What is new for the 2020 Kia Sorento?

Kia is never one to rest on their accomplishments. That’s why nearly every vehicle is seeing some improvements for 2020 even without major changes. The 2020 Sorento is certainly benefiting from many improvements for the new model year. What is new for the 2020 Kia Sorento? We can tell you all about it!

Exterior changes to the 2020 Sorento

Though the 2020 Sorento is staying largely the same outside of some trim level shifts and simplifications, the outside has changed slightly. In both the front and the rear, the bumpers have been re-sculpted. Most of the lighting including the headlights, fog lights, and taillights have also been updated and improved.

Usually, Kia has very simple trim level lineups, but the Sorento could get a little complicated in 2019. Kia has improved that immensely by streamlining the trim levels while still keeping them packed with features.

For 2020, the top SXL trim and the EX Sport trim are gone. The EX is also its own trim rather than being a confusing option package. The revised lineup starts with the L still and goes up with the LX, S, EX, and the top SX trim.
