MOTORISTS ARE urged to

take it slower as new safer speed

limits are coming into effect on

many of Banks Peninsula’s steep

and winding rural roads and

“Following

consultation with

the public earlier

this year, we are dropping the

speed limit on these roads from

100km/h to 60km/h to make it

safer for everyone,’’ Thomas said.

The new speed limits come

into effect tomorrow.

Speed limits changes are also

coming for Akaroa’s town centre.

From tomorrow, a 40km/h

speed limit will be in place on

the majority of roads within the

township.

“Akaroa is attracting increasing

numbers of daytrippers and

holidaymakers so we want to

keep vehicle speeds down for

safety reasons,’’ Thomas said.

MORE SUBURBS and areas in

the Bay Harbour News region

have joined the million-dollar

property club (see pages 4-5).

There are 18 suburbs and areas

across Christchurch, Banks

Peninsula and the Selwyn District

where the average house

price is $1 million-plus.

On a national scale,

Canterbury is still seen as

being undervalued, which

is good news for property

owners. Buyers from outside

of the area, particularly from

Auckland, are hovering

waiting for people to sell.

When immigration resumes

to pre-Covid days it will

fuel demand and prices will

continue upwards.

At the other end of the

property scale, Birdlings

Flat has the lowest average

property value in Canterbury

at $313,000.

But I suspect people who

own houses there paid a lot

less when they bought the

property.

Sea wall to be repaired

NEWS 3

In Brief

Darren Moses

TWO DAMAGED and aged

sections of Akaroa’s sea wall

will be repaired over the coming

weeks so that they are in tip-top

shape for the summer ahead.

The work will start next week

and should be completed by

mid-December. The cost is estimated

at $585,000.

Fulton Hogan will do the

work by the Akaroa Recreation

Grounds, between the boat

ramp and boat park.

“The sea wall

around Beach

Rd was constructed

from

unreinforced

stone in the

early 1900s

and it is showing

signs of its

age,’’ said city

council capital

delivery (community) manager

Darren Moses.

“Constant wave action has

undermined it in places and

scoured out mortar and sediment.

That has resulted in some

voids opening up, which in turn

has caused the path behind the

sea wall to slump.

“What we plan to do is repair

the cracks and put additional

rock protection in place at the

base of the sea wall to support

POPULAR: Akaroa’s sea wall has been undermined over time. Work to fix cracks and a

slump will start next week.

it and protect it from further

scouring. We will also fill the

voids and repair the path.’’

Similar repairs and maintenance

will be carried out on the

sea wall by the Akaroa Recreation

Reserve as it too is being

undermined by wave action.

While the sea wall is being

worked on some on-street parking

in the Akaroa Recreation

Reserve and Beach Rd will be

restricted for safety reasons.

The Beach Rd footpath and

the Akaroa Recreation Reserve’s

harbour edge will also be closed

to pedestrians. Beach access,

directly below the areas where

the contractor is working, will

be restricted during low tides.

Public access to the boat ramp

though will be maintained for

the duration of the works.

“It has taken a long time to

obtain the consents needed to

carry out the repairs on the sea

wall because we are dealing with

a heritage structure in a coastal

environment, but we are now at

the point where work can start,’’

said Moses.

“We know that Akaroa is

a very popular spot over the

summer months so our aim is

to have the work on the sea wall

completed by Christmas.’’

COMPOST FOR ROSES

Ferrymead Lions recently donated

10 bags of compost to Heritage

Roses Christchurch for use at the

Memorial Rose Garden situated

behind two tall macrocarpa

hedges at Ferrymead Heritage

Park. The memorial garden was

developed to remember the 21

railway workers who lost their

lives in World War 2. Over the

last five to six years a small group

of volunteers has restored and

replaced many of the special old

roses some dating back to the

early 1900s .The garden is worth

a visit especially in late October,

November and December when

the roses are in full flower.

COASTAL HAZARDS VIDEO

The city council has made a video

on how coastal hazards might

impact Banks Peninsula and

Christchurch in the future. It

provides an overview of why the

areas are at risk of coastal hazards

and what might be expected to

happen over the next 20, 50 and

100 years as sea levels rise. The

video Coastal Hazards 101 video

is on the city council website.

Property values continue to skyrocket

SUBURBS AND other areas

in the Bay Harbour News area

feature in the $1 million plus

property club.

