Remember the "leaked images" of the all-new Kia Sorento that recently surfaced? Well, it looks like they were the real thing as the Korean automaker recently released the first-ever teaser images of the next-generation crossover.
Set to make its global debut at this year's Geneva International Motor Show, these new renders have somewhat confirmed what we already saw last week.
Despite hiding some of its key details, it's clear that the all-new Sorento will feature an updated tiger-nose grill, along with a distinct set of what appear to be LED headlights. Also present are the new L-shaped LED daytime running lights that give the Sorento a sleeker appearance.
The taillights have been redesigned as they now have a vertical design rather than a horizontal one. In addition, the tailgate itself appears to be bigger and wider than before, while a roof spoiler gives the crossover a sportier look.
There are no official photos of the cabin just yet. However, if the "leaked" interior photo is to be believed, then the 2020 Sorento will feature a more high-tech cabin. From a digital instrument panel, a huge touchscreen infotainment system, as well as acres of piano black trim and leather trim, the Sorento is clearly becoming more upscale than its predecessor.
Kia did confirm, however, that the Sorento will have a wide array of driver assistance systems, and a new infotainment system with 'progressive' connectivity features.
As far as engines are concerned, a new hybrid powertrain will be offered for the first time in the all-new Sorento. A range of turbocharged diesel and gasoline engines might be available as well. In addition, an eight-speed automatic transmission, as well as AWD capability could also make their way to the all-new Sorento.
The all-new Kia Sorento will make its official debut at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show on March 5, 2020.
