Kia Sorento 'Best Car for Towing'
Added: 07 July 2020
The Kia Sorento SUV has been named as the Best Car for Towing by Auto Trader in its New Cars Awards 2020.
The seven-seat Sorento topped its category by excelling in all the requirements for a tow car, based on over 181,000 car owners surveyed. Vehicles were judged on 16 separate features, including stability, reliability, safety and technology.
Erin Baker, Editorial Director at Auto Trader, commented: “The Kia Sorento is a great-value, good-looking, large SUV, which offers easy driving and a generous amount of kit on board. Congratulations to Kia on an excellent win.”
The Sorento is Kia’s largest SUV that has executive-class space and versatility to match its premium styling, quality and refinement. All versions of the family-friendly Sorento are powered by a 197bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine with intelligent four-wheel-drive. The top-of-the-range ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’ versions also boast an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Simon Heatherington, Commercial Director of Kia Motors (UK), added: “We’re delighted to see the Sorento win this award, particularly since the Sportage was also named Best Car for Towing the year before.
“It goes to show that our customers continue to be satisfied with the quality of their vehicles year on year. The Sorento is an excellent choice for towing as there is no need to compromise between power, reliability and style.”
