NAZA Kia Sdn Bhd, distributor of Kia Motor vehicles inMalaysia, expects its new Kia Sorento to rake in sales of almost 2,000 units in 2011.

"The Sorento has been a success in other parts of the world, and we believe the response for the model in Malaysia to be good as well. We are targeting a monthly sales of 150 units," its chief operating officer Datuk Syed Abdul Hafiz Syed Abu Bakar said after the sports utility vehicle's launch at Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2010 in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

Naza Kia plans to launch up to 5 new models over the next eight months. It expects to launch the Forte Coupe within the next 2 months.

Syed Hafiz, who was formerly managing director of Perodua, said the launches are part of the company's plan to revitalise the Kia brand in the country.

He said that the Kia brand had been widely successful around the world, and believes that the brand deserves better recognition in the local market.

The all-new Sorento features an aggressive and muscular stance, thanks to Kia's signature tiger-nosed grille and high intensity discharge (HID) wraparound headlamps while its straight clean lines give it a solid and robust appearance, company officials said.

"The new Sorento is packed with features normally associated with premium vehicles. It is a prime example of Kia's new direction and we are confident the new Sorento will be well-received by Malaysian consumers," Naza Kia chief executive officer SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin said.

The SUV comes with a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, LED rear lamps and LED side-repeaters on the side-view mirrors.

It is powered by a four-cylinder 2.4 litre DOHC CVVT engine and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The new Sorento also comes with six airbags, four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stabilility Control and Electronic Brake Distribution.

i too really like the looks and the idea of a two door sedan. but having sat in it and driven for a bit in singapore, i dont like the dynamics or even just sitting in the car.

some will like it, some like me, wont.

Long live the Putra.
It's easy when you know how...

expected price is below rm130k and the rear space is very good. you can fit 3 normal sized people at the back comfortably. rear space is similar to the sedan. worth the price and at least a coupe option for people. expected launch is jan or feb 2011. fabulous looking.
