2021 Kia Sorento has finally premiered. It represents a huge leap over the outgoing model and will be sold in many countries around the world.

The first thing to note about the new Sorento is the distinctive exterior design. Kia opted against making the SUV look anything like the outgoing model and has created something fitting of a flagship model sitting alongside the Stonic, Seltos, Sportage, and Telluride in the marque’s family.

Various powertrains will be available depending on the market. In Australia and Europe, for example, Kia will sell the Sorento with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder ‘Smartstream’ diesel engine that produces 198 hp and 324 lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque. Paired to this engine is Kia’s new eight-speed wet double-clutch transmission.

The most important new addition to the family of powertrains is the arrival of Kia’s Smartstream hybrid setup that couples a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol four-cylinder with a 44.2 kW electric motor and a 1.49 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack. This variant pumps out 227 hp and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque and features a six-speed automatic transmission.

In North America, the Smartstream hybrid powertrain will be available, as will a 2.5-liter T-GDi engine with 277 hp and 310 lb-ft (421 Nm) of torque. This 2.5-liter engine will be coupled with the aforementioned eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.
