ALL-NEW SORENTO WINS ‘LARGE SUV OF THE YEAR’ AT 2021 WHAT CAR? CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Kia’s flagship SUV, the All-New Sorento has made a strong start to the year by picking up ‘Large SUV of the Year’ at the 2021 What Car? Car of the Year Awards.
'Sorento praised for its fuel economy, driving dynamics and well equipped interior'
Up against worthy competition in the Large SUV category, the What Car? judging panel chose the Sorento for its impressive fuel economy, driving dynamics, high levels of standard specification and exceptional build quality.
The variant chosen by the judges at What Car? was the 1.6 T-GDi HEV ‘2’ grade that is available from Ken Brown Kia priced from £38,845. This entry grade of the large SUV is packed full of standard features such as a Reversing Camera System, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist and Forward Collision Avoidance including Pedestrian, Cyclist and Junction detection.
Commenting on the Sorento win, Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? magazine said: “The Sorento's hybrid tech combines good real-world fuel economy with comparatively low CO2 emissions, while the ride is comfortable and the steering accurate. Throw in a nicely made and well-equipped interior, a driving position that’s lofty enough to make HGV drivers jealous and Kia’s unmatched seven-year warranty, and the Sorento is an outstanding all-rounder.”
Paul Rumsby, General Manager at Ken Brown Kia in Harlow and Stevenage commented: “The All-New Sorento is a fantastic customer proposition, offering seven seats as standard backed by the latest hybrid technology and it’s great to see What Car?’s recognition of this with its latest award.
This is the latest in a fast-growing list of accolades Sorento has already picked up, including at the 2021 Carbuyer Best Car Awards where it won ‘Overall Car of the Year’ and ‘Best Large Family Car’.
With online sales always available through our Search, Connect, Collect: Always Available campaign to ensure customers are kept safe and COVID-secure, there’s every reason to get in touch now to find out more about the award-winning Sorento that offers new standards in quality, practicality and equipment.”
