While yesterday we have published a fully leaked pictures of the next-gen 2021 Kia Sorento, today in collaboration with AutoPost we can see Kia’s upcoming SUV from more angles like the pictures above, that corresponds to the rear 3/4. What do you think?

The Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid variants, that like the future Santa Fe Hybrid, will use a combination of the 1.6 Turbo engine and an electric motor with two battery types. The total output is going to be 220 hp. This eco variants should use the Solar Roof premiered on the Sonata and also used on K5 Hybrid.

The 4th gen Kia Sorento will have up to 6 engines, depending on the market. From the gasoline side, a 2.5-liter Naturally Aspirated GDi engine will be the entry level, with a 3.5-liter NA and a 2.5-liter T-GDi engine.

From the diesel, looks like Kia will offer only the 2.0-liter R-engine instead of the 2.2-liter. After all they want to move it up on the ecofriendly said offering the Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid so that makes sense.

The next-gen Sorento is expect to start pre-orden on February 17, with official launch event on March 10. After this leaked pictures were emerged, this schedule could suffer some changes as Kia could release official teasers soon to stop leaks.

    I like it. It looks like the 2021 Optima and the Seltos from the front. The back has Lincoln/Telluride like tail lights. And I like the more boxy look like the Telluride has.
    Now reviewers been comparing the Telluride to the Toyota Highlander. Is the Sorento a Highlander rival or Rav4 rival? If the Sorento is a Highlander rival then why isn’t the Telluride not being compared and reviewed with the 4Runner?
