2016 Kia Sorento Bound for 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

IRVINE, California — The all-new 2016 Kia Sorento SUV will debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, Kia Motors America announced on Wednesday.

"Beautifully redesigned inside and out, the 2016 Sorento is larger than the previous generation and offers up to three rows of seating," the Korean automaker said in a statement.

A single teaser photo of the 2016 Sorento shows an evolutionary styling change. The Sorento gets a larger grille and fancier headlights, all designed to give it more road presence.

A Kia Motors America spokesman told Edmunds he could not provide any more information at this point, including pricing and on-sale date.

Kia said the 2016 Sorento will be available in five trim levels.

The Sorento was revised for 2014. It rides on a new platform that yields more space in the third row.

The Sorento competes in a crowded segment that includes the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Edge, Honda Pilot and Toyota RAV4.

Edmunds says: This will be one of the more important unveilings at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show for mainstream car shoppers.
