Kia Skipping 2010 and Heads Straight for the 2011 Sorento

Industry News

Kia first introduced its mid-size SUV the Sorento at a time when the market was dominated by SUVs. Result: not too successful. Kia must have been upset about this too since it decided to completely skip the 2010 year model, opting to forge ahead with the 2011 model. First off the 2011 Kia Sorento definitely looks better than its predecessor, decked with a grille that is quickly becoming Kia's trademark design.

The 2011 Kia Sorento's design is sharp with geometric shapes and creases, also has a 7.2 inches ground clearance perfect if you plan on going off-road. Inside is all about more space, up to 15% more and this also goes for the cargo area. Simply put, the 2011 Sorento pretty much has nothing in common with the old model expect its name.
