2024 Kia Sorento Summary

For the past four years the Kia Sorento has been a top pick among motoring journalists in Australia, and it’s found favour with people looking for a stylish, practical family SUV.

That’s if you can get your hands on one. The past few years of pandemic-related chaos meant buyers were waiting up to a year for a high-spec Sorento. Kia reckons that will change with the 2024 model.

That’s right, it’s now time for the obligatory mid-life facelift, and this time around the Sorento gets some big and not so big changes.

The biggest changes are exterior design and interior tech upgrades. The Sorento now looks a lot like the EV9 that just launched late in 2023 - and that’s not a bad thing.

Inside the dash has been significantly rejigged with the latest multimedia and a few other helpful changes.

Aside from some tweaks to help improve ride and handling, there are no other changes under the skin.
