2021 Sorento’s exterior and interior changes are remarkable. Design details inspired by Optima K5 can be seen in the expanding and more angled grid design of the vehicle. The vehicle attracts attention with its sharp lines and sloping design. Compared to the model it replaces, the revamped Kia Sorento is 10 millimeters (0.4 inches) longer, at 4810 mm / 189.3 in, and has a wheelbase measuring 2815 mm (110.8 in) or 35 mm (1.37 in) more than before. It stands 1700 mm (66.9 in) tall including the roof rails and is 1900 mm (74.8 in) wide – an increase of 10 mm (0.4 in).

As far as engines are concerned, the new Kia Sorento will initially be offered in its domestic market with a hybrid powertrain combining a turbocharged 1.6-liter gasoline engine producing 177 horsepower and 265 Newton-meters (195 pound-feet) with an electric motor rated at 59 hp and 264 Nm (195 lb-ft). Total output will stand at 227 hp and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). There’s also a beefier 2.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine producing 277 hp and 421 Nm (310 lb-ft) sent to the wheels through a Kia-first wet double-clutch automatic transmission with eight gears.

There’s also a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine linked to the aforementioned DCT. The SmartStream D2.2 engine will produce 199 hp and a generous 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque. In the interior design of 2021 Kia Sorento, it appears to be inspired by Kia Telluride. However, the ventilation system especially in the middle of the front panel has gained a more aggressive and angled appearance. The vehicle’s front panel features a 10.25-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch display screen. The aluminum design of the front panel seems to have made these two displays stand out even more in the design.
