Like honey, the Kia Sorento will not be bad on the shelves. The last redesign was made two years ago, and we are still gentle for its pretty driving, its quality materials and many configurations.
At the front of 2018 Kia Sorento there are revised lighthouse units, now full LEDs, as well as repositioned LED daylight lights that are now located under the main beams as opposed to the “eyebrow” look of the current car. The front grille now has balance-shaped inserts in relation to the appearance of the current car’s diamond, while the front bumper has also been updated. On the back there is a new signature in the light of the LED while the new rear bumper sees the reflectors separated from the black plastic duct and the exhaust pipes are now exposed in a dual design similar to Hyundai Santa Fe. Revised alloy wheels complete exterior aesthetics.
Inside, the most important changes were made. Kia seems to have really surpassed the lead in the cabin to give the Sorento a better way to feel an appropriate move for the company’s flagship SUV. There is a new infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the steering wheel now has a strange square center shape with a circular central patch. On the center console, there is an updated gear change that almost looks like the appearance of an Audi. The covered leather adorns the seat cushions of the vehicle shown in the pictures, as well as a choice of tan color.
