Building on the successful 'KX-3' top-of-the-range trim level, the new Kia Sorento 'KX-3 Sat-Nav' adds an integrated satellite navigation system, an uprated Hi-Fi and a colour reversing camera system to the specification of Kia's flagship SUV.
The 'KX-3 Sat-Nav' is available in All Wheel Drive with a 2.2 CRDi engine and a choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmissions.
Featuring a 6.5" colour touch-screen, the fully-integrated satellite navigation system offers European mapping, motorway junction views, lane guidance, speed limit warnings, multi-route planning (Fast, Short, Eco) and tour planners. There is also easy access to a 'Parking Location' function.
The audio performance has been substantially upgraded with the addition of an external amplifier and a subwoofer to the standard 6-speaker set-up. The touch screen unit is used to control the audio system as well as the Bluetooth functionality - the contact directories of up to eight mobile phones can be controlled from the screen.
The final piece of extra equipment on this new version is an advanced reversing camera which offers a colour view of any obstacles to the rear of the car when reverse gear is selected. The image is displayed on the 6.5" touch screen display. A similar system is also available on the new Kia Sportage crossover and certain versions of the Kia Soul urban-crossover.
Available to order now, the Kia Sorento 'KX-3 Sat-Nav' Manual and 'KX-3 Sat-Nav' Automatic versions are both rated insurance group 30 and priced at £31,155 OTR and £32,635 OTR respectively (including VAT at the new 20% rate).Published 1 December 2010
