NAZA Kia Malaysia has introduced the new Kia Sorento HS Turbo Diesel and new Sportage GT Turbo Diesel variants. Both vehicles are now available at all Kia showrooms nationwide.

The diesel-powered variants of the Sorento and Sportage are powered by the 197.3hp 2.2 CRDi (Common Rail Direct Injection) and 182.5hp 2.0 AWD GT CRDi engines that deliver 440Nm and 400Nm of torque, respectively. The improved fuel efficiency for both models can result in traveling close to 1,000km on a full tank.

"We are convinced with the advanced automotive technologies and upgraded top range features of these two new variants of the Kia Sorento and Sportage will provide customers even greater ownership value and satisfaction. The new award-winning models are highly-developed with a premium level interior, an award-winning exterior design, riding comfort, excellent fuel economy with a more efficient choice of engines and of course good overall performance being “class above” competitors," said Datuk Samson Anand George, group chief operating officer (automotive group) of Naza Corporation Holdings.

He also added that although it may have taken a while to introduce the new turbo diesel engine of the Sorento and the diesel Sportage variant, “We are confident that we have done everything possible to make the wait a worthwhile one and it will be another success story since there is a big demand of diesel variant in the market”.

(When the new Kia Sorento and Sportage were simultaneously launched for Malaysian market in May last year, only the Sorento comes with a diesel variant, while the Sportage was only available with petrol engine. Now, the Sorento has a “better” diesel engine, and the Sportage has a diesel-powered variant too).

For the Sorento HS Turbo Diesel 2.2L CRDI, the colours available range are Imperial Bronze (new), Snow White Pearl, Aurora Black Pearl and Silky Silver. It is priced at RM191,888, with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.

The Sportage 2.0L AWD GT CRDi is available in Cherry Black, Mercury Blue, Fiery Red, Snow White Pearl and Mineral Silver. It is priced at RM159,888, also with five years warranty with unlimited mileage.
