An image of the mid-size crossover Kia Sorento 2021 model year in the back of the coupe appeared on the Internet. This render was created by independent artist Kleber Silva.

Kia has already unveiled an updated version of its mid-size crossover Sorento. The appearance of the new 2021 model year has become completely different, exactly like the interior of the car. Now, we can see how the popular SUV in a coupe-like body will look like.

 The crossover performance was created by Kleber Silva and demonstrates the design of the potential Sorento Coupe. We must admit that we like what we see, but we doubt that the Kia Sorento with a coupe-like body will receive sufficient economic justification for the automaker and we will someday see such a crossover on public roads.

 The truth is, motorists around the world rarely look for cars with a sloping roof line, especially in the crossover and SUV segment. And given the fact that Kia’s customers are conservative, there is no doubt that such a transformation for the new Sorento will probably never see the light of day.

Depending on the country where the crossover will be sold, it will be offered with a new hybrid powerplant that combines a gasoline 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with direct injection, a 1.49 kWh lithium-ion battery and 44 electric motor , 2 kW. The peak power of such a hybrid is 227 horsepower (350 Nm), and it will be transmitted to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.

 If you live in Europe, you will also be offered a 2.2-liter diesel engine that boasts 199 hp. power and 440 Nm of torque. As a transmission, a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will be offered. It is known that the plug-in hybrid version of Sorento will appear on sale only after a couple of months.
