Avtotor plant in Kaliningrad started serial production of the fourth-generation Sorento mid-size crossover, which will go on sale in Russia in Autumn 2020. By the launch of production, the enterprise implemented new equipment for programming of the Sorento electronic systems and setup of ERA-Glonass system. The engineering center of the plant adapted new technical solutions for Smartstream diesel engine and the complication of some production operations.

In the Russian market, the new Sorento will be available with two power units: a 2.5 MPI petrol engine (180 hp and 232 Nm torque) coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as a 2.2 CRDi diesel engine (199 hp and 440 Nm torque), aggregated with a new 8-speed automated transmission with two wet clutches. The KIA Sorento will be available in the Russian market with front- and all-wheel drive. In addition, when the sales start, the crossover will get two seating options - a five-seater and a seven-seater.

The body got new sharp lines and curves - the exterior of the crossover has much more details. More modern geometric elements were added, the silhouette became more aggressive.
