The Kia Sorento received a minor facelift for the 2013 model. The Sorento is a road-going crossover SUV with seating for five or optionally seven, four-wheel independent suspension. The available engine for the GCC is a 3.5-litre V6 with a 6-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive, and a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder joined later, with a 6-speed automatic and a choice of front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. The interior is available in four colours, with cloth or leather upholstery. The new Sorento CUV can be equipped with a 6-speaker or 8-speaker audio system with MP3, USB and iPod connectivity, plus a built-in or external amplifier. Depending on model, available tech features on higher models include hands-free keyless entry and engine start button, in-mirror reversing camera, navigation, automatic a/c, xenon headlamps, LED indicators on the mirrors, seat cooler and warmer in the front, fold-flat 3rd-row seat and a panoramic glass sunroof. Lower models get 17-inch alloy wheels while higher trims get 18-inch or 19-inch ones, and all get standard four-wheel disc brakes. The Sorento is also available with features such as standard ABS with electronic brake-force distribution, and optional stability control, while passive safety is limited to a stiffened structure and two front airbags, with side and curtain airbags only on the top model. Rent Kia Sorento and roam all over Dubai.

Afamia Car Rentals offers delivery upon request to your location (view fast delivery locations) within Dubai. However, free pick-up from their branch in JLT is available during office hours.
You will be charged AED 5 upon crossing every salik (toll) gate. You will be billed at the end of your rental duration. The salik amount may be deducted from your security deposit or you can pay for it separately.
As per RTA, all rental cars in the UAE are provided with comprehensive insurance (a.k.a. basic insurance). This means that by default, you are covered incase of an accidental damage provided it isn’t your fault. A police report must be obtained at the time of an accident. Your rental amount includes basic coverage. Most car rental companies provide CDW (collision damage waiver) for an additional charge. This covers you for any accidental damage by your own fault as well. However, a valid police report is still required for coverage.
The car rental security deposit between AED 1000 – AED 10,000 is taken at the start of rental. It is released max 30 days after the car is returned. It may be returned to you by bank transfer, cash deposit into your bank account or cheque. Security block by credit card pre-authorization is better as it is automatically released by the bank on the same credit card within 30 days.
All rental cars come with standard mileage limit based on your rental period. However, some companies offer unlimited mileage as well. Custom mileage limit packages for an additional charge may be available. To calculate your mileage, the car rental agreement mentions the km on the car’s odometer at the start of your rental. If you exceed the allowed kms, additional charges apply. For this car, AED 10 / km is chargeable above the included mileage limit.
The legal age to rent a vehicle (car, van, pick-up truck, SUV or any other) in the UAE is 21 years as per RTA regulations. However, this largely depends on the insurance policy issued to the car by the car rental company. The minimum age may be 23 years and even 25 years, in some cases. The minimum age to rent the listed car is 18 years. Please contact the supplier for more details.
If you have a new driving license that’s less than six months old, please check with the car rental agent as the requirement varies based on the insurance policy of the respective car. Some are available for new driving license holders at a higher security deposit amount, with limited insurance coverage and liable for higher excess fee while others are only available with older licenses. All cars can be rented with a valid driving license older than six months.
