MAJOR UPGRADE FOR KIA SORENTO

| 19/06/2012 | 0 Comments

Kia’s bigger SUV, the Sorento, received  a major facelift. Significant changes include a re-engineered bodyshell, enhanced powertrains, improved ride, handling and refinement, additional convenience and safety features, plus a fresh, new look for the exterior.

Since its introduction in 2009, the second-generation Kia Sorento has achieved more than 620,000 sales around the world. It is manufactured in Korea and the USA, where became the best-selling Kia model for the last two consecutive years.
Kia’s designers have created new headlamps with LED positioning lights, a new tailgate with LED rear combination lamps, new bumpers (front and rear) with vertical-axis fog lights and a larger area of body-color surface, and an expanded choice of wheels to include larger diameter (19-inch) alloys – depending on market.
Inside the five- or seven-seater cabin, there are more soft-touch surfaces plus a new LCD instrument 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 – reinforcing the vehicle’s more luxurious character. Offered in 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.
The new upgraded model goes on sale later this year.
