The Sorento model from Kia is excellent SUV, and this model had a lot of successes in the past. As we know, this model debuted almost 14 years ago, and in 2010 this model was introduced as the second generation of Sorento. The current generation of the Sorento model is the third generation, and the model 2018 Kia Sorento will receive some slight changes and redesigns. First of all, this model will make its debut probably at the second half of 2017. According to Kia, the newly Sorento will be the best so far, and we can expect a lot of good things from this model.
2018 Kia Sorento – Very Nice Design:
The exterior design of the upcoming 2018 Kia Sorento is very nice. However, we didn’t notice so many changes from the outside, and almost everything will remain the same as in the current model. Of course, we can expect some improvements in LED technology, but that is normal for almost every new vehicle. So, it is certain that we can expect next generation of LED technology on every light on the vehicle.
The front grille probably gets some minor tweaks but considering the fact that the whole front fascia is covered, this is a just assumption based on rumors. Its headlights will also receive some slight modifications, and as we already say, the LED system is standard here. The front grille of the anticipated 2018 Kia Sorento will be a bit different than before, and we can expect different fog lights and larger air intakes. At the sides, this model will ride on large aluminum wheels but we don’t have information about its size.
The interior design of the 2018 Kia Sorento will be very elegant and comfortable. Although we don’t have spy photos about the interior design, but so many rumors and reliable information suggest that we can expect the same interior design as in the current model. That is very good, and that means that we can expect a lot of high-quality materials, good comfort, so many high-techs and standard interior features. The features will be certainly updated which is one more excellent news. Leather upholstery will be standard for all seats. Some of the other standard interior features will include AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM, TFT LCD screen, 6-speakers, Wireless Streaming. There is also a Cruise Control, Manual Air Conditioning, so many safety features and so many others as well.