Figures just released show

Redcliffs, Scarborough,

Sumner, Clifton, Richmond

Hill Teddington and Allandale

are among 18 areas across

Christchurch, Banks Peninsula

and the Selwyn District where

the average house price tops $1

million.

It is double the number 12

months ago.

In comparison Birdlings Flat

has the lowest average property

value in

Canterbury at

$313,000.

According

to the latest

OneRoof-

Valocity

House Index,

Owen

Vaughan

the average

property value

for all of New

Zealand jumped five per cent to

$1.021 million in the past three

months.

The growth rate is smaller

than the 6.1 per cent seen in the

previous three-month period, and

suggests that prices are starting to

ease nationwide.

But in Canterbury, house prices

continue to skyrocket.

OneRoof editor Owen Vaughan

said the region is unlike others

around the country, which

are starting to show signs of

fatigue.

Figures from the OneRoof

Index show Canterbury’s average

property value rose 29.8 per cent

($163,000) in the year to October

1, well above the nationwide

annual growth rate of 26.6 per

cent.

Its average property value has

risen 8.2 per cent in the past three

months, compared to growth of

7.4 per cent in the previous three

months.

The Selwyn district is up 9.9 per

cent over the last three months to

$890,000 and Christchurch city is

up 8.8 per cent to $718,000. They

are the region’s hottest housing

markets.

A year ago, just nine

Canterbury areas had an average

property value of more than $1

million. Now there are 18 in the

$1 million club.

GROWTH:

Melton, Bottle Lake, Clifton,

Coutts Island, McLeans Island,

Merivale, Ouruhia, Richmond

Hill and Strowan.

Vaughan said the heat in

Christchurch’s housing market

is having a big impact on prices,

which had long been static.

A year ago, the average property

value was $591,000, up just

$59,000 on the year before.

New mortgage registrations by

first home buyers in Christchurch

over the last quarter was 43.5 per

cent – the highest amongst all

South Island cities.

The gain over the past 12

months, however, has added

an extra $160,000 on the price

of a typical house in the city –

$58,000 of which has been in the

last three months.

For first home buyers, that

has pushed a 20 per cent deposit

requirement up to $150,200. An

increase of $32,000 on last year’s

figure.

Christchurch’s most expensive

suburb is also its hottest. Fendalton’s

average house price grew

11.3 per cent in the last three

months to $1.659m – a gain of

$169,000, more than the average

gain for all of Christchurch in the

last year.

The city’s affordable housing

market has also changed,

Vaughan said.

In September last year, there

were 41 suburbs that had an average

property value of less than

$500,000, now there are just 18.

Bexley is the city’s cheapest

suburb, with an average property

value of $319,000.

Vaughan said the region’s

relatively affordable prices are

fuelling demand, with first home

buyers by far the biggest buying

group.

They accounted for 40.4 per

cent of all registrations in the

three months to October 1.

Investors’ share of the market

has declined over the same period

– from 24 per cent in the first

quarter of the year to 23.7 per

cent in the third quarter.

A COMMUNITY initiated food

forest in Birdsey Reserve will be

supported under a new proposal

that has opened for consultation.

Under the proposed two-stage

plan, a food forest and garden

currently being developed by

local community groups would

be continued, along with a revegetation

programme involving

students from Heathcote Valley

School.

The second stage would be to

install dog exercise areas and

extend the existing car park.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board chairwoman

Alexandra Davids said there has

been strong community interest

in finding a local space for dogs

to play and socialise safely.

“Having a fenced exercise park

accessible in the south-east is

long overdue. It means owners

can let their dogs off their lead to

socialise in a tightly fenced and

double-gated area without having

to travel outside their local

areas,” she said.

“The two-stage process we’ve

proposed would enable the

revegetation planting at the

reserve to continue, along with

the community food forest and

garden currently under development.

“Subject to funding and further

consultation requirements,

stage two would see the dog

exercise area installed and the

existing car park extended.

“But we really want to hear

people’s thoughts on all aspects

of the proposed plan. This is

their neighbourhood, so we want

Taking the rubbish out of recycling

AKAROA’S Gloria Calcutt is a

force to be reckoned with.

Each week the diminutive

85-year-old heads out with her

foster son Keith. They’re on a

mission to check the recycling

collection points at remote communities

on Banks Peninsula.

Gloria used to drive herself,

but when Keith got his heavy

vehicle licence he took on the

driving duties.

Together they search for incorrect

items in the bins and pull

them out so when the pickup

trucks come there won’t be any

contamination.

