Recent Updates of Sorento

2018 Sorento is now up for grabs in Malaysia. Also, recently Sorento 2.4 EX variant was made available to us. The car is positioned above the Sportage as a proper full-size flagship seven-seater SUV from Kia. The SUV has been on sale for quite a long time, which has made it look a bit dated in terms of visual appeal, thus a new model was more than necessary. Despite its size, the Sorento looks a bit understated, thanks to a rather flexible design approach with more focus on rounded curves and edges. And when it comes to interior design, the Sorento doesn’t appeal too much due to the simple and quite dated layout of the dashboard. Adding to it, the lack of many new age features deter its overall appeal as a full-size SUV.

However, in terms of comfort, space and ride quality, it is imposing. The Malaysian-spec Sorento gets only two powertrain option – a 2.2-litre four-cylinder and 2.4-litre engine.
