The 2016 Kia Sorento is headed to Los Angeles, where it will be fully revealed at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Kia has released a single teaser image of the exterior of the bigger and better Kia Sorento. From what we can see, it has a distinct new style, with a larger grille and new headlights.
“Beautifully redesigned inside and out, the 2016 Sorento is larger than the previous generation and offers up to three rows of seating,” the Korean automaker said in a statement.
Regarding specific details, Kia is keeping their lips sealed. Other than the SUV’s new bold road presence and larger interior that can accommodate three rows of seating and 17.5% more cargo space than its predecessor, we won’t know much else about the 2016 Sorento. We can expect to get all the juicy details on November 18th, when the Soreto is scheduled to make its big debut in Los Angeles.
If you’re looking for clues, you may turn to the European Sorento, which Edmunds.com says carries a 2.4-liter gasoline direct injection engine that puts out 182 horsepower. We wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the same engine we’ll see here in the US.
Here at Kia of Augusta, we expect the redesigned Kia Sorento to be the most practical version yet. With unprecedented style, modern technology, and advanced safety features, we’re willing to bet that families of all sizes will be anticipating the Sorento’s arrival!
