TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Kia release first photos of all-new Sorento

Before the all-new Kia Sorento is launched in late August in its home market of Korea, the first photos of the all-new midsize crossover have officially been released.

Longer, lower, wider and sporting an extended wheelbase, the all-new Sorento is said to build on the success of its predecessor, "delivering a premium look and feel, with more space and numerous innovative features."

The all-new Sorento’s design is supposedly inspired by the Cross GT concept that debuted at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Its exterior styling was led by Kia's Namyang design studio in Korea, with input from the carmaker's Frankfurt and California design studios.

"While we have retained the name based on the tremendous success of the outgoing model, the all-new Sorento has been completely redesigned and re-engineered, and promises to surprise customers with its thoroughly updated styling, a host of new convenience and safety technologies, as well as enhanced space, driving comfort and handling response," said Kia Motors overseas marketing vice president Soon-Nam Lee.
