2022 Kia Sorento Hybrid for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims, Hybrid System and Range
The 2022 Sorento Hybrid is a three-row, six-passenger SUV that’s offered in S and EX trim levels. The vehicle’s strong hybrid powertrain is made up of a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor linked to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The total system output is 227 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Although front-wheel drive is standard on the S, all-wheel drive – which is standard on the EX – is optional. The ’22 Sorento Hybrid’s maximum towing capacity is 2,000 pounds. Since this is a hybrid, fuel economy will certainly be on the minds of potential buyers, who will be happy to hear that the EPA estimates 39 mpg city/35 mpg highway for the FWD S trim, while both AWD versions achieve 36 city/33 highway.
Some of the base S’s standout convenience features are automatic LED headlights, low-profile roof rails, heated side mirrors with integrated LED turn-signal indicators, a medley of USB ports (one for data and seven for charging), two 12-volt power outlets, one-touch sliding and folding second-row captain’s chairs, and 50/50-split reclining third-row seats. The S also gets Smart Key (lets you lock/unlock the door without the key fob in hand), remote and push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, synthetic leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats. As the most luxurious trim, the EX pampers its occupants with LED fog lights, a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, and a wireless phone charger.
Active Safety and Multimedia Technologies
A good number of state-of-the-art safety technologies are installed in the ’22 Sorento Hybrid. Even the base-level S has automatic high beams, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, intelligent speed limit assist, driver attention warning with leading vehicle departure alert, rear parking sensors, rear occupant alert, and safe exit assist. The higher-priced EX also gets junction-turning detection, navigation-based adaptive cruise control, highway driving assist, and front parking sensors.
Both trims get the same version of the Kia Connect multimedia system, which can be controlled using either its 10.25-inch touchscreen or voice recognition. It also has navigation, Bluetooth wireless technology, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), a six-speaker sound system, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
