Kia Sorento Platinum gets autonomous emergency braking
Kia has added autonomous emergency braking to its Sorento Platinum SUV and rolled out a GT-Line grade.
KIA HAS ADDED autonomous emergency braking (AEB) to its Sorento Platinum variant with the list price for that model rising $600 to $56,590+ORC. This is good news as the Sorento is up against models costing less with the same safety features.
Kia has also announced the addition of a GT-Line variant (interior pictured below) to the Sorento line-up which lists from $58,490+ORC and takes over as the top-spec variant. The GT-Line model adds to the Platinum spec and obviously now also includes autonomous emergency braking, 19-inch chrome wheels, stainless steel side steps, red brake calipers, red leather trim, paddle shifters, LED ice cube fog lamps, chrome accented interior and GT-Line badging. It runs a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Throughout the Sorento range, updates for 2017 model year cars include LED Daytime Running Lights on Si and SLi grades. There is no price change to the Si and SLi models in either petrol nor diesel.
The Sorento also comes with Kia’s industry-leading 7-year warranty, 7-year capped price service and 7-year roadside assist programs.
