current generation of the Kia Sorento is one of the best cars that the signature south Korean manufactured in many years. By design, technology and engine is a fearsome opponent for the SUV large, but by the image that accompanies the signature is not taken into account by a large number of buyers. However, with the growth that is experiencing the brand, in a matter of a couple of years we should know about your substitute.
Currently, the Sorento is sold in a multitude of markets international, although to do this the brand has had to readaptarlo to the tastes of the customers of these countries. China is one of the most important markets for him and therefore at the beginning of this year the makers of Kia presented the KX7 SUV, that is to say, the reinterpretation of how it will be the Sorento for this market.
however, the problem of identity comes when the interior of this model is much more technological and with better quality perceived that of the current Sorento. In addition, the outside lines (broadly speaking, do not enter in details) are more aggressive and dynamic than those used by the model that we already know. For this reason, it is heard by the collective of the network, substitute Kia Sorento could follow in the footsteps of the chinese KX7 SUV.
The Kia KX7 SUV are manufactured for the local market by the Dongfeng Yueda-Kia. mechanical parts are identical to those used in the Sorento current, i.e., same blocks, gearboxes (manual or automatic six relations), and even traction drive system, four-by-four AWD. However, their manufacturing cost is much lower and hence their profitability increased to a lower sale price to the public.
The interior of this car has a surprisingly well-resolved that it is and the perceived quality that it denotes. The top of the dashboard is leather lined, has wood and some details that confer a sporty look. However what stands out the most is the touch screen of the infotainment system as it is placed at the top of the center console and has a considerable size (8 inches). In addition, account with system carplay from Apple and Baidu CarLife (remember that is sold in China).
For the greatest happiness of the customers, the Kia KX7 hit the market with two different configurations for your car. One for five and another for seven passengers. As is logical, the third row of seats will be more discreet but help you out of a pinch when you have to transport it to children or people of small stature.
All these data show us that Kia has for China a very competitive that while he would not make equal to Europe, it could borrow many of their features. Time and patience, because the replacement of the Sorento is almost around the corner.
