  1. 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.

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.
  2. Car debuts later in Paris. Korean automaker KIA has updated its mid-size SUV model, the Sorento. The nameplate is a stalwat among leasing customers because of versatile seatings and a high-riding stance. Engines lined up for the new car are expected to include two gasoline lumps, a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and a 3.3 V6.

    Kia Sorento 2013

    Hi, I am a new Kia Sorento 2013 owner, 2.2 CRDi model, silver. Formerly driving a Skoda Superb I for the past 7 years, built like a tank, fuel economical and powerful with 1.8T under the hood. Wanted a SUV all along and finally chose the KIA Sorento 2013 model in Singapore due to several reasons. Good: 1. Korean built has improved tremendously, quality and class. 2. Award winning diesel engine. - 436NM Torque, 194HP, Eco-friendly and if you are like me, someone who drives a lot, it is cost savings back to you. 3. Features, FEAtures, FEATURES!! - Tons of it, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, HID, AWD, Park Assist (found in VW range, includes, Skoda, Audi and VW cars), Dual Climate Zone, Reverse Camera, Moon Roof, plus Sunroof...19" wheels...etc. 4. Design - base on the individual, but I really like the design. Former Audi chief designer. What can be improved: 1. Hard plastics - dashboard. This can be improved. 2. Northing else. In summary hope to say hello to fellow KIA folks and a shout out to other Sorento owners out there. Cheers! PS: My first Korean car!

    Kia Sorento 2010

    created this thread for Sorento owners to talk shop...me still waiting for my black SX
  8. Hi fellow forumers, wanted to find out if you have any recommendations for Sorento CRDi - Diesel service shops around other then C&C? TIA!!
  9. Helping my father make a decision on his next car. He’s currently driving a Fortuner in its last yr of COE, and would like a 7 seater SUV as replacement. Visited the show rooms last wkend to look see, so considering between these two models: Outlander $129k Sorento SX Diesel ~ $155k (SE quote) He’s the type to use the car up to the 9-10yr mark before changing. Sorento OMV is 33k, PARF is about 4.7k more than outlander. Travels >30k km a yr, so calculated the savings of diesel over the petrol over 10yrs, together with the PARF difference, it will eventually add up to balance the car price as well as road tax difference. So kinda leaning towards the Sorento. Hence would need some input regarding both models and which would you pick over. Are they any hidden cost or details that may help tip the outlander to be of better value or the deciding factor? maintenance, would turbo diesel engine require more maintenance in the long run vs 2.4 NA Engine? Servicing cost wise, are they about the same? What about parts replacement, Kor vs jap parts cheaper? Reliability? Would assume both are equally as good? Is it easy to find Diesel Euro V in Malaysia? (He travels to JB quite frequently, Penang Ipoh maybe once or twice a yr) Many thanks for any input or views.

    Kia is on a roll

    Kia has definitely been pressing the right buttons in the design department. From the big surprise that the Cerato Forte gave all of us, and the new Sorento, here comes the first few images of Kia's new Sportage. Unfortunately for Kias, they have always been labelled a cheaper, inferior, alternative to Japanese cars which had better quality control, better engines and more reliable engines. But recently, the Koreans have been doing some catching up. The Cerato Forte is a huge success, with its break-through design and an interior that you actually feel comfortable in rather than sitting there for the sake of travelling from point A to B. Kia has evolved and transformed into cars that people want to buy. I've sat in the old Cerato and that felt like sitting in a Little Tikes playhouse; plastic everywhere, and I might say that Little Tikes uses better quality plastics than the Kias of old.. Now this, this is different. The new Sportage will debut at the Geneva Motor Show and it may turn a few surprised heads over there. It looks bold, sporty (as it should be) and more low slung than before. The old one looked as if it was mashed up together with panels from different cars, a disoriented mess. But this looks much more fluid, even rather handsome. Its going to be more practical too, having a longer wheelbase giving passengers more legroom and boot space. As for the engines, details aren't concrete yet but Kia say that they will have the standard 2.0 litre diesel and petrol engines but may feature smaller, more efficient units as well. I guess we'll have to wait till this new baby lands in Geneva to find out more
  11. So I recently had the chance to take the Dodge Journey for a spin (review here). Nothing exciting I know but it left me slightly impressed with the overall quality of the car. Interior plastics were better than expected and the myriad of storage locales around the car was a delightful addition. So why did we hate American cars again? Bad plastics? Lousy and thirsty engines? Soft suspension setup? Someone needs to refresh my memory cos I've forgotten. The last American car I had the chance to drive was the Hummer H3 and boy did that leave me hugely impressed. So, for me, the Journey has cleanly lacquered and sealed in those sentiments. While driving it I kept comparing it to the Kia Sorento (review here). Although the Kia benefits from a far longer equipment list, leather seats and a much better designed interior, I couldn't help but appreciate how the Journey was a different animal altogether. Seats were good quality fabric seats. Steering was light, which should be the case in such a family mover don't you guys agree? The Sorento had an unnatural mechanical weighted steering which didn't put you in contact with the road at all. You've got so many storage locations and even a air-conditioned compartment above the glove compartment. The rims on the Journey were smaller than the Sorento though, which left an ugly gap between the tyres and the arches. Down to fuel economy though, the Journey does just a little worse than the Korean car. So why so much hate for the American again? Both cars are around the same price anyways. I personally would take the Journey for its far more practical uses...what would you guys take?
