The third-generation Sorento is longer, lower and wider than the previous model thanks to an all-new platform, while an extended wheelbase creates greater room in all three rows of seats. Minutely detailed body and chassis engineering work has resulted in a car which is not only more engaging to drive, but also much more refined to travel in. Safety and convenience technologies new to the Sorento, and in some cases new to any Korean SUV, include Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Around View Monitoring, Adaptive Front Lighting and Speed Limit Information.

Highlights of the extensive standard features include alloy wheels (17”, 18” or 19” depending on grade), black side sill and wheel-arch mouldings, roof rails and a rear spoiler, cornering lights integrated into the fog lights, LED daytime running lights, front wiper de-icers, electrically adjustable, folding and heated door mirrors with LED indicators, door sill scuff plates (aluminium with front illumination for KX-2 upwards)steering wheel-mounted controls, all-round electric windows, cruise control with a speed limiter and reversing sensors, while safety is taken care of by Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Trailer Assist, ABS with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist, six airbags, active front headrests, front seat belt pre-tensioners and load limiters and an active bonnet to protect pedestrians.
