Scooped: 2016 Kia Sorento Caught Again in South Korea

by Jun 18, 2014All News, Kia, Spy Shots1 comment

From the side, it looks like the 2016 model will get a more upright grille similar to the recently introduced Cadenza premium sedan, compared with the more back-swept style on the current Sorento. Although retaining Kia’s trademark “tiger nose” grille, the grille on the 2016 mule appears to have a gently arching upper edge, as well as cutting a little deeper into the front fascia. Looks like if Kia is using the CrossGT Concept to inspire the next-gen Sorento.

Details are extremely limited at the moment but we expect more power from the 2.4-liter GDi and V6 3.3-liter GDi engines, along with a Hybrid version which could be available from day one. Although difficult to say with certainty, it appears the 2016 model may be adopting the longer wheelbase of the three-row Hyundai Santa Fe.

    Seriously, what is up with the overlap between Hyundai and Kia lately. Those taillights look like they’re straight off a Genesis.
