The Kia Sorento was initially introduced as a compact SUV in 2002. In 2009, it was marketed as a midsize crossover as demand for such vehicles rose internationally.

The third generation of the Kia Sorento was introduced in 2014 but was offered in the local market a year after.

The Kia Sorento measures 4,800mm long, 1,890mm wide, and 1,685mm tall. Though revamped, it still displays the tiger-nose grille with polished chrome details, a trademark of Kia Motors. A pair of LED projector headlights with attractive running daylights, LED fog lamps,  complete its classy look at the front.

The rear of the Sorento boasts chrome trimmings, rear spoiler, turn signal indicators, high mount stop lamp, and an LED cluster for illumination. Its beefed body, supported by 17 to 18-inch alloy wheels, possesses the right amount of lines and curves to match its sophisticated aura.


Its spacious cabin can comfortably accommodate seven fully grown passengers. Higher variants get leather upholstery with powered control seats. Passengers on the middle and rear can relax more as their area is equipped with air-conditioning vents. The rear has two seats that can be folded to expand its cargo capacity.

Technology & Safety Features

To keep riders entertained, the Kia Sorento is equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen capable of connecting through Bluetooth with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The sound system inside is clear, thanks to the six speakers, composed of two tweeters and four woofers,  strategically distributed throughout its cabin.

In terms of safety, standard in all Sorento variants are the SRS airbags for drivers and passengers, ISOFIX tethers for child seats, hill start assist, electronic stability control, anti-lock braking system with brake assist, and vehicle stability management.
