The 2017 Kia Sorento remains true to its high-value roots, but grew up in refinement and comfort. The New 2017 Kia Sorento has a full redesign with completely new sheet metal, a new body structure, a newly available turbo inline-4 engine, plus modest gains in interior space and huge profits in general cabin comfort and ride quality.
The catch is that the Kia Sorento not look much divergent from the model of the previous year, for so long now, the Sorento is such a lock-step trans-formative path to match the changes right in the range of small updates Sorento’s in recent years. The 2017 Sorento model’s exterior melts right into the family crossover tapestry, and that can be a positive or a negative depending on your own priorities. From the outside, the redesign is so evolutionary that it is easy to let your mind fill in the lines-from all but the side, perhaps. Within the redesign is a lot easier to see at first glance. The cabin of the 2017 Sorento is quite dramatically cleared up and more sophisticated, with more soft-touch finish around-where front seats is expected typically affects and climate and navigation / audio system is cordoned off in nice, neat control pods.
