  • Sorento wins ‘Best large family car’
  • The seven-seat SUV was lauded for being both desirable and sensible
  • Judges impressed by its family-friendly touches, roomy and well-made cabin

The all-new Kia Sorento, available from Speedwell Kia has won ‘Best large family car’ at the Parkers New Car Awards 2022.

The awards, now in its fifth year, seek to find the best cars on sale today. Judges praised the Sorento for its desirable yet sensible nature, along with its capable mix of technology and practicality.

Keith Adams, Editor at Parkers said: “Kia is on a roll right now, with all of its models oozing with desirability as well as appealing to those who love a sensible car. The Sorento is one of those cars that earns your respect thanks to its value, space and technology clothed in a smart body that disguises its bulk. Where it really impresses is in the sheer number of clever and family-friendly touches, such as its profusion of USB ports, a blind-spot camera that really works and its roomy and well-made cabin. All those rational features make it a truly desirable large family car.”

The Sorento SUV is available with all-wheel drive as standard and a range of engines to offer versatility with hybrid, plug-in hybrid and diesel power available. Each of these comes with seven seats as standard and a five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rating, making the Sorento the ideal companion for families or business users who need that extra bit of space.

Starting from £39,360, the Sorento and Sorento Plug-in Hybrid are available with highly specified ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘4’ grades, all backed by Kia’s seven-year/100,000 mile warranty.

Since launching in late 2020, the all-new Sorento has picked up numerous awards from highly coveted publications including What Car? and Carbuyer’s ‘Car of the Year’, in addition to numerous ‘Best Large SUV’ category wins and even a Red Dot design award.
