2010 Kia Sorento revealed

Kia Sorento fq

The first official photos of the 2010 Kia Sorento have just been released, and from the looks of things, it’s in keeping with the other improvements the automaker has been making to its lineup. The current Sorento has received praise for its looks with a shape that’s evocative of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. In the new Sorento Kia retains a traditional SUV profile but you can see that a thick D-pillar now sits after the side glass. The new, larger Sorento will have a seven-passenger capability.

The new Sorento doesn’t appear to mess with success, retaining the same basic shape while incorporating Kia’s new corporate face and a shaped hood. Its public debut is predicted for the Seoul Motor Show next month, and reports say that the the new SUV will be available with a Euro 5-compliant 2.0-litre clean diesel making 200 horsepower and 295-lb-ft of torque. In the states engines will include a 170-horsepower 2.4-litre four and and a 3.8-litre, 260-horse Lambda V6.
