Hybrid versions of the Vision cost from £46,495 with the plug-in hybrid variant priced from £51,495. All are all-wheel drive.

Standard equipment includes a panoramic sunroof, power operated tailgate, a wireless phone charger and a reversing camera system.

Kia says that the diesel version has an official fuel return of 42.8mpg while the hybrid comes in at 38.2 to the gallon.

The plug-in hybrid is rated at 176.6mpg with emissions of 38g/km. CO2 figures for the hybrid are 167g/km and 173g/km for the diesel.

Prices for the Sorento Edition start from £49,590 for the diesel model and top out at £56,995 for the PHEV with the hybrid priced from £51,055.
