Default 2021 Kia Sorento

It is official :)










On a personal note, if this comes with Diesel and DCT/DSG, then this could be a viable replacement to my Ford Focus Mk2 Diesel Powershift.

I am definitely going to keep an eye out for this new MQ4 Sorento :)

Whilst the front 3/4 view looks rather good (as does the side profile, just not sure about the Proceed inspired shark fin in the 3rd window here), there is something off at the rear end, that rear light design does not go with the rest IMO.

Inside is better than on the first spy pics, but that area around the center air vents and that tiny AC screen have a weird early 2000s vibe, again kind of not fitting the rest of the interior's theme....

What an awful rear end. They really couldn’t decide on what this thing should look like. That interior layout is bizarrely dated aside from the big entertainment screen.

The interior is the only highlight of this new Sorento. The exterior looks like a mess. I looks like the design team didn't talk to each other as the front, side and rear don't match up at all.

Yeah, there's just too much going on. Very Chinese-esque design.
The interior lighting and graphics look cheap. Those vents are wacky too.

And I can't decide whether or not the tail lights should've just been a single element instead of split by that tiny trim piece.

Not sure why Kia went with a split rear light design, not a fan.

Way too much going on front and back. Split lights in the back are ugly and make assembly very challenging. That weird painted bit on the side beltline looks like a hangnail.
If they just cleaned it up and "edited" it down a bit, this would be a great car.

I actually like the back...front is just kind of 'whatever' to me; feels like incremental changes just for the sake of change. The interior is very nice. This will be a winner for them for sure.

Odd styling, as if it was originally a rounded vehicle and the front and rear was restyled to be more angular.
