The facelifted ‘PE’ Sorento has seen both interior and exterior design tweaks, along with the addition of extra safety and technology features. 

The South Korean automaker has stated that both the Sorento hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants will arrive during the first half of 2024, with pricing and specifications for these variants to be announced in time. 

The Sorento competes in Australia with other large SUVs such as the related Hyundai Santa Fe, along with the Toyota Kluger and the Volkswagen Touareg.

New look debuts, plus more tech to feature

The Sorento for 2024 has taken clear inspiration from the recently-launched Kia EV9 on the styling front, with vertically stacked LED daytime running lights and a redesigned front bumper and grille. 

In terms of technology, on S, Sport and Sport+ variants, a new 4.0-inch LCD digital display has now been incorporated into the ‘basic’ digital instrument cluster.  

The GT-Line variant gains a dual 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and infotainment touchscreen array as standard.

The high-spec GT-Line also gains a digital centre mirror that essentially works as a digital rear-vision mirror, as well as a conventional mirror. 

Using similar tech to the new electric Kia EV9, the Sorento will feature OTA (over the air) updates to provide customers with software updates without the need to visit a physical dealership.

Shift-by-wire has been extended across the range of Sorentos, along with the addition of an extensive Bose 12-speaker sound system for the Sport+ and GT-Line trim lines. 

Highway Driving Assist added to safety assist features

The Kia Sorento is now safer than before

Kia Australia says that its facelifted Sorento is now safer than before thanks to the introduction of highway driving assist, which the brand states is the next-generation of ADAS active safety. 

Only available during highway driving, and featuring on Sport, Sport+ and GT-Line variants, the highway driving assist utilises adaptive cruise control but adds stop-and-go capability and lane follow assist to keep the vehicle centred in its lane even on curving highway roads. 

Lastly, the GT-Line now includes parking sensors for the front, side and rear of the vehicle.

Kia Australia has stated that the 2024 Sorento will carry over its five-star ANCAP safety rating from 2020.
