Kia triumphs again in the vote for the World Women's Cars: The new Kia Sorento was named "Women's World Car of the Year 2021" in the "Large SUV" category. The Korean brand was already successful in the previous "WWCOTY" award, which took place at the end of 2019, and provided two winners with the XCeed ("Urban Car") and the e-Soul ("Green Car"). Launched in 2010 by New Zealand journalist Sandy Myhre, the competition evaluates new models according to set criteria that guide consumers. This year, 50 female motor journalists from 38 countries and five continents make up the all-female jury of experts. They determine the overall winner, who will be announced on March 8, in a final vote in which the winners of a total of nine competition categories are put to the vote. In the large SUV class, the Sorento was shortlisted together with two competitors. There it prevailed with outstanding ratings in the areas of safety, quality, price, design, driving dynamics and environmental compatibility. The fourth generation of Kia's flagship model features a new SUV platform from the brand tailored to the integration of electric drives. Among other options, the Sorento is available as a plug-in hybrid gasoline engine with 195 kW (265 hp) total output and an electric range of 68 kilometers (combined, according to NEDC). The new platform and longer wheelbase also make it one of the most spacious and variable SUVs with three rows of seats (third row optional).
