Kia Sorento SUV to be upgraded

The Kia Sorento SUV will receive some significant changes when it goes on sale later this year. The upgrades will include a re-engineered bodyshell, enhanced powertrains for best in class fuel economy and lower emissions, improved ride, handling and refinement, additional safety and convenience features plus a fresh new look for the exterior.

The exterior will boast new headlamps with LED positioning lights, a new tailgate with LED rear combination lamps, new bumpers (front and rear) with vertical-axis fog lights and a larger area of body-color surface, and an expanded choice of wheels to include larger diameter (19-inch) alloys. The interior will have more soft touch surfaces plus a new LCD cluster, new center stack with 7-inch display screen, and a new console featuring a straight-gate selector with a leather-booted lever on automatic transmission models. It will be offered in black or beige cloth or leather and the interior can be bathed in natural light through a larger panoramic sunroof (depending on version) with no centre cross beam and a powered blind.

This new version of the Kia Sorento SUV will arrive in the autumn and full pricing and specification will be announced nearer the time.
