The revolutionary Kia seven year or 100,000 mile transferable peace of mind warranty is available as standard across the new Kia Sorento range that includes KX-1, KX-2, KX-3 and KX-4 levels of spec. Powered by a punchy 2.2 litre diesel engine, a top speed of 124mph and an MPG of 42.2 on a combined cycle, the Kia Sorento has Evans “ awe and then some”.

But as highlighted in the column the spelling of “Sorento” only has one ‘r’ as opposed to the two that feature in the spelling of the picturesque Italian town with the same name. Did you also notice the different spelling?  Apparently Sorento is a small town in Illinois with a population of just 500 – you learn something new every day?
