Kia Sorento GT Update

2017-kia-sorento-gt- The multi-award winning Kia Sorento has added yet another level of style and refinement to the line-up with the arrival of the GT-Line for the 2017 model range.


Sitting above the luxury Platinum specification, the new GT-Line brings an all-new sporty feel to the big SUV with the addition of Autonomous Emergency Braking, 19-inch chrome wheels, stainless steel side steps, red brake calipers, red leather trim, paddle shifters, LED ice cube fog lamps, chrome accented interior and GT-Line badging.


The GT-Line Sorento comes with all the premium equipment of the Platinum trim plus its own specific features with 6-speed automatic gearbox coupled to the proven 2.2-litre diesel for only $58,490 plus on-road costs.

For the remainder of the Sorento MY17 range there have been some minor interior refreshes and LED Daytime Running Lights have been added to the Si and SLi grades to make the recognized safety feature standard across the model range. There is no price change to the Si and SLi models in neither petrol nor diesel.


The major change for the Platinum grade is the addition of the AEB. The price for the Platinum Sorento has risen $600 to $56,590.

Since being launched in 2015, the UM Sorento has won a couple of OzRoamer Car Of The Year  awards and is on the consideration list of most canny buyers.


Apart from the car’s performance and luxury credentials it also benefits from Kia’s industry-leading 7-year warranty, 7-year capped price service and 7-year roadside assist programs.
