Kia has acquired a Greenfield status in partnership with Lucky Cement under the Automotive Development Policy (2016-2021). Kia Lucky Motors will be launching the locally assembled Completely Knocked-Down (CKD) units of the Sorento.
The 3rd generation Kia Sorento 2021 is built on Hyundai-Kia’s shared platform known as ” Y6 ”. This platform is also the basis of previous generation Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Grandeur, Carnival, and Hyundai Santa FE.
Since Kia Pakistan is launching the 3rd generation of Kia Sorento in the local market, which is a 6-years old generation, the interior is a bit old fashioned. Still, the Sorento interior is as good as Sportage.
