Kia has taken the wraps off its Sorento – the landmark vehicle that took the Korean brand onto the world stage – at the Seoul Motor Show.
Longer and lower, the Sorento brings sleek styling and a futuristic touch to the world of the urban CUV. With its longer front overhang, wedge profile, crisply defined greenhouse and accentuated wheelarch volumes, Kia’s CUV looks thoroughly modern and sporty.

Soul. It's something that even dictionaries find hard to describe, but anyone who's 'got soul' knows what it means. Likewise, the new Kia Soul – the latest small car from one of the world's most energetic and vibrant car companies – is hard to categorise, for it fits into none of the motor industry's neat pigeon holes. But one look at it and anyone who's 'got soul' will understand. Soul has got soul and it hits Kia showrooms from March 1.