It’s all part of the service provided

by Waste Line, the business

owned by Gloria and her

son Julian for the past 31 years.

Waste Line is a subcontractor

on the city council contract to

provide waste services to more

than 15,000 Banks Peninsula

households.

There’s always plenty of talk as

the truck winds its way through

Okains Bay, Le Bons Bay, Little

Akaloa, Pigeon Bay, Onuku and

Robinsons Bay – a solid three-tofour

hour journey.

“Keith chats a lot,” says Gloria.

“I love it, it’s very enjoyable. I like

the beauty of it.”

It’s a chance for Keith to get

any problems off his chest as

Gloria lends a listening ear.

CLEAN-UP: Gloria Calcutt and Keith make weekly trips to check recycling points on

the Peninsula.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

At the collection point the

pair are all business, fishing out

items that shouldn’t be there

and recording them in Gloria’s

notebook.

“We’re trying to do the right

thing, make the product as acceptable

as possible (for resale)”,

she says.

People are often confused

about what can be recycled.

“The things that they slip up

on are soft plastic, lids and dirty

containers– it could be at least

an inch in a tomato sauce bottle

that’s been put in here or a peanut

butter jar that’s got half of it

left. The other things are coffee

cups and milk cartons. We can’t

take silver foil or polystyrene

either.”

She says when the city council

first started recycling items were

separated into open-top crates,

which made it easier for people

to sort and more obvious if the

wrong materials were presented

for recycling.

Nowadays people try to use the

wheelie bins for ‘wish cycling’ –

putting materials in the bin in

the hope they get recycled. This

can mean good recycling goes to

landfill as it is contaminated by

the wrong items.

“You might find one that’s very

heavy and you check and find

there’s a lump of concrete at the

bottom!”

New signs are about to go up at

the collection points, which will

hopefully help spread the message

about what can and can’t be

recycled.

Four years ago, Keith came

up with the idea of collecting

old whiteware and cars for scrap

metal – with all proceeds going

to the Akaroa Hospital rebuild.

Gloria was a midwife and

matron at the hospital for many

years and the hospital rebuild is

close to her heart.

So far they’ve raised around

$78,000 towards the cause,

something they’re both proud of.

It’s as if the two parts of her

working life have come full

circle.

Asked when she’ll stop doing

the weekly checks Gloria shakes

her head fiercely. Not anytime

soon.

Still Standing

What i’ve learnt from a life lived differently

by Jess Quinn

Jess Quinn is, in her own words, quite literally a walking miracle. Her body

has been completely restructured so that she could survive an aggressive

cancer. Jess’ leg was amputated when she was a young child, and she

has worn a prosthetic leg ever since. She’s created a successful modelling

career, has a huge following on social media, was on Dancing with the Stars

and is outspoken on the subject of body diversity. She has strong messages

about resilience. Jess has a remarkable way of talking about her pain and

Marae — Te Tatau Pounamu

a Journey around new Zealand’s meeting Houses

by muru Walters, robin Walters and sam Walters

A magnificent, prize-winning documentation of and tribute to New Zealand’s

wharenui, big and small. Bishop Muru Walters is a very well-known Anglican

minister. He is also a master carver, poet, broadcaster and former Maori All Black.

His son Robin is a photographer and filmmaker, who is director at Curious Films.

Sam Walters, Robin’s wife, is a photographer. Together the Walters spent three

years visiting some of this country’s major meeting houses as well as many of the

more humble ones — houses that serve smaller hapu and iwi — to bring together

a beautiful photographic book on the meeting house. From north to south, from

the east coast to the west, and from ancient wharenui to bold new designs, this

handsome book, with its engaging personal text, captures the huge variety of New

Zealand’s original architecture. It’s a book for all New Zealanders to treasure.

Hellzapoppin’! The Art of Flying Nun

by Peter Vangioni, Kath Webster, russell Brown and

roger shepherd

Unruly art and design from the early years of Flying Nun Records. From rare

collectible records and vintage posters to original artworks and paste-up

designs, this 92 page book explores the art and artists behind some of New

Zealand’s favourite bands. Entertaining essays from are interspersed with

brief interview-style contributions from the people responsible for creating the

art of the label. Heavily illustrated, it features original artwork for the records

and posters, photography from the archives, and rarely seen vinyl releases

and posters. By talking to the people responsible, this book will burst a few

enduring myths, and maybe start some new ones.

