Kia is considering a range-topping Sorento KX-4 priced at approximately 40,000 GBP (about 61,400 USD or 47,100 EUR).

Kia's UK chief Paul Philpott says the company is analyzing the prospects of a flagship KX-4 variant for the Sorento. This idea is being analyzed after record monthly sales in UK in March when Kia delivered 19,204 cars. A KX-4 version is already available for the smaller Sportage and now a similar edition for the Sorento depends on the dealers' request.

Philpott noticed more and more customers agree to the idea of having a "Kia with all the bells and whistles for 40,000 GBP that you would have to pay 80,000 GBP for an Audi or BMW." Philpott wants Kia to surpass 100,000 annual sales in the next 5-7 years. According to industry estimations, Kia will sell approximately 70,000 cars in UK this year.
