2021 Kia Sorento: The 2 variants in detail

kia sorento

The 2021 Kia Sorento is already available in many markets worldwide. Unfortunately, the Ayala-backed Kia Philippines is taking its sweet time bringing the car here, so for the meantime, our market will have to make do with the 2020 edition Kia Sorento, a carryover from the 2019 model year.

Despite being the outgoing model, the locally available Kia Sorento isn’t an SUV that can be easily dismissed. Looking at the new Kia Sorento façade, the evolution of the Tiger Face is immediately obvious. Now wider and more expansive than before, the mesh grille seamlessly integrates with the headlamps and LED daytime running lights for a more contemporary and streamlined look.

Sorento

The Sorento’s powertrain consists of a 2.2-liter CRDI E-VGT diesel that outputs 197hp and 441Nm mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic feature. This combo is the same one you’ll find in the Kia Grand Carnival.

Compared to the model it replaces, the locally available Sorento hosts more soft-touch plastics and textured surfaces inside its cabin. Kia claims that there’s also more insulation used in the new model, making it an even quieter car than ever before. Behind the steering wheel, the instrument panel and infotainment screens now sit side by side, delivering more user-friendly and ergonomic dashboard.

Check out the rest of the Kia Sorento variant’s list of features below.
