  1. I love my 2014 Sorento(spelled WRONG by KIA), but, when my lease is up at the end of August, I would like to lease a 2017. PLEASE
    let me/us know when the 2017 is released.
    I just turned 11,000 miles after 2.75 years. But like a good looking, reliable SUV.

  2. I love my 2016 Kia Sorento! I had a 2009 Kia Sorento before this 2016 model. Great on gas! If I ever decide to upgrade, I will be doing so with the 2017 Kia Sorento!

  3. Was intending purchase 2016 model Sorrento but will most likely hold off a little longer. When is next model being released and what new colours will be added to range. I am the artist in the family and was disappointed in the same same of the colour range.

  4. Lisa,
    Unfortunately, the color range NOW is White, Black, Gray & Silver. My condo parking lot looks like a cemetery; all the
    same colored tomb stones standing in a row. Ugh !

  5. Does the 2017 KIA Sorento have day time running lights and air cleaning filtration system for the interior, my wife suffers from mold and other air germs. We now have this filter in our old Mercedes.

  6. I love my Sorento 2014. It is an economic vehicule; however I wish I could have an “Idle Stop & Go” system for more energy saving. Is there any converting kit for my SUV ?

  7. WHen can we expect infoon the 2018 Sorento so I will know whether to wait for it or get a 2017?
