What’s New and Changed for the 2019 Kia Sorento?
The Sorento is one of the most popular SUVs around these days, so when a new model year rolls around, drivers can only hope that the successful formula doesn’t change too much. That said, some upgrades are required in order to keep a vehicle modern, and that’s exactly what you’ll find with the 2019 model year. Though most of the changes are subtle, let’s take a look at what’s new and changed for the 2019 Kia Sorento.
Some of the biggest changes come in the design department. We’ll let the photos do most of the talking here, but some things to watch out for include exterior enhancements like a redesigned grille and upgraded headlight configuration. Inside, the steering wheel has been upgraded along with the shift knob and instrument cluster for a better feel and look. New interior and seat colors, Mahogany and Terracotta, are also available.
2019 Sorento Interior Space
Another one of the major upgrades for 2019 is that the Sorento now comes standard with three-row seating across all of its trim levels. That means that you’ll be able to seat up to 7 people, plenty of space for all family sizes.
If you need to optimize the interior space for cargo, you’re in good shape there too. Through the new rear liftgate on the Sorento, you’ll be able to access up to 74 cu ft of cargo space when utilizing the 50/50 third row folding seats and the 40/20/40 second row folding seats.
Tech Upgrades for the 2019 Sorento
Many of the changes can also be found in the vehicle’s technology. These upgrades include a new 10-speaker Harman Kardon® stereo system.
Some of this technology comes in the area of safety, as new Driver Assistance Systems like Lane Keep Assist and Driver Attention Warning can be found. For infotainment, the 2019 Sorento has the Kia App store, allowing you to download certain apps for on-the-go use through iTunes or Google Play.
The final change to make note of is a potentially new diesel engine… something that we know little about at this time but that is under development. For more news on that, be sure to stay tuned to the Kia of St. Cloud blog.
