2016 Kia Sorento Says 'Bonjour!' to Paris

The 2016 Kia Sorento made its European premiere in Paris recently, with its style, practicality and technology making everyone say "Ooh, la, la!"

The third-generation SUV has a sophisticated new design that offers a premium look and feel in addition to more space and plenty of innovative features. Luxury permeates the entire vehicle, with the interior of the new Sorento featuring soft-touch materials and leather. Drivers and passengers enjoy ample headroom and legroom, plus there are advanced tech features such as multiple cameras for easier maneuvering and a tailgate that opens automatically when the vehicle senses that the key is nearby. The 2016 Kia Sorento also has a new, strengthened bodyshell that helps quiet noise and vibration, creating a serene ride. 
Three engines are available on the new Sorento, including a gasoline direct-injection unit and two turbo-diesel engines. Body control motion is improved with larger shock absorbers mounted vertically behind the axle line, and an all-new electric motor-driven power steering system mounted directly onto the steering rack provides greater steering feel and quicker response than ever before.
