A new kind of luxury SUV
Modern, yet iconic
The Sorento has evolved with a new interpretation of the unmistakable ‘tiger nose’ grille, displaying a wider shape which organically wraps around the integrated LED headlights on each side.

Parking Collision Avoidance Assist
The Parking Collision Avoidance Assist System warns you with visual/audible alarms and haptic steering feedback while also engaging the brakes when it anticipates collision with an obstacle and/or pedestrians. Available on GT-Line grade.
When the Automatic Emergency Braking system detects a risk of collision when turning at an intersection, the system will warn the driver with audio/visual alerts, steering wheel vibration and will automatically apply the brakes.
Multi Collision Brake
The Multi Collision Braking system engages automatic braking when an airbag is deployed during a primary collision to help mitigate a secondary collision.
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
Make it safely to all destinations with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). Using radar and camera data, your Sorento will sense the potential for a collision with a pedestrian, car or cyclist ahead and apply emergency braking to avoid or reduce the effects of a collision.
Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist
The Blind Spot Collision Avoidance system helps prevent or reduce the risk of collision with vehicles in the adjacent lane or coming from behind when the driver switches lanes through audio-visual alerts and haptic steering feedback. The Electronic Stability Control will also activate to prevent the vehicle from colliding with the adjacent vehicle approaching from the blind spot, if the driver fails to observe or obey the audio-visual warnings prior.
Electronic Stability Control
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) automatically applies braking to help you stay on course when it detects potential skidding.
Vehicle Stability Management
Continuously monitoring road conditions, the VSM helps to protect occupants by automatically controlling the steering and brakes when the road gets bumpy.
Driver Attention Alert
Have the supportive co-pilot you’ve always wanted as Driver Attention Alert+ (DAA+) monitors your driving and alerts you if it detects loss of concentration or tiredness. It also notifies you with an audio-visual alert when the vehicle in front has moved while stopped at a traffic light stop.
Advanced Smart Cruise Control
Feel at home on any road with Advanced Smart Cruise Control using radar to maintain a predetermined distance from the vehicle directly ahead, automatically slowing or accelerating your Sorento when appropriate. The ASCC will also come to a complete stop if the vehicle in front stops, and will accelerate if the vehicle in front accelerates within 3 seconds.
Lane Following Assist
Lane Following Assist works with the Smart Cruise Control system to help the vehicle remain in the centre of the lane by continuously correcting the course of the vehicle when Smart Cruise Control is activated.
Lane Keeping Assist with Lane Change Assist
Confidence wherever the tracks may lead. Lane Changing Assist with Lane Keeping Assist will provide audio-visual alerts if you indicate into a lane that has an adjacent vehicle while providing haptic steering feedback to get you back to the right place.
360° View Camera
