Our spies have already caught the 2015 / 2016 Kia Sorento on numerous occasions but Kia World has managed to get their hands on some renderings of the upcoming crossover.

Looking more assertive than its predecessor, the redesigned crossover adopts an upright front fascia with a prominent grille that is flanked by sweptback headlights. We can also see plastic body cladding, a gently sloping roofline and more curvaceous bodywork. The upscale styling continues outback as there's a dual exhaust system and a rounded tailgate with an integrated spoiler.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but website is reporting options will likely include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a 3.3-liter GDI V6 and a 2.2-liter CRDI diesel for Europe.

The Sorento will reportedly be unveiled in South Korea in September before celebrating its U.S. debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
