European première at the 2014 Mondial de Paris

Wider, lower with a more generous wheelbase

With the first photos of the all-new Kia Sorento SUV released earlier this month, the South Korean carmaker indicated that the third generation of its midsize SUV will feature, besides the new look, a longer, lower and wider body with an extended wheelbase, promising more space and new features.

At 4,780 mm (188.18 in.), the new model is 95 mm (3.75 in.) longer (dimensions corresponding to the European specification model) than the current Sorento, 15 mm (0.59 in.) lower overall height (down to 1,685 mm, 66.33 in.), while the 80 mm (3.15 in.) longer wheelbase now at 2,780 mm / 109.44 in., compared to 2700mm / 106.3 in. in the current generation, should provide more passenger space in all three seat rows.

Kia explains that the new look of its new midsize sports utility vehicle represents an evolution of the current generation, with fresh visual elements inspired by the Kia Cross GT concept that debuted at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, carrying over the long bonnet and the treatment of the wide D-pillars from the previous generation.

The Asian brand adds that the exterior styling of the new Sorento was led by its Namyang design studio in Korea, with significant input from the brand’s Frankfurt, Germany and Irvine, California design studios.

The front of the new Sorento features a larger, more upright grille, with a three-dimensional diamond pattern, and long, swept-back headlamps, while the rear comes with a lower roofline, higher beltline and more muscular shoulders.

Following its presentation in Korea later this month, the all-new Kia Sorento will make its European première this October at the 2014 Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris.
