When the Kia Sorento was launched more than 20 years ago, we doubt anyone was thinking of a hybrid version of it down the line. Yet, here we are with the 2024 Kia Sorento Hybrid capturing hearts once again, but for new reasons.
If you’re looking for Kia cars, Carolina Kia of High Point is one of the highest-rated car dealerships in all of North Carolina. Even if you’re looking for a 2024 Kia Sorento for sale in High Point and the surrounding areas (instead of the hybrid version), we’re sure we can get you a phenomenal deal on one.
Below, we’ll tell you all about what’s got us excited about the hybrid version of the Sorento, and why it might be one of the best SUVs of the year.
Just like the other Sorento, this one’s a mid-size SUV. But don’t let the “mid-size” tag fool you. With three-row seating, you can get the whole crew riding with you for all your trips.
If you’re looking for a head-to-head comparison with other SUVs, think of a Toyota Highlander Hybrid, a Ford Explorer Hybrid, or a Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid.
There’s a lot of reasons why people feel more comfortable with hybrids over gas-powered cars or EVs:
Hybrids are a middle ground between gas-powered vehicles and EVs in a way that they combine convenience with practicality. They’re better for the environment while giving you the option to switch powertrains when you need to.
Because hybrids use a combination of electric motors and regular gas engines, you can automatically go further for less with a hybrid.
Besides big gas savings compared to the classic platforms, there are more hybrid options on the market compared to EVs. As of now, drivers just see hybrids as a more practical option.
The exterior features a redone front grille compared to the previous version of the Sorento. Along with it, we now have sleek, stylish head and tail lights, along with a sportier look that seems to be the trend across all new Kia cars.
The Sorento Hybrid has a 1.6L engine at its heart combined with an electric motor to generate 227 hp and 258 lb. ft. of torque. In terms of fuel economy, you can expect an EPA-estimated 35 MPG on the highway, which should lead to a rough driving range of over 600 miles with the FWD trim.
There are two trims:
The new Kia Sorento Hybrid is a stylish and capable SUV that offers a great blend of comfort and convenience features. The powertrain is powered by a 1.6L turbo hybrid engine that produces 227hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and comes with 17-inch alloy wheels. The SUV also has a smart power tailgate, LED headlights, roof rails, and 6-passenger seating with 2nd-row captain’s chairs.
The interior features SynTex seat trim with heated front seats, power driver and passenger seats, and dual-zone auto climate control. For convenience, there are 8 USB chargers, front and rear parking sensors, and smart cruise control with stop & go. The Kia Sorento Hybrid is also available with a panoramic sunroof and power sunshade.
So whether you’re looking for a stylish and capable SUV with great features or just want a reliable and efficient hybrid, the new Kia Sorento Hybrid is definitely worth considering.
