Redesign Info

The Kia Sorento is expected to receive its next redesign for the 2021 model year. Although full official specs and photos have not yet been released, Kia Europe COO Emilio Herrera says the next-gen Sorento will receive both hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants based on a recent interview with Automotive News Europe.

Sadly, pricing and details as to the next Sorento's release date have not yet been announced. We also do not yet know whether or not the Sorento hybrid and plug-in will be sold in the U.S. Based on last year's schedule, we estimate an on-sale date sometime in the fall of 2020. This page will be updated as info becomes available.

Genesis GV80

The current Sorento was introduced for 2016 and saw a mild refresh for 2019. According to our review, the model's strengths currently include a comfortable ride, high-quality interior, and decent performance with the available V6 engine. Weaknesses include poor fuel economy with the V6 and an underpowered 4-cylinder base engine.

Although the Sorento is a value-oriented choice among three-row SUVs, the newer and more spacious Kia Telluride has become an excellent alternative. The vehicles have a difference in price of about $5,050 at the entry-level, although the Telluride has a $1,250 advantage when comparing V6s. That said, deep discounts generally make the Sorento a relative bargain.

The 2021 Kia Sorento will be revealed on March 3, 2020.
