On the first day of Autumn, Kia is doing the contemporary thing - a digital reveal rather than gathering hundreds of chattering journalists in one stuffy room. The 2021 Kia Sorento is the star today - based on the updated platform shared with the Sonata and K5 and gaining all the benefits of the new platform. What I found a couple of weeks ago on the EPA site made the new Sorento particularly interesting. Hiding in the spreadsheet for fuel economy test results is: The Sorento hybrid. Here are the numbers: Sorento Hybrid 1.6L Auto 39/35/37 54/49.8/52.0255 They're city/highway/combined - Monroney numbers and then dyno test numbers. Kia has EPA certified cars in the past that never quite made it to market. But with the RAV4/CRV/Highlander/Escape hybrids out there and selling, I suspect they will offer the Sorento hybrid - at least in CARB states. Can't wait to dig into the news when the curtain lifts at 11am PDT (2pm EDT).
