How the Kia Sorento Can Improve Your Drive With Modern Tech Features

Technology of the 2017 Kia Sorento

With top crash-test ratings from the NHSTA, a spacious and comfortable interior, and trims that seat up to seven passengers, the 2017 Kia Sorento is the perfect family SUV.

Still, a modern family needs more than just space. You need tech features to make your drive even easier, safer, and entertaining for everyone.

The 2017 Kia Sorento Has the Technology and Versatility You Need

Kia has a strong dedication to giving drivers and their passengers the best possible experience behind the wheel. The 2017 Kia Sorento’s available tech features are an excellent example of the best Kia has to offer.

Park Assist

You’ve surely seen the recent “Rubber Duck” commercial for the Kia Sorento by now. In it, the Sorento uses the innovative Surround View Monitor to effortlessly navigate an obstacle course packed with loud, squeaking, yellow rubber ducks. Surround View uses a system of cameras to give you a complete view of the road around you, eliminating blindspots, and even showing a full bird’s eye view of your Sorento.

Surround View makes parking a breeze, even with a car full of kids. It can help navigate a driveway littered of toys, keeping you free from hazards on the road.


On those long drives, you want to keep your family entertained. Kia makes it easier than ever with smartphone connectivity through UVO eServices and Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. Use the UVO system to connect your smartphone to the Sorento’s touchscreen and operate select apps. Listen to music, audiobooks, Pandora™ radio, and more.

As the driver, you will always be in control, operating your smartphone through the touchscreen. You can also use it for real-time navigation with maps or to make hands-free calls and texts, while keeping your eyes on the road.


The most important way Kia uses technology is through the active safety systems installed to keep your family protected.

Advanced cruise control will help automatically adjust your speed on the highway to keep a secure distance between you and other drivers. If you begin to drift from your lane, the Lane Departure Warning System will sound an alert. You can also avoid accidents with Autonomous Emergency Braking, which stops your Sorento automatically if it detects danger.

By constantly innovating, Kia has created a family SUV that is more fun, easier, and safer. You can test drive the 2017 Kia Sorento at Union County Kia in Monroe, North Carolina.
