Kia’s next-generation Sorento SUV has surfaced again, this time in the towns and roads of the European Alps.

The company has peeled back a layer of camouflage for these latest tests, revealing a look that would seem to share elements with the large Kia Quoris sedan.

These images show that the new Sorento will adopt a more curvaceous look in its fourth generation, with a muscular front-end and a long tapering roofline. Large new multi-unit LEDs can also be seen in the tail-lights.

The new model appears longer; it has been reported in recent months that the next Sorento’s wheelbase will grow by a few centimetres over the current model’s 2700mm.

It is known however that the new Sorento will continue with the basic underpinnings of the current model, which was given a huge under-the-skin overhaul in 2012.

Kia stresses that despite appearing as a mere mid-life facelift, the Sorento launched in 2012 is riding on an all-new platform, making it a ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’ of parts new and old.

Watch for the new Sorento to offer a more spacious cabin, more upmarket materials, and new convenience- and driving-focused technologies.

A hybrid version is also expected to hit showrooms in other markets, although an Australian debut of this variant is not expected.

It's too soon to speculate on local powertrains, but expect a version of the current Sorento's 2.2 litre R-series turbo diesel to continue.
