You don’t have to wait any longer to see the new version of the mid-size Sorento crossover, because these photos provide the most comprehensive look at the new exterior of the popular model.

The guys from the South Korean brand Kia apparently do not do very well with the task of maintaining the design, the updated Sorento crossover in secret. After a recent observation of the prototype of the long-awaited new product, which received minimal camouflage, we received these new “spy” photos that show us the mid-size crossover, as they say, in all its glory.

 Compared to the current version of Sorento, the new model has a much more … adventurous style. Unlike the soft curved lines of the design in the existing version of the model, the next-generation Sorento has a more aggressive, swift appearance. In front, the false radiator grille acquires a more complex shape, which now smoothly “flows” into the headlights. The front bumper also got a more angular shape, and trapezoidal fog lights that take up space on the sides. The profile also shows clearer lines of the new Sorento. The “muscular” line is also visible along the doors, on the lower parts. There are thin “rails” on the roof and a rear spoiler.

 At the rear, the Sorento has two large vertical taillights on each side. The lower part of the rear bumper received narrow, trapezoidal tailpipes of the exhaust system.

Kia will offer the Sorento 2021 crossover model year with several engine options. The gasoline family will consist of a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged analog and a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine. It will be possible to purchase turbo-diesel 2.0- and 2.2-liter units. The crossover will also be offered with hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines.

 According to reports, Kia will present an updated Sorento for the Korean market on February 17 this year. The start of sales of new items in other automotive markets is likely to be scheduled for either at the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021.
