SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- When is a full makeover not such a full makeover? Maybe when you’re talking about the 2014 Kia Sorento. This crossover SUV is said to be totally redone, if you listen to the Korean automaker. But it sure looks similar to the previous version.
Well, at least to the naked eye it looks the same.
The Sorento gets a new chassis – the same one used by sister automaker Hyundai on its Santa Fe crossover.
Kia says the handling, ride and noise reduction have been improved. On a recent reveal event in Scottsdale for journalists, we got to take the Sorento out on highways traversing the desert.
