Kia Releases Official Pricing Figures for 2022 Sorento Plug-In Hybrid
Kia officially announces its pricing figures for the 2022 Sorento Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV); its estimated base price is $46,165 for the SX trim (before any tax credits are applied). However, after applying for federal tax credits, the vehicle could go as low as $38,403 (plus destination fee). Only the gasoline and hybrid versions were available in previous years, but Kia recently added the PHEV version to the lineup, providing consumers a third buying option for the Sorento. Prospective buyers that want a fully-loaded Sorento PHEV can opt for the SX Prestige trim, which starts at $49,065 (about $3,000 extra) and comes with more sophisticated technology and luxury features.
Performance and Battery
The Sorento PHEV uses a different version of the hybrid’s 1.6 L 4-cylinder engine and features a six-speed automatic transmission. It also comes with a 13.8 kWh battery and a 66.9 kWh electric motor for 261hp, which is 34 more horsepower than the regular hybrid model. Drivers who decide to purchase a new 2022 Sorento PHEV will be rewarded with 460 miles of range with an extra 32 miles of all-electric range from the battery. EPA estimates put the Sorento PHEV at 79mpg(e) combined, one of the best fuel economy numbers in its class. All-wheel drive is standard for driving over multi-terrain environments and having more traction on solid-paved roads.
Standard Safety Features
Like the rest of the Sorento models, the PHEV comes with plenty of standard safety and driver-assistance features. Kia’s safety suite includes adaptive cruise control (with stop-and-go), lane-centering steering function, a blind-spot monitoring system, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. These are all desirable features to have in a family-oriented vehicle, and Kia ensures that the new Sorento PHEV is the safest and most reliable Sorento SUV ever.
