The New Kia Sorento 2015 Model Year Will Be Presented in October
The Kia Cross GT prototype introduced last year, which was called the future prototype of the next-generation Kia Mohave, had an impact on the exterior of the new Sorento. There are some features with the Kia Sedona minivan.
The presentation of the new generation Kia Sorento crossover will be held in South Korea at the end of the month, and the world premiere will take place at the Paris Motor Show in October. However, Koreans have already shown us the appearance of the new items. Note that she did not become a surprise, because the automaker recently showed sketches, and designers could not go far from the general style of the brand. Three design centers of the brand worked at once on the appearance of the new Kia Sorento – in Hwason, Frankfurt, and Irvine.sorento-2015.
Vice President of the brand Song Nam Lee said that the new Kia Sorento will receive many new systems that increase safety and convenience, as well as improved handling and more space for passengers. No specific date yet. The length of the 2015 Kia Sorento lineup will be 4,780 millimeters, the height is 1,685 millimeters, and the size of the wheelbase has increased to 2,780 millimeters, which will be especially appreciated by the passengers of the second and third rows.
The company also claims that the Kia Sorento crossover was completely redrawn. It is a pity there is no information on the suspension. However, it can be assumed that, as in the case of the Hyundai Sonata, engineers will follow the evolution of the current chassis.new-Kia-Sorento
It is expected that the crossover engine line will consist of gasoline 2.4-liter 175-horsepower and 3.3-liter 280-horsepower V6 units, as well as diesel engines – a 2.0-liter 184-horsepower and 2.2-liter 200-strong aggregates. The power of the motors is approximate, based on the versions of these engines on other models of the Kia and Hyundai brands. It is also worth expecting the appearance of a hybrid power unit based on a 2.4-liter gasoline engine and a 35-kW electric motor. Such a power unit is already on some Korean sedans and crossovers. At the same time, the automaker can imagine both a conventional hybrid and a rechargeable one from a wall outlet.
