Subtle tweaks can lead to major changes. A millimetre on a brake disc can translate to metres on the road. A few degrees in suspension set-up can mean the difference between hot coffee on your lap or safely in its cup. Steering modified to be more responsive when youâ€™re parking means that your alloy wheels are safe from pavements. This sort of innovative thinking and design is the difference between liking your car or loving the new Sorento.
The aggressive styling on the outside is complemented by a luxurious interior. â€œSoft touchâ€ material on the fascia and centre console means that the Sorento is a more like a velvet fist in an iron glove. Leather upholstery means that the seats are naturally comfortable. But we didnâ€™t stop there; sometimes nature needs some help. Built-in ventilation and heat functionality in the front seats of the AWD model results in maximum comfort at all times. Increased headroom, legroom and cargo capacity leads to a much roomier interior and make the difference between feeling as free as the wind or as battered as a flag.
The new Sorento features a redesigned front grille and bumper, as well as new Daytime Running Lights now positioned above the new HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights. These HID headlights replicate natural lighting by emitting 100 colour rays, which results in is reduced eye fatigue and better visibility at night or during bad weather. Cornering lights attached to the remodelled fog lights light up the path youâ€™re about to take as you turn the wheel. The rear LED combination lights have also been reshaped to give the new Sorento a more sporty and refined look. The extended rear window is larger to allow for better visibility. While the new Sorento takes you forward, you can have a good view of the old technology itâ€™s left behind.
The new Sorento has a long list of features to keep you and your family safe at all times. A Rear Parking Assist System and Rear View Camera are helpful when parking. Should you stretch the new Sorentoâ€™s legs the increased size of the front brake discs is essential to slow down quickly and smoothly. An Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, a Brake Assist System, Cornering Brake Control, Electronic Stability Control, a Traction Control System, Hill-start Assist Control and Roll Over Protection are all standard. If thatâ€™s not enough, the active safety measures on the new Sorento include ISOFIX child seat anchors as well as a 6-airbag system consisting of dual front, side and curtain airbags. Should an accident occur, the active headrests reduce the chance of whiplash, while the high tensile steel body will absorb as much of the impact forces as possible, minimising the chances of injury.
