Kia will show the third-generation Sorento at the Paris Motor Show


Starting from October 2nd you will be able to see the all-new Kia Sorento at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Kia describes it as a more sophisticated SUV featuring a "premium look and feel, with more space and numerous innovative features".


The changes did not happen only in the exterior, the interior has also undergone many alterations, now having a more sophisticated, and luxurious cabin with higher quality materials. The interior also benefits from a generous increase in the overall space for the 5 or 7 passengers, depending on which version you choose to buy. This is achieved thanks to the larger wheelbase (+80 mm to 2,780 mm) even taking into account that the roofline is 15 mm lower. The cargo space also got bigger, being that now has around 600 liters.

Kia will offer three engines choices, one 2.4-liter petrol direct injection (GDI) unit and two diesels (2.0 and 2.2-liter variants). The power output varies between 185 and 200ps. The 2.4 and 2.2 engines are available with both a manual and an automatic transmission, while the least powerful engine is only available with a speed automatic transmission. You can expect a top speed between 190 and 203km/h and a 0 to 100km/h acceleration varying from 9 seconds up to 10.5.
