Kia launched today its all-new 2015 Sorento in South Korea and the company officials revealed the fact that the aim to sell 270,000 units of the new SUV next year. The manufacturer expects to sell around 50,000 units in South Korea and 220,000 overseas.

Last year, Kia managed to sell 105,649, while this year through July, 60,670 unites left the dealerships in the United States. As you may know already, the 2015 Sorento has some important rivals such as the Nissan X-Trail and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Regarding the design, the 2015 Sorento arrives with a larger ‘tiger-nose grille’ featuring a 3D diamond pattern, swept-back headlamps, a lower roofline, higher beltline as well as muscular shoulders at the rear.

The design is inspired by the Kia Cross GT Concept, unveiled last year at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Kia will officially introduce the new Sorento in Europe at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and we expect more details closer to the launch date.
