Despite releasing a modest styling update for 2013, Kia is preparing the fully facelifted Sorento for the 2014 model year, and here are the latest spy photos taken at Germany's Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit.

Despite releasing a modest styling update for 2013, Kia is preparing the fully facelifted Sorento for the 2014 model year, and here are the latest spy photos taken at Germany's Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit.

Seen here heavily camouflaged and pushing the limits of the highly suspended crossover, the facelifted Sorento will receive a fully redesigned front bumper fascia, grille and headlamps similar to the style already seen on the Kia Cee'd hatchback. In the rear, new tailamps and rear bumper fascia will complete the mid-cycle refresh.

There are no major changes expected to the engine options which currently consists of two diesel and two petrol units, but perhaps we could expect a bit of tuning to boost power and reduce emissions.
