KIA ANNOUNCES 2024 SORENTO PLUG-IN HYBRID
The 2024 Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid carries over into the model year with very few changes. Runway Red exterior paint has been deleted as a color option, but customers can now pair the Gravity Blue paint color with the Navy interior color pack.

A gray headliner ties the navy them all together, a departure from the black headliner that came as part of the color pack last year. Aside from the minor color and trim changes, the Sorento PHEV continues to offer an all-in-one comprehensive package in the SX-P trim with standard AWD , a long list of standard Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and the most passenger room and second-row legroom of any three-row PHEV SUV in its class.
