The 2022 Kia Sorento is a great option for those in search of a powerful three-row SUV with a smaller carbon footprint and plenty of modern conveniences. From music and wireless charging to the latest safety innovations, the 2022 Sorento is packed with standard and available technology for the whole family. Here’s Waterloo Kia’s rundown of what technology you can expect to see from the 2022 Kia Sorento.
What Kind of Technology is in the 2022 Kia Sorento?
The 2022 Sorento is a big headliner among Kia’s new lineup of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles with its full roster of popular infotainment, connectivity, and safety technology. Gizmos and gimmicks no longer cut it in today’s world where reliable connection and mobile amenities are so foundational to the way we travel. The 2022 Kia hybrid line is built around both practical and superlative supportive technology.
This SUV comes standard with some of the most sought after features including Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth connectivity. Most vehicles that come with these three features on their base trim offer access to them through a modest 5 to 7-inch display or touchscreen. Not the 2022 Sorento. This model comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen display with the option to upgrade to 10.25-inches and an integrated navigation system.
The base trim of the 2022 Sorento also features 6-speaker audio and 12-volt outlets. If that’s not enough for you this system also lets you step up your music and media with an available 12-speaker Bose sound system and rear-seat entertainment system for higher trims.
Driver Assist & Safety
Whenever and wherever you drive, the 2022 Sorento will deliver a smooth ride when you choose to use Kia’s signature Drive Mode Select feature. Choose your mode: Snow, Mud, or Sand and let your Sorento do the rest. The vehicle will make small adjustments to the suspension, transmission, and throttle in order to make the most of the current weather or terrain so you can travel as safely and smoothly as possible.
The 2022 Sorento also comes with a full suite of available driver assist features including:
- Advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Junction Turning Function
- Rear Seat Reminder (this feature will alert you when you’ve left something in the back seat. This could be anything from an extra suitcase to the dog!)
- Front & Rear Parking Sensors
- 360-degree Around View Monitor
Finally, the 2022 Kia Sorento has a few extra delights up its sleeve. These bonuses include a smart key with push-button starter, heated front seats, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and a snazzy 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster that will make you feel like James Bond (if you didn’t already).
Staying safe, connected, and entertained is easy with the 2022 Kia Sorento. With so many technology features and creature comforts, it’s no wonder this SUV is one of the most popular three-row options on the market.
