Finally, there are three new interior colours: Interstellar Grey, Volcanic Brown, and Cityscape Green.
The Sorento is highly likely to carry over its current engine and powertrain options. Three are currently available in the UK: a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel making 190bhp, a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-pot petrol hybridised with a single electric motor to make 227bhp and the same engine in a plug-in hybrid system making 281bhp.
These changes will keep the Sorento fresh for the second half of its planned lifecycle, which should come to an end in 2026 or 2027.
Kia hasn’t announced any plans to introduce an electric version, but it recently revealed the EV5 concept as a close preview of a similarly sized electric SUV that’s expected to go on sale next year.
The brand will reveal UK specifications in the coming months, but prices are expected to climb slightly in light of wider market trends, meaning the entry-level diesel will be priced from roughly £42,000 and the top-line plug-in hybrid nearer £50,000.
