Those with and without experience of modern-day Kias will be impressed by the build quality of the Sorento’s interior. Many will also be surprised by the sheet amount of technology offered as standard. All in all, the interior is a marked improvement over the last model's. Even so, there's still room for the South Korean SUV to improve. For example, the aluminium surrounds of the air vents look a little low-rent, but apart from that everything else you see and touch is high-quality.

Kia Sorento Hybrid dashboard

The Sorento’s dashboard manages to look classy (but perhaps not pretty) and features a good spread of buttons, switches and materials. In the middle of the dashboard there's an infotainment screen and the driver gets a sharp digital display instead of traditional dials.

Equipment, options & accessories

In July 2022, Kia streamlined the Sorento range to a single 'Edition' trim level, replacing the previous 2, 3 and 4 grades in the process. Priced at just under £50,000, this specification includes black exterior styling, 19-inch alloys, a panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, a powered tailgate, remote parking assistance, a 360-degree camera, a premium 12-speaker stereo, wireless phone charging and 10-way (driver) plus eight-way (passenger) power-adjustable front seats.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

Kia’s infotainment systems look nice and are slick enough. Happily, Kia has fitted physical buttons for the climate control under the central touchscreen display, rather than integrating it into the software. Overall, the Sorento's cabin feels like it has been designed with ease of use in mind, which for many will be a real plus. Family buyers will be especially pleased to find there are seven USB ports available.
