The fourth generation of Kia’s flagship SUV, the Sorento, has been named the ‘All-Wheel Drive Car of the Year 2020’ in the Auto Bild Allrad contest.
The vehicle, which recently celebrated its world premiere via Facebook livestream, is due on-sale in select MEA markets in the third quarter of 2020.
“As a thoroughly modern SUV, the impressive features and dynamic and elegant design of the Sorento have won over car enthusiasts across the world. We are grateful and proud of this particular award as it marks a new chapter in the history of Kia’s successful SUV flagship,” said Yaser Shabsogh, Chief Operating Officer, Regional HQs, Middle East & Africa.
The design of the new model is based on the powerful, robust aesthetics of previous Sorento generations, but sharper lines and edges and more dynamic proportions give it a distinctly sporty touch. The fourth-generation Sorento is also the first Kia constructed in the manufacturer’s new mid-range SUV platform, enabling its new proportions and space-efficient integration with electrified powertrains.
