2024 Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid

Kia is gearing up for the future with the announcement of the 2024 Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV). While maintaining the core features that have made the Sorento PHEV a standout in its class, the 2024 model introduces subtle changes and enhancements, making it an even more compelling option for environmentally conscious drivers seeking a blend of efficiency, style, and advanced safety features.

Exterior and Interior Updates:

The most noticeable change for the 2024 Kia Sorento PHEV is the exclusion of the Runway Red exterior paint option. However, Kia compensates for this by introducing the Gravity Blue paint color, which can now be paired with the all-new Navy interior color pack. The Navy interior color pack adds a touch of sophistication with Navy perforated leather trim, complemented by a distinctive blue accent on the steering wheel. The transition from a black headliner to a gray headliner completes the cohesive and refined interior design, creating a departure from the previous year’s model.

Engine Performance and Efficiency:

Under the hood, the 2024 Kia Sorento PHEV continues to impress, featuring a 1.6T Gas Direct Injection (GDI) I-4 engine paired with a 66.9 kW motor and a 6-speed automatic transmission. This dynamic duo delivers a robust 261 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, ensuring a powerful and efficient driving experience.

In terms of fuel efficiency, the Sorento PHEV stands out with an EPA-estimated 34 MPG combined for gas and an impressive 79 MPGe combined when utilizing electric power. This impressive efficiency is ideal for drivers looking to minimize their environmental impact without compromising on performance.

Comprehensive Safety Features:

One of the standout features of the 2024 Kia Sorento PHEV is its commitment to safety. In the SX-P trim, Kia provides a comprehensive suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). These include Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear (BCA-R) with Parallel Exit, Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Forward Collision Avoidance Assist-Junction Turning (FCA-JT), Highway Driving Assist (HDA), and more.

The Sorento PHEV ensures a safe and confident driving experience with Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), Parking Distance Warning-Forward & Reverse (PDW-R) with an off switch, Safe Exit Assist (SEW), and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist (RCCA). These features collectively make the Sorento PHEV one of the safest three-row PHEV SUVs in its class.

Dimensions and Pricing:

With an overall length of 189.0 inches, width of 74.8 inches, and height of 66.7 inches, the Sorento PHEV boasts a spacious and comfortable interior. The wheelbase of 110.8 inches contributes to its stable and well-balanced driving dynamics.

Pricing for the 2024 Kia Sorento PHEV starts at an MSRP of $49,990, excluding the $1,325 destination charge. This places the Sorento PHEV in a competitive position, offering a well-rounded package of performance, efficiency, and safety at an accessible price point.

The 2024 Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid continues to impress with its stylish design, powerful performance, and advanced safety features. The subtle updates to color options and interior trims enhance the overall aesthetic appeal, making it an attractive option for consumers seeking a sophisticated and eco-friendly SUV.
