The seven-seater Kia Sorento is the largest SUV you can buy from Naza Kia Malaysia, the official distributors of Kia vehicles in Malaysia. It is offered in four variants, with prices starting at RM155,888 for the base 2.2 LS diesel and rivals large SUVs like the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Sorento is locally-assembled at Naza Kia's plant in Gurun, Kedah.
There are two engine options offered for the Malaysian-spec Sorento. Powering the entry level diesel variant is a 2.2-litre R CRDi turbocharged four-cylinder mill that pumps out 200hp and 441Nm of torque, while the petrol variants get Kia's familiar naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre Theta II unit that outputs 172hp at 6,000rpm and 224Nm of torque at 4,000rpm.
All variants get a six-speed conventional automatic transmission as standard and power is transferred to all four corners via the carmaker's new Dynamax all-wheel-drive system.
The latest HS Diesel gets plenty of goodies, such as fog lamps with cornering function, leather upholstery, 7-inch multi-info display, touch-screen infotainment with six speakers audio output, powered tailgate, roof rack, 19-inch wheels and powered front seats.
