After several leaks, including a big one with Kia’s new SUV captured completely undisguised during a commercial shooting, and the confirmation that will make its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show at the beginning of March, today we have the a part of powertrain list leaked from KMC’s Sorento MQ4 Excel sheet (pictured below).

The new Sorento will have 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, we have a 2.5-liter Naturally Aspirated GDi engine will be the entry level and also a 2.0-liter T-GDi and a 2.5-liter T-GDi engine with a choice of 6 & 8-speed Automatic transmissions.

From the diesel side, Kia will offer the 2.2-liter R-engines. So in South Korea the new Sorento will have the 2.5-liter Turbo and 2.2-liter Diesel while in the US-market Kia will offer the 2.5-liter NA, 2.0-liter Turbo and 2.5-liter Turbo.

European line-up is not confirmed by our source, but like the current one, I guess the diesel will remain together with the hybrids will be the availables. The diesel will also come with 8-speed DCT for the first time. After all they want to move it up on the ecofriendly said offering the Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid so that makes sense. The SUV still has 5 and 7-seater versions.

As we have seen on the many pictures of the interior that were already leaked, the new Sorento will have a 12,3″ inch digital cluster and a 10,25″ inch infotainment system, rotary gear selector and more. Something that is on the list of the information we have received is something very curious, it’s about a hidden rear wiper, we need to see more pictures to understand how it could work.

The new Sorento will make its world premiere at Geneva Motor Show on March 3, 2020. Stay tuned!
