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.

As far as new optional features, Kia now offers an UVO infotainment system with integrated rear view camera display, roof rails, rear sonar, auto dimming mirror plus heated front seats and fog lamp, and a Convenience Plus Package with an eight-way power driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a first aid kit.
