Kia's US built Sorento CUV is entering the third model year, so the automaker decided to refresh things a little by fitting the car is a new front bumper and newly designed 17 inch alloys and also by offering customers the possibility of choosing new equipment and packages.

The new Sorento continues to be available in the LX, EX ans SX trim levels, with the range topping SX also featuring LED taillights and 18 inch alloys in the 2013 MY.
