It has been reported that after Kia Sportage, Kia Motors is getting ready to launch Kia Sorento in Pakistan. The 4th gen Sorento has been manufactured at just two places, Korea and the US.
4th generation Sorento is available with SmartStream GDI Turbo engines in international markets. Kia PK might not take chance with the Turbo engine as the quality of the fuel is not up to the standard. Even in the KIA Sportage case, the KIA dealership wants the owners to have a catalytic converter that is cleaned after every 10,000 kilometers in order to maintain the warranty.
KIA would most likely launch 3rd Gen Sorento in Pakistan. It is a uni-body 7 seater. The exterior of the car has the Tiger-Nose grill on the front. The vehicle has a sporty look with its sweeping projector headlamps. The LED taillights are part of higher trim / variants. All in all the vehicle looks handsome and premium.
The length, width, and height of the car are 189mm, 74.4mm, and 66mm. The different engine options available in Sorento are 3.3LV6, 3.5LV6, 2.4L MPI, 2L Turbo GDI, 2L Diesel, and 2.2L Diesel.
The interior of the car has Soft-touch material installed with simple driver-centric controls. The expected price of Sorento would be around Rs7 Million. The success of Sorento would be dependent on the availability of its parts, maintenance costs. If the availability of spare parts and maintenance costs is expensive, it can affect the resale value of the car.
