New Kia Sorento due later this year

The Kia Sorento SUV has received its first upgrade and the new model will appear in Australian showrooms in the third quarter of this year.

The most obvious update for the Sorento is the addition of Kia’s all-new grille and headlight design, but interior upgrades are in abundance too.

These include standard leather seats, dual-zone climate control, a colour infotainment system and satellite navigation.

Engine options should remain the same with the only two choices being a 3.5 litre V6 petrol and a 2.2 litre diesel.
