One year removed from a complete makeover, the Sorento doesn’t want to sit still and continues to add more choices for Canadian families. We’re specifically talking about hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. The latter combines a turbocharged 1.6-litre gasoline engine with a 66.9-kilowatt electric motor and 13.8-kWh high-voltage battery. Generating a total of a 261 horsepower, the Sorento PHEV can travel up to 51 kilometres on a full charge.
