Kia Sorento 2024, after a large-scale update, started sales in Kazakhstan. Local car enthusiasts can appreciate the updated design and technical innovations of the model, while Russian dealers are considering the possibility of parallel import of restyled Sorento from the neighboring republic.

At the start of sales in Kazakhstan, the updated Sorento is available only with a two-and-a-half-liter gasoline engine producing 179 hp, paired with an automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system. Later, as follows from OTTS, the range may be replenished with a 198-horsepower 2.0 diesel engine and a 249-horsepower 3.5-liter unit. The crossover is presented in five- and seven-seater versions at prices ranging from 3.8 million to 4.76 million rubles, depending on the configuration. The main innovations of the restyled version are a radically redesigned exterior with boomerang-shaped optics and a massive radiator grille in the EV9 style.

According to Russian dealers, the Kia Sorento may soon become available to domestic buyers under a parallel import scheme. True, the price tags for the model in Russia will be higher than in Kazakhstan. Thus, the popular SUV will find a second life in our market, offering motorists modern design and top-end equipment.

By the way, Danza N7 recently went on sale in Russia. This cross-coupe is also supplied to our country as part of parallel import.
