The all-new 2022 Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid was recently introduced and it is an exciting addition to the Kia lineup. The efficient vehicle is part of the Kia’s “Plan S” electrification strategy of creating 11 EVs by 2026 and expanding its mobility solutions.
“The Sorento PHEV’s rare combination of drivability, efficiency and spaciousness will make it a compelling choice for our customers,” said Sean Yoon, president & CEO of Kia North America and Kia America. “We’re proud to have it join the popular Sorento model range while also playing a pivotal role in the launch of Kia’s Plan S electrification strategy.”
The 2022 Sorento PHEV is available at two trim levels: SX and SX Prestige. Both models come with a turbocharged, 261-horsepower 1.6-liter engine that’s paired with a Full Parallel Hybrid System to offer an EPA-estimated 35 MPG in the city, 33 MPG on the highway, and 79 MPGe. Those are impressive numbers for an SUV and ideal if you’re hoping to be a little more eco-conscious about your carbon footprint.
Additional highlights of the new Sorento PHEV include a large 10.25-inch touch-screen display with navigation, smartphone connectivity via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, eight total USB ports (data and charging) throughout the cabin, a convenient wireless smartphone charger, heated front seats, and a comfortable 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support.
