A 1.6-litre turbocharged GDI engine that works with an electric motor and 1.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack which produces a total of 230hp and 350Nm of torque. 0 to 100km/h would take you 8.8 seconds with a top speed of 193km/h. More importantly, it delivers 5.4L/100km – which gets you 1,240 kilometres on a full tank.

From the cockpit, you’re greeted with a 10.25-inch touchscreen for infotainment and 12.3-inches for the driver’s display. There’s a wireless smartphone charger to keep wires at bay and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard too.

With useful features for the day-to-day, modern-looking SUV, the new Kia Sorento Hybrid can do all and it proves it like what CarBuyer Singapore’s Editor-In-Chief Derryn calls, a worthy hybrid haven for cleaner family motoring.