Operation Trojan Horse the true story behind

the secret of Flight 149 and the most shocking government

cover-up of the last thirty years. by stephen davis

On 1 August, 1990, British Airways Flight 149 departed from Heathrow airport,

destined for Kuala Lumpur. It never made it there, and neither did its nearly 400

passengers. Instead, Flight 149 stopped to refuel in Kuwait, as Iraqi troops amassed

on the border - delivering the passengers and crew into the hands of Saddam

Hussein and the Iraqi army, to be used as ‘human shields’ during their invasion.

There is an exchange of favours at the highest echelons of government, and a secret,

unaccountable organization - authorised by Margaret Thatcher - carrying out a

‘deniable’ intelligence operation to sneak in a group of intelligence officers into Kuwait

aboard the flight. The plane was the ‘Trojan Horse’, and the plan - as well as the

horrific, traumatic consequences for the civilian passengers - has been lied about,

denied and covered up by successive British Governments ever since.

What happens to wheelie bin waste

City

council

resource

recovery

manager

Ross

Trotter

lifts the lid

on what happens with

the stuff you put in your

red, green and yellow

wheelie bins

REMEMBER THE empty

tomato sauce bottle you put

in your yellow wheelie bin for

recycling? Did you know it could

end up back in your house as

a supermarket meat tray or a

strawberry punnet?

What about those empty

aluminium drink cans that went

into the yellow bin?

They will get recycled back

into new aluminium cans.

Most of us are too busy to give

much thought to what happens

to the items we put out for

recycling, but often they go on

quite a circular journey.

Once the items are picked up

by the kerbside recycling trucks,

they are taken to the Materials

Recovery Facility in Wigram,

operated by EcoCentral. There,

they pass through a range of

machinery that separates them

into different product types. The

sorted materials then get sent

off to national and international

reprocessing plants.

The bales of aluminium and

steel cans get sold locally for

recycling, while the glass is

crushed into sand used for road

fill.

EcoCentral sells bottles and

containers numbered 1 to a New

Zealand-based processor, who

remanufactures them into clear

meat trays or strawberry punnets

for supermarkets.

Plastics numbered 2 and 5

are also reprocessed into other

useful products.

Paper and cardboard get

sent overseas for recycling. The

market for these is extremely

competitive. To maximise

the price we receive we need

to produce clean, untainted

materials. Because we are a small

supplier in a global market, we

risk losing our buyers if we don’t

meet high quality standards with

our recycling.

That is one of the reasons why

we are constantly asking people

to take care with their recycling

and only put accepted items in

the yellow bin.

We want to recycle as much

as possible because it is better

for the environment and helps

REPURPOSED: Containers numbered ‘1’ often get a new

life as meat trays or strawberry punnets.

off-set the costs of processing

recyclables. Even when

commodity prices for recyclables

are low, it still costs significantly

less to recycle than to dispose of

the same material in landfill.

Our kerbside rubbish, organics

and recycling collection service

costs about $40 million a year

to run. The money comes from

the rates Christchurch property

owners pay.

If we lose access to any of our

recycling markets, it is likely we

will have to send more material

to landfill. This will push up the

cost of the kerbside collection

service, which in turn will hit

ratepayers in the pocket.

It is important too that people

keep their green wheelie bin for

organic waste only and not put

general rubbish in it.

This is because the material we

collect from the green wheelie

bins is processed locally into

certified organic compost, which

is used around the South Island,

mostly by the agriculture sector.

When the contents of your

green bin are collected at the

kerbside, they are trucked to the

Organics Processing Plant in

Bromley – the biggest composting

facility of its kind in New

Zealand. There, the green waste

gets put through a shredder, with

138 teeth on it, to break the material

down. It is moved into one

of 18 sealed tunnels, where most

of the composting happens. The

composted material is then taken

outside to fully mature.

When the maturation process

is complete, the compost is sold

to businesses and farms around

Canterbury and beyond.

Around 55,000 tonnes of kerbside

organic material a year are

processed through the plant.

This is food and green waste that

would otherwise go to landfill.

If we want to continue to

divert as much waste as possible

from the landfill, we need people

to put the right stuff in the right

bins. Most of you have improved,

but we need everyone to get on

board.

Please remember too that

when it comes to cutting waste

the choices you make when you

shop are powerful. Try and opt

for items with the least amount

of packaging or items that are

able to be recycled in the yellow

bin or alternative recycling

schemes.

