All new Sorento models are available with Kia’s advanced EcoDynamics technology. This fuel-stretching Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) technology can help save up to 12% more fuel and reduce your carbon footprint – simply by cutting the vehicle’s engine off whenever the car is stationary. When you come to a stop, select neutral and remove your foot from the clutch and the engine will re-start instantly. All elements work together to create what we call ‘EcoDynamics’. Clever stuff!
This means reduced fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions – from just 149 g/km on the ‘KX-1’ 2.2. litre CRDi (diesel) engine which saves you money and helps the environment too.and helps
Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) technology
The All-New Sorento features a maximum towing capacity of 2,500kg (transmission dependent) and makes light work of pulling anything from trailers to caravans, or even a horsebox. The ‘KX-2’ upwards feature self-levelling suspension amongst their standard specification.

This is also used to assist when towing trailers, keeping the vehicle level despite the additional weight of the trailer/caravan.
Inspired by rugged terrain, the All-New Sorento’s All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) technology is designed to make everyday driving more comfortable. All-Wheel-Drive means in normal driving conditions, the vehicle remains in standard 2WD mode to boost fuel economy but faced with more adverse weather conditions, the AWD system anticipates the need for greater traction and automatically engages. The innovative, continuously active AWD ensures the All-New Sorento maintains excellent traction on rough, loose or slippery surfaces and helps improve lateral stability when cornering. the environment too.
