With more than 700,000 sold around the world since the Sorento was first launched in 2002, it clearly has styling cues that appeal to a wide cross-section of buyers.
Subtle improvements to the design of the Sorento have enhanced the vehicle's look and perceived quality.
The major exterior body panels are unchanged, as is the ladder-frame construction. Buyers have always liked the Sorento's bold exterior and its strong on-road presence, but the new Sorento range was given a more contemporary and elegant look during 2006.
The new front and rear bumpers have added 20mm to the Sorento's overall length, new projection-style headlamps and new tail lights have improved night visibility, while new wheel arches and alloy wheels (16-inch on LX and 17-inch on EX and EX-L models) and new mouldings at the front, rear and side of the body have given the vehicle a more complete appearance.
A revised grille, circular front fog lamps and rear bumper-mounted reflectors round out the new look.
The impact of the changes is especially noticeable on black and silver versions of any new Sorento, with body-colour bumpers and side trim creating a 'monotone' look to replace the pewter grey trim on previous versions.