The best way to reduce the

amount of rubbish we are

sending to landfill is to prevent

waste in the first place.

Treasures from the

past: Remembering

the Great Fire, 1870

THIS COMING Sunday marks 151 years

since Lyttelton was decimated by fire.

The fire began at about 9pm and was

suspected to have started in packing cases

filled with straw behind the Queen’s Hotel

on the corner of London and Oxford Sts.

It spread very rapidly through the mainly

timber structures of the township.

Valiant local efforts were made to

contain the inferno by the ‘hook and

ladder’ brigade, by prisoners from the gaol

and by seamen organised by the publican

of the Mitre Hotel, who bucketed beer

from barrels in an attempt to protect the

shingled roof.

Eventually, after frantic messages via

the telegraph office, a fire brigade and

fire steam engine arrived by train from

Christchurch, along with the mayor of

and several city councillors.

The sight that greeted The Press reporter,

who also travelled on that train, was just

awful.

“At this time the scene was terrifically

grand, the whole block, some three acres

in area, being one solid mass of fire,

lighting up the harbour and surrounding

hills. The scene on the reclaimed land was

of a most painful character, women and

children being huddled together on heaps

of furniture, utterly homeless, and only

partially clothed.”

The fire was finally contained in the

early hours of the morning, but its consequences

were very evident come daylight:

approximately two thirds (5 acres) of the

township had been razed; 30 local businesses

and many private residences left

with only their chimneys standing.

Though many people had lost their

homes and livelihoods, it was remarkable

there were no serious injuries or deaths.

At the time it was New Zealand’s worst

urban fire, but it would not be the only

time that Lyttelton was badly affected.

Aside from numerous shipboard,

business and residential fires over the

years, a large blaze on Christmas Eve 1942

– beginning in Rhinds store on Norwich

Quay but fanned by a strong wind –

caused significant damage on Norwich

Quay and Canterbury St.

The Great Fire of 1870, as the fire of

October 24 came to be known, was the

catalyst for the establishment of the

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade in 1873,

members of which have served Lyttelton

through multiple disasters and gained the

highest respect and appreciation by local

residents.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Second time lucky

at tertiary study

After an unhappy experience studying

engineering at university, 23-year-old Kylie

Wilson says she was “seriously put off ”

tertiary education to the point she never

thought she’d go back to study.

“I left uni due to the lack of support,

intense workload and inability to specialise

in the way I thought I could,” says Kylie.

Fortunately, friends who’d studied at Ara

Institute of Canterbury convinced her that

she’d have a completely different experience

if she went there. “And they were absolutely

right,” she says. “To this day, studying at Ara

has been the best decision I’ve made.”

Kylie says she’s enjoying everything about

being at Ara, where she’s studying two

diplomas concurrently – one in quantity

surveying and the other in civil engineering.

“I love the small class sizes and the ability

to really get to know your tutors and learn

more from them. The tutors are awesome;

they know you by name and are always

willing to help, no matter whether you’re

struggling or you’re a high achiever who

wants to get a more detailed understanding

of the content for your own benefit or

interests. They’re also happy to discuss

their industry experience with you which is

invaluable knowledge and something you

don’t get from university.”

Having not been able to specialise as she’d

wanted to at university, Kylie is making the

most of her double diploma approach at

Ara. “I saw this huge cross-over between

the two disciplines of quantity surveying

and civil engineering, and the extremely

valuable benefits of being both a QS and a

Ryan

Ara graduate

civil engineer.”

Kylie has also been impressed with Ara’s

supportive learning environment and the

ability to study full-time and balance other

commitments easily. “It’s given me a wide

range of opportunities and experiences,

along with a work/life balance.”

After a less than ideal university

experience, Kylie is quick to encourage

others to study at Ara. “Just do it,” she

says. “My biggest regret was taking 18

months away from study because I was too

scared to go back after my experience at

university. Everything at Ara is manageable

and practical – in my opinion it’s the polar

opposite to university-style learning.”

Sorento a serious foray into hybrid market

IT MAY SURPRISE you to know

that Kia has 10 Sorento models

listed in the Kiwi market.

What’s probably more of a

surprise is that six of those are

hybrids. Even though Kia has

embraced the hybrid concept

and electric-only cars, it hasn’t

forgotten the grass roots models

that have made this large

seven-seat sport utility vehicle a

favourite here, the 2.2-litre diesel

engine is still available in four

levels of specification starting at

$59,990 and ending at $76,990.

