After 18 years atop the Korean automaker's model range, last year, it was displaced by the award-winning Telluride.

In order to recapture some lost luster, Kia has given the 2021 Sorento a new chassis, sharp new clothes and loads of tech.

The Sorento's new appearance is more sharply creased and more premium-looking than before.

The all-new cabin features a large 10.25-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

It also looks like the new cabin features a rotary gearshift selector.

The model seen here is a Euro-spec vehicle, appropriate, as this midsize SUV is poised to debut at Switzerland's Geneva Motor Show.

Designers pulled the A-pillar rearward by 1.2 inches while simultaneously shortening the Sorento's overhangs. Kia says the new model looks longer as a result.

So far, Kia isn't detailing what powers the new Sorento. 

In North America, the current 2020 model is powered by the buyer's choice of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or a 3.3-liter V6.
