The Kia Sorento catches up to stay competitive in an increasingly tight segment. Among the greatest novelties is the possibility of a hydrogen battery version being marketed, the launch of which will depend more on external than technological factors.
The new generation of the Kia Sorento is already underway in tests. His first spy photos show a prototype internally identified by Kia as MQ4, a completely new and much more ambitious model in all aspects that will arrive before the end of the year although it will not be released until 2021.
Completely camouflaged, the Kia Sorento will suffer a complete makeover betting on a front with a completely vertical profile and a more modern "Tiger Noise" grille, rectangular and thinner headlights, and with a silhouette that leaves next to the more rounded design of the current one for another more angular and with more straight lines, following the style of the new Telluride a large-sized SUV sold in the United States.
Mechanically the gasoline and diesel versions of the new Santa Fe are expected, in addition to seriously betting on high-level electrification, premiering plug-in hybrid and hybrid variants – combining a 1.6-liter T-GDi petrol engine on the front axle and electric motor on the rear, achieving total traction – with the latest Hyundai-Kia technology including the system of loading solar panels on the roof.
In diesel, it will adopt the 2.2-liter CRDi engine coupled to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and only with four-wheel drive.
In addition, will He is studying a variant with a hydrogen battery although the latter may not see the light in Europe. Everything depends on the evolution of the European market to justify its high price.