This evaluation surrounds

what I consider to be the most

interesting model in the Sorento

line-up, it’s not just a hybrid but

a plug-in hybrid.

Hybrids today need no

introduction, they are the go-to

models for buyers who feel they

are doing something for the

environment but like to have

the range and flexibility petrol

engines offer. Well, the Sorento

PHEV expands on those two

factors, you further save fuel

by plugging in and charging

from a household or nationwide

charging station. There are

two cables, one for three-pin

domestic supply, the other for

quick charging at a designated

port such as those you will find

at malls or supermarkets.

One of the benefits of plug-in

technology is the ability to run

the Sorento in EV mode only;

you can select that manually, but

if you are gentle on the throttle

the Sorento automatically

defaults to electric mode itself,

it’s only when there is a lot of

load or the batteries are low that

the petrol engine comes in. Kia

claims a 57km run on electriconly

along with a combined

petrol and electric distance of

over 600km.

Kia also claims a 1.9-litre

per 100km combined cycle

fuel usage average, that’s pretty

spectacular. During my testing

time the readout was constantly

listing around 4l/100km, with

5l/100km sitting instantaneously

at 100km/h.

Therein lies another surprise.

The Kia Sorento PHEV has a

1.6-litre petrol engine. Some

might argue that’s a small

capacity for such a big car, but

I can report the turbocharged

132kW unit – loaned from

Cerato and Seltos – combined

with the 63kW electric motor

has plenty of performance.

In terms of total power output

Kia claims a combined figure

of 195kW and 350Nm, which

is more than adequate, the

Sorento PHEV isn’t overly heavy

CHARGED UP: The Sorento’s batteries can go from empty

to full in less than four hours from a designated port.

KIA SORENTO PREMIUM: Seven-seat SUV that is a true fuel-miser.

at 1915kg, so the power-toweight

ratio is healthy enough.

Acceleration times of 8.9sec to

make 100km/h and 5.6sec to

reach 120 from 80km/h are more

than satisfactory.

These figures are up to par and

elsewhere the Sorento PHEV is

no different to drive than any of

its stablemates or competition,

power is directed through a

traditional six-speed automatic

transmission to all four wheels.

I took the evaluation vehicle

on a long highway cruise

through to Glenroy and home

via Hororata. I only ventured

off the seal for a short shingle

road burst that also included a

ford of the Hororata River, albeit

running nothing more than a

puddle. The four-wheel-drive

network wasn’t challenged, but

I did notice that the driveline

was keen to extract grip from

all corners, the system kicking

in without driver intervention.

However, there are drive modes

that can be selected to suit the

journey ahead.

On the seal, the Sorento is

superbly comfortable and quiet

on those long open roads,

when the tight corners present

themselves the Sorento steers

with dignity and accuracy.

Body movement is controlled

through compliant spring and

• Price – Kia Sorento PHEV

Premium, $89,990

• Dimensions – Length,

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

damper rates, on-board comfort

hasn’t been compromised. Kia

has engineered the battery pack

to sit sandwiched between the

cabin floor and the underfloor,

consequently, weight is

low which counteracts any

gravitational force up top.

That comfort is the essence

of the Sorento, it is an SUV

that borders on the luxury car

market, yet such is its placement

in the market it must be

considered a mainstream model.

The Sorento PHEV comes

in two specifications, the EX

variant lists at $74,990, the

evaluation car was a Premium

model that adds $15k. For

interest’s sake, the traditional

hybrid range starts at $63,990

and ends at $82,990. If you are

quick to order you may well

qualify for the $5750 discount as

part of the Government’s Clean

Car Programme feebate scheme.

In Premium form the

Sorento is full of kit, nothing

has been left out that would

jeopardise desirability. Items for

comfort and convenience are

manyfold, and most of the major

functions are operated through

a deep and vast central display

system.

Full leather trim is included

with heated seats up front. Other

major items include satellite

navigation, electric sunroof,

paddle-shifters, heated steering

wheel, head-up display, keyless

entry and ignition, electric

tailgate (also automatic), radar

cruise control and a host of other

key features. The Sorento PHEV

has also been crash tested,

claiming a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

Kia New Zealand has made

no secret of the supply issues

that are affecting the majority

of new car distributors, Sorento

buyers will have to wait around

six months for the plug-in

model. However, I’m of the

belief if that is the road you want

to go down (no pun intended) it

will most certainly be worth the

wait.
