Mathieu, a reader of Car Guide, recently acquired the new Kia Sorento 2021.
Wanting to know our opinion on this vehicle, he sent us a request to get our impressions. Antoine Joubert therefore lent himself to the exercise as part of this new capsule. In Studio.
“I have no choice but to admit having been a little disappointed by the product”, analyzes the columnist of the Car guide. If the interior layout is impeccable, the choice of engine seems to be a disappointment for Antoine. It should be noted that the V6 engine formerly offered as an option with the Sorento has been discontinued.
A turbocharged four-cylinder engine is now available, producing 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. However, towing capacity is limited to 3,500 pounds, compared to 5,000 pounds with the older V6 engine. Antoine Joubert also noted a fairly major irritant related to the automatic engine stop / start system.
