2018 Kia Sorento facelift spied

The 2018 Kia Sorento could bring with it a heavily revised new look to bring it more in line with the brand's smaller models, if these images are anything to go by.

2015 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

  The new generation KIA Sorento has received more than its fair share of comments and reviews over the last year; so what can I write that can add any value?

2016 Kia Sorento SLI (4x4) Review

Smooth,powerful and refined... Interior is better than previous model which I had. Only 4000 kms so far but loving it. Had a drive of a friends x5 the other day and I couldn't help thinking the Kia was better. The previous Sorento owned was the v6 and I liked the power, though getting used to the excellent torque of the diesel and the more sure footedness of the 4x4...
