SEOUL, Korea - The all-new third generation Kia Sorento will be unveiled in Korea in August 2014 with, the company says, bold and swept-back exterior styling.
The new model has a lower roof, higher beltline, more "muscular" stance, rounded shoulders at the rear and deeply sculpted body surfaces. "Together with a larger and more upright tiger-nose grille," the automaker says, "these design changes raise the aesthetic sophistication of Kia's best-selling SUV."

It will have its official world motor show premiere on October 2 at the 2014 Paris auto show.
