Previewing the Paris Motor Show: All-new Kia Sorento and more! September 29th, 2014
Paris, we’re (almost) here! As always, the finest display of innovation and design in the automotive industry can be found at the Paris Motor Show. So you wouldn’t expect anything else from Kia in Paris this year, and we do have quite a lineup in store for the Paris Motor Show, which kicks off on October 2 for the media. From the highly-anticipated European debut of the all-new Kia Sorento to newly-updated versions of the popular Rio and Venga models, Kia’s design and tech is on full display along with the new Kia Optima T-Hybrid concept, showcasing the wide spectrum that Kia innovation covers.
But we are mostly excited to finally unveil the all-new third-generation Kia Sorento in Europe! The all-new Sorento showcases a smoother, swept-back profile and deeply sculpted surfaces that take the original model to the next level—with a more sophisticated, bolder on-the-road presence. We can’t wait to finally show it off in Europe at the Paris Motor Show.
Check out some of our best shots before it is officially unveiled overseas for the very first time!
And here’s a preview of the enhanced Kia Rio and Venga, which will also debut at the Paris Motor Show:

The 2015 Kia Rio receives a slight visual makeover, with a fresh exterior and interior look, while retaining the core attributes that have proved so popular with owners. And the enhanced Venga continues to offer the practicality, versatility and reliability expected by European motorists, but now features a new-look front and rear, a more sophisticated cabin, new alloy wheels and an expanded range of options.
And last but not least is the Kia Optima T-Hybrid showcar, which will display the first practical application of Kia’s innovative new mild hybrid powertrain:
Just as the video illustrates above, the new T-Hybrid powertrain will offer Kia customers greater performance and lower running costs, yet still ensure that any Kia model fitted with this technology remains affordable.
We’ll also be updating our social media channels LIVE all throughout the Paris Motor Show.
Only a couple more days to go! See you soon, Paris!
