New 2023 KIA Sorento Redesign, Release Date, & Photos. After seeing more of this photo-Eyes fresh Spy 2023 Sorento crossover, we will forgive you for saying no, because those days are obviously behind Korean cars.
Like most newer cars, the Sorento 2023 is rocking the almost Full-width Grille, but we will forgive this little Malang trendy convention because the rest of the design looks clean, contemporary and practical.
New 2023 KIA Sorento Redesign, Release Date
There are many details and shades for Sheetmetal, the overall shape is quite minimalist. This is a silhouette of the classic SUV with only a slight taper to the rear glass, which should allow a new Sorento to hold a good bit of cargo even with the second-row seat intact.
Also at the back, we see that KIA has taken the page out of some European designers’ playbooks with extensive spacing “SORENTO” composed of individual letters at the bottom of the tailgate. KIA has also gone for a vertical Split taillight design which puts the interior housing in the tailgate itself and its exterior housing in the quarter panel.
This Sorento also shows what the unified-looking exhaust finishers are mirrored by the reflector housing above them, giving the entire rear bumper a lower very futuristic look.
A KIA executive confirms that a hybrid and a plug-in variant is planned for a redesigned crossover, but it is unclear yet whether (or when) those variants will come to the US.
We expect to learn more about the new Sorento soon, as we just learned it will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Caught with camouflage only on the hood and bumper back, the next generation KIA Sorento made the Internet round almost a week ago when prototype pre-production was seen somewhere in Russia. A very slight disguise of it is now completely lost as our best friend in Atchacars has removed digital makeup to fully reveal the revamped SUV medium.
While these still remain very many unofficial pics of a fancy SUV, they’re pretty close to the real deal scheduled to make his debut later this month at home in South Korea.
Along with the new set of rendering, the new details have emerged to the web about the upcoming Sorento (code name MQ4). The Korean Car Blog is reporting there will be a total of six machines available, but it will depend on the market.
2023 KIA Sorento Powertrain
The gasoline-fueled model will be powered by a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter unit doing its job in the entry-level version, while the turbocharged 2.0-and 2.5-liter factories will complement the more expensive models. The report continues to determine there will also be a 2.0-and 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine.
KIA has announced plans to electrify the next Sorento with hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. It is believed the solar roof in the vein is the same as the one implemented in the Hybrid Sonata will be available, so look for the SUV to offer the yet-to-be-revealed number of free miles each year. In the case of a sedan, Hyundai said six hours of daily charging will be translated to an additional 1,300 kilometers (808 miles) of coverage annually.
