SUV, which should take place on a step below the large crossover Telluride, will be the epitome of the latest trends in corporate aesthetics: according to the publication Carscoops, Sorento exterior will make up the most remarkable details of the latest innovations. At the same time, Kia designers are not going to be limited to large models: they will borrow something, for example, from the relatively compact Seltos and Proceed.
The interior architecture should also be completely changed, but this time in the style of Telluride. And thanks to the increase in the wheelbase of the third row of passengers should be somewhat more spacious. The list of equipment Sorento will include a new multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (rumored to be almost in the base), heating and ventilation for the seats of the first and second (!) series, wireless charging for your smartphone and the latest developments Kia in the field of driver's assistants.
Motor range for Sorento should be much more extensive. In addition to the already known gasoline engines of 2.0 and 2.4 liters, as well as 2.2-liter diesel, it promises to include a hybrid power plant based on a 2-liter gasoline unit, which debuted on the Sonata. And the interesting thing is that, according to preliminary data, the top position in the range is a 300-horsepower V6 3.8 l front – wheel Drive or full with a clutch on the rear axle, the box – no alternative 8-band gun.
Presumably, the debut of the new crossover will take place in the coming months, and on sale it should appear early next year.
