Following on from our post last week featuring a single part-silhouette image of the 2010 Kia Sorento XM, Kia has released a pair of illustrations to give us a better idea of what to expect when the car is unveiled at the Seoul Motor Show in April.
Designed by former Volkswagen designer Peter Schreyer ? responsible for the first-gen Audi TT ? the Sorento XM shares more than a few familial styling features with the new Kia Cerato, as well as the Kia No 3 Concept, revealed earlier today.
Little in the way of new technical information has been made available, but it?s believed the 2010 Kia Sorento will be built on a monocoque (also known as a unibody) platform.
Power for the Korean-market Sorento is expected to be delivered via a 2.4 litre Theta II petrol engine, a 2.7 litre petrol engine, or a new 147kW (197bhp) 2.2 litre turbo-diesel ?R? engine, with a fuel economy of 14.1 l/100km.
The US-delivered version ? and probably Australia as well ? will supposedly feature either the 2.4 litre four-cylinder engine, or the 3.8 litre Lambda V6 found in the Hyundai Genesis.
