A year on from its local launch, Kia Australia has today announced availability of the updated-for-2011 Sorento SUV.
Strictly a feature and trim update, the 2011 Sorento gets Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and media streaming as standard equipment, from the entry Si to the top-shelf Platinum grade.
A 'headlamp escort' function has also been added, the low-beam headlights illuminating the ground in front of the car at night after being switched off, lighting the path ahead for occupants.
The up-spec SLi and range-topping Platinum models get upgraded in-mirror screens for the rear-view camera, offering a higher-resolution image and parking guide lines.
The top two models also benefit from a new leather wrap for the instrument cluster housing, along with automatic up/down functions for the passenger power window.
The Platinum's panoramic sunroof is now alarmed, activated when the car's engine is switched off and the driver's door is opened.
Recommended Retail Pricing for the Sorento Si remains unchanged with the 2WD automatic, 2.4 litre petrol staying at $36,490. Similarly, its 2.2-litre diesel counterparts in manual and automatic also remain unchanged at $39,990 and $41,990 respectively.
The 2.2-litre diesel automatic SLi and Platinum models get the announced upgraded feature list for an additional $200, making the new recommended retail prices $46,190 and $49,190 respectively.
