Kia has only begun putting its next-generation Sorento SUV on the road last month, when a heavily camouflaged prototype was spotted testing alongside a BMW X5 – not a bad benchmark vehicle at all.
 
Today, we can show you a considerably less shy prototype, roaming the Nurburgring Nordschleife wearing Recaro racing seats and tighter-fitting foil, allowing us to better gauge its design language and overall dimensions.
 
Less fussy design
 
The 2019 Sorento isn’t exactly the cleanest-looking SUV in its segment. It has a lot of curvy design elements that seem to be squeezed together tightly in order to create a somewhat modern aesthetic.
 
So what does Kia have planned for an encore? Apparently something with a sharper yet simpler design, featuring a more boxy front end plus a very ProCeed-like window line that curves upwards toward the tailgate.
 
As for the rear end, the cutout on this prototype only tells half the story, as the taillights don’t appear to be horizontal anymore. Instead, it almost looks like they feature a boomerang design that extends onto the fenders. Of course, whether or not that’s the case, we still can’t say for certain.

Meanwhile, we’re still not ready to give up on this render from last month, especially since there are a lot of common front fascia (thin headlights, grille design) and shoulder line features to speak of.
 
As for what the new Sorento will be like to drive, we expect more efficient powertrains and better dynamics, while improved driver assistance and convenience technologies remain a given.
 
Kia will probably launch its next-generation Sorento sometime next year as a 2021 model.

The front is good... like the Telluride... I dig the integrated grille and head lamps. But dislike the non-continuous chrome strip above the head lamps that runs into the grille - the break there looks cheap. The rear is a no-no... those vertical taillights... what were the designers thinking of?!! Interior looks good except that stupid chrome surrounds at the climate control section. It's just going to reflect all the incoming sunlight and blind the driver and passengers... don't they ever learn?!

Hopefully price ard 140k, if they price it 160-170k it will be hard

should be ard today's prices ba. 

The current 2.2 CRDi needs to be the mainseller like now. Any gasoline NA version and the Sorento will be all show and no go... and high fuel consumption will result as well.

Kia says it has stretched the wheelbase of the new Sorento while also shortening the front and rear overhangs. The sides of the SUV are also particularly eye-catching thanks to sharp rear side windows and a decorative piece of silver trim on the C-pillar. Found at the rear are split taillights, a spoiler stretching off the roof, and prominent ‘Sorento’ badging.

This car can put infiniti or cadillac badge and sells 300k lol

Already I see keyboard warriors at other forums complaining the new Sorento looks too big and too ang moh. It loses the Asian look hence it will fail in SE Asia. 

Seems like there will be a new 2.2 CRDi... It won't be a direct carried over from the current generation. The hottest one will the all new 2.5L Turbo GDI...
