Kia Sorento now with satellite navigation

Sales of 4×4 cars are growing in the UK during the winter months, and the Sorento now features satellite navigation and other equipment to cope with the ice and snow.

The new satellite navigation boasts a 6.5" colour touch-screen with European maps, speed limit warnings and even offers the driver a choice of routes from fast, short or eco.

In addition, the screen doubles as a reverse parking camera screen as seen on the Soul crossover and Sportage SUV crossover.

Kia has also added an uprated HI-Fi with an external amplifier and a subwoofer to the standard six-speaker sound system in range-topping Sorento models.

The third function of the touch screen allows the audio system to be used and Bluetooth connectivity to be accessed.

The updated, equipment-heavy Sorento KX-3 Sat-Nav is available with all-wheel drive and Kia’s 2.2 CRDi engine. A choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission is available with the SUV.

It also comes with five-star EuroNCAP rating and is fully equipped with front and side airbags as well as stability control.

Prices for the Kia Sorento KX-3 Sat-Nav start from £31,155 for the manual version and £32,635 for the automatic version.

Alternatively, stripped-down versions of the Sorento cost from £22,500, making it one of the more affordable 4×4 SUVs on the market today.

The Kia Sorento is one of two all-wheel drive cars in the Kia range after the introduction of the Kia Sportage SUV crossover, which is offered in both two- and four-wheel drive versions.

The Sportage was launched this year and is the second crossover vehicle in the Kia range alongside the smaller Kia Soul.
