Overview 2024 Kia Sorento

You might think Kia already has the mid-size SUV market covered with the popular Telluride three-row and the new EV9 electric SUV. However, the 2024 Sorento is the brand’s utility player in this class. Unlike the Telluride and EV9, both of which are offered with just one powertrain each, the Sorento is offered with four – two of which are hybrids. You can choose a base model with a nonturbo four-cylinder and front-wheel drive if you’re on a budget. Alternatively, you can splurge on a turbocharged X-Pro model with some light off-roading gear and a range of interior luxuries if you’re feeling spendy.

The plug-in hybrid model can take you up to an estimated 32 miles on electricity before its gas engine kicks in. However, if you want electrification without the complication of charging, the regular hybrid provides an extra acceleration kick and good fuel economy too. What’s more, all these variants come standard with three rows of seats, although there is less space than in the Telluride’s rearmost row.

Kia has given the nonhybrid trims of the 2024 Sorento a mid-cycle refresh that primarily focuses on appearances. The most notable changes include a fresh front grille and revised taillights. Additionally, the Sorento receives updated wheel designs and other minor tweaks. The cabin has also been updated with changes to the dashboard and infotainment system. Furthermore, new X-Line and X-Pro trims have been introduced to give the Sorento a more rugged appeal.

No longer having a rounded and “less luxurious” appearance like its predecessor, the front of the 2024 Sorento is much stronger with a tiger tongue-shaped grille painted black to increase the sportiness of the car. The lighting cluster has a completely new shape, made up of 3 sharp “tiger eye” LED Projector lights. All are surrounded by a small, glossy chrome-plated aluminum frame covering the front of the car with a beautiful inverted L-shaped LED daytime identification light strip.

Full LED technology fog lights are located in the front bumper area expanded to the sides. The above details combined with the embossed lines of the hood have created a design that is bolder and more exciting than ever.


Looking from the side, it’s easy to see the new details of the 2024 Sorento compared to its “juniors”. The first thing to mention is a silver-painted decorative piece in the middle of the A-pillar area, followed by a set of 19-inch dual-spoke 5-spoke wheels with a scratched design that somewhat strengthens the car’s sturdiness. The door handles and rearview mirrors are painted the same color as the car’s body. The hood is longer because the car’s wheelbase has been increased by 35mm.

The completely new taillight cluster is divided into two separate parts placed vertically on the vehicle body instead of horizontally. This vertical design is quite similar to its brother Kia Telluride. The words SORENTO in glossy chrome plating are embossed on the trunk wing as a new identification effect. To highlight its youthful style, the car has underbody protection panels at the front and rear along with an integrated spoiler.

The 4-spoke sports steering wheel is covered with soft leather for a very firm grip. The center area of the steering wheel has now been rounded out by KIA, giving it a much more luxurious and innovative feel.

With the upgrade of the wheelbase from 2780mm to 2815mm, KIA Sorento 2024 confidently meets customers’ needs for a comfortable passenger compartment with spacious legroom. In particular, the 6-seat version offers a unique seat layout design when the second row of seats has been removed from the middle seating position, thereby providing 2 completely separate seating positions.

According to initial experience, the 2nd and 3rd rows of the car are very spacious when combined with passengers with a height of 1m8 in the 2nd row and passengers with a height of over 1m7 in the 3rd row. This advantage helped the Sorento 2024 surpass the Hyundai Santafe 2024 as well as the Honda CRV 2024 because these two models have a third row of seats that is not really spacious, especially the Honda CR-V.

All seats on the Sorento 2024 are covered with high-quality Nappa leather. The Sorento’s 2nd and 3rd rows are also equipped with air conditioning vents and convenient USB connection ports. Unfortunately, the most advanced gasoline version of the Signature does not have an integrated electric seat function for the second row.

KIA advertises the Sorento 2024 as a model with the largest luggage compartment in the segment. With the predecessor Kia Sorento also providing customers with a spacious luggage compartment, with the 2024 version having its length and width expanded, the above advertisements are completely well-founded.
