The new Kia Sorento is due to arrive in the autumn of 2012; it will feature a number of improvements over the current model.
Attention has been paid to re-engineered bodyshell to improve the ride and handling. The powertrains have been improved to reduce fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
On the outside Kia's have created new headlamps with LED positioning lights, a new tailgate with LED rear combination lamps. There are new bumpers (front and rear) with vertical-axis fog lights and a larger area of body-colour surface, and an expanded choice of wheels to include larger diameter (19-inch) alloys.
On the inside there are improved soft-touch surfaces plus a new LCD instrument cluster, new centre stack with 7-inch display screen, and a new console featuring a straight-gate selector with a leather-booted lever on automatic transmission models. There is a choice of black or beige cloth or leather; 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.
