Kia reveals its new Sorento

Kia has revealed its new generation Sorento SUV, which will go on sale in first European markets in the autumn, writes Brian Byrne.

It's the fourth generation of Kia's flagship SUV, and has sharper lines, more interior space, and will offer a new 'terrain mode' AWD option. The car will be available in 5- and 7-seat formats.

Kia describe it as their 'most high tech' car ever, with a wide range of connectivity, driver assistance and infotainment systems.

The company claims a 'step-up change' in quality of materials and design. The car has been designed for electrification, and the powertrain options will include a 230hp hybrid. A plug-in hybrid will also be coming. The other engine will be a 202hp diesel.
