A new upgraded Kia Sorento will arrive this autumn. There are some significant changes including 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 upgrades include new headlamps with LED lights, new bumpers front and rear plus a new tailgate with LED rear combination lamps.
The interior has undergone changes with 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. The Kia Sorento 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.
Full pricing and specification will be announced nearer the time of launch.
