In the beginning of 2018, sales of the restyled version of the 2018-2019 Kia Sorento start in Russia (photo below), which received, as the manufacturer declares, a new body and a much more comfortable interior. Is it really so - a question that will be discussed in more detail below.

It is important to note that the 2018 Kia Sorento (photo below) does not belong to the new generation of the mid-size crossover line, and everything is very simple: South Korean developers, unlike their Japanese and Chinese colleagues, spend between these concepts (restyling and releasing a new generation) clear border. However, this border is often only in words: models of the same line - similar to each other and with almost the same "stuffing" - can be spread by Kia across generations, while the officially announced restyling can lead to the appearance of a car that is fundamentally different from its predecessors .
However, one should not attach too much importance to the terms: after all, the elegant appearance of the car, the comfort of the passenger compartment, the power of the engine and the reliability of the chassis, and not the figure that appears in the press release are important for the buyer.
The first of the specified parameters is determined individually. One likes a strict, restrained European image of the car, not replete with fancy lines; the second is the brightness and assertiveness of the classic American models, by their very appearance inspiring confidence in the ability to cover any distance; the third is bold experiments of designers and designers from Southeast Asia.encrypted-media" allowfullscreen>
