caters for all lifestyles and driving needs. The Sorento is available in
either a 2.2 litre diesel engine featuring an E-VGT (Electrical Variable Geometry Turbocharger), or a 3.5 litre
V6 petrol engine featuring CVVT (Continuous Variable Valve Timing), both for better acceleration and fuel
efficiency. The 2.2 litre diesel engine is a third generation common rail direct injection system that provides
optimised control of the amount and timing of fuel injection through the ECU into the combustion engine
chambers based on engine and driving conditions, thereby minimising gas emissions and resulting in high
power and less noise.
As a result of the lighter weight, low compression ratio and advanced Piezio injector, this enhanced engine
offers higher fuel injection equipment pressure (1 600-1 800 bar), increased power output, and better fuel
economy. The 2.2 litre diesel engine produces 146.9kW of power @ 3 800rpm and a torque of 421.7Nm
@ 1 800-2 500rpm for the manual transmission and 436.4Nm @ 1 800-2 500rpm for the automatic
transmission, whilst complying with Euro4 emission standards. The 3.5 litre petrol engine produces 206.6kW
of power @ 6 300rpm and a torque of 335.4Nm @ 5 000rpm.
The Sorento features a 6-speed gearbox for excellent acceleration, higher torque capacity and smooth, fuelefficient gear changes. Driving performance is further optimised by actively distributing the driving force to
front and rear wheels depending on road and driving conditions with the electronic AWD system.*
*Selected 2.2 diesel models only
SAFETY
The Sorento’s active safety devices feature the latest in steering and braking
technology, while drivers can enjoy peace of mind with the high-tech passive
safety equipment. The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system is fully
automatic and improves stability under heavy braking, restores directional
control during potential skids, enhances grip in wet conditions and ensures
superior traction during hard acceleration. Downhill Brake Control (DBC) is an
advanced supplement to the ESC system, keeping the vehicle at a constant
speed when braking downhill. Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) works with the ESC
system to prevent rollback when the brakes are initiated while driving uphill.
For maximum stopping power, the Sorento is equipped with an All-Disc Braking System that has been made more effective with an Anti-lock
Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
(EBD). With a 6-airbag system, consisting of dual front, side and full-length curtain
airbags, complemented by Active Headrests, everyone in the Sorento is protected. The Active Headrests automatically cradle the head in the
event of a collision to prevent or minimise whiplash injury. ISOFIX child seat anchors on all models give additional peace of mind to young families.
