The 2020 Kia Sorento is a much-anticipated vehicle for the coming year. This mid-size crossover SUV has been in production since 2002, and it has won a host of awards across the globe since its inception. Original models were created as a truck-based body-on-frame SUV, with an optional four-wheel drive system. Early production took place in South Korea. By 2010 with the start of its second generation, the Sorento became the first Kia model to be manufactured in the United States. 

This second-generation also brought some major changes to the exterior styling, including the incorporation of Kia’s famous “Tiger Nose.” The Sorento was awarded Autocar Magazine’s SUV of the Year in New Zealand, and an “Excellent” overall score by Consumer Reports in the United States. In 2011, the Sorento was given a 5/5 safety rating from international crash safety experts, including the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) and the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the United States gave the Sorento a “Top Safety Pick” designation, an award that it won a second time in 2017 as well.

The Kia Sorento is now in its third generation, which started in 2015. It’s longer than previous models but also lower to the ground, which improves driver handling control. Production remains in the United States, based at the assembly plant in West Point, Georgia. Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available, along with the option for all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. 

Around the same time as the release of the third generation, Kia Motors began promoting the Sorento through the home media release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. A Wolverine-themed Sorento, created through the collaboration of 20th Century Fox, helped promote the movie and the 2015 Australian Open. A series of videos featured Rafael Nadal teaming up with the X-Men. Kia Motors also advertised the Sorento in the Super Bowl XLIX, starring actor Pierce Brosnan.

In 2018, styling for the Sorento was updated again. Refreshed headlamps, taillamps, and a new front grille helped align its design with the Kia Forte and Kia Cadenza. New exterior color options were introduced, along with third-row seating and new wheels on all trim levels. Driver attention warning systems were also incorporated in all models for 2018. Some trims got an engine replacement, and all-wheel drive was made possible in everything but the standard version. The Kia Sorento’s growth and development over the past three generations have led to a steady rise in popularity. With the rapid rise of automobile technology innovation, for 2020, anything is possible.

While all the specs haven’t been released yet on the new Kia Sorento, if the past is any indication of the future, there are lots of high hopes for 2020. That’s not to assume that a lot of features will change. Most experts agree that 2020 is expected to be a carryover model from the previous year. The exterior should pretty much have the same look, or at least very similar to the 2019 models. Some minor updates to the interior might be included, but the standard package of tech features will probably remain unchanged. Five different trim levels will likely continue to be the L, LX, S, EX, EX Sport, SX and SX Limited. The MSRP started at $26,290 for the 2019 Sorento, so it’s expected to be around the same price point for the coming year.
