The efficiency of the updated full size crossover with the new engine manufacturer is slightly decorated.
The KIA Sorento Prime, which was presented with seven seats last year, was available for sale this year in official dealers in Russia. The Korean manufacturer offered cars with front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive and also equipped the car with one of three engines, of which the newest, gasoline 3.5-liter gasoline engine for 249 "horses" shaken by YouTube -channel Igor Markelov, who carried out inspections and test cars.
The new V6, which was installed at the KIA since 2018, turns out to be launching. It's true, not for long. Obviously, the point is not oil ruin and so far there have been no massive complaints. Acceleration of cars with this version of the engine, complemented by the 8-speed automatic transmission, must be 7.8 seconds to "hundreds".
In fact, the dynamics of the car are the same as the version with a more modest 2.4-liter petrol engine or a 2.2-liter "turbo diesel engine".
The manufacturer stated that 3.5 liters and 249 "mares" are not greasy and that consumption will be approximately 10 liters per 100 km. However, the data on the vehicle, as well as the measurements during the test drive, showed a self-confident doubling – 21.5 liters of 95th gasoline per 100 kilometers.
At the same time, the cost of such novelty with all-wheel drive and in good configuration reaches 3 million rubles. Is it worth the car of their money, despite the comfort? The users asked: "No, that's beyond!"
