The 2024 model’s Gravity Blue exterior paint can now be paired with a revised Navy interior color pack
2 hours ago
The Kia Sorento Hybrid has been updated for the 2024 model year in the United States but before you get too excited, Americans will not yet receive the facelifted Sorento unveiled in Korea in July. That’ll probably have to wait until 2025MY.
Limited changes have been made to the SUV. One of them is the abandonment of Runway Red (pictured) as an available color, a shame given how much we liked it. It seems Kia’s press department also liked Runway Red as it continues to use it for photos of the SUV. A welcome alteration is the fact that the Gravity Blue paint can now be paired with a Navy interior color pack that covers the front and rear seats in perforated Navy leather with a touch of blue on the steering wheel. Kia has also switched from a black headliner to a gray one for the Navy interior pack.
