Supposed teaser image of 2024 Kia Sorento refresh shows a EV9-like face

Kia has been quite busy of late it seems. From unveiling the radical-looking 2024 Picanto facelift to conducting real-world tests of the refreshed Carnival, the Korean automaker is not resting on its laurels.

In the future, however, Kia's lineup might soon be joined by the updated 2024 Sorento. In fact, a teaser photo of the supposed crossover SUV has just been leaked to the web, and boy does it look good.

Uploaded by Instagram user jung_young_teak, the teaser image shows us a sleeker front end of the purported 2024 Kia Sorento. Borrowing inspiration from the flagship EV9, the midsize crossover gets a heavily revised front fascia that consists of a large grille, vertical LED headlights, and unique L-shaped LED daytime running lights.

Should this leaked teaser image be true, it looks like the 2024 Sorento will also adopt the EV9's design language as well aside from the updated Picanto and the soon-to-be-revealed Carnival. Pictures of the rear are not yet available although it might get some subtle changes which could also be derived from the EV9.

The interior of the 2024 Sorento also remains a mystery although we can expect the crossover SUV to get a more high-tech and luxurious-looking cabin. That means a bigger pair of digital displays (a touchscreen and an instrument cluster), new upholstery appointments, and a more generous equipment list.

With no exact details yet about the 2024 Kia Sorento released by the automaker, all we can do for now is wait and hope that the teaser image leaked is the real thing that Kia reveals soon.
