We got to show you the Geneva Motor Show-bound Kia No 3 concept earlier this week, but that's not the only thing the South Koreans are letting out of the bag. These two teaser sketches of the 2010 Kia Sorento popped up on Kia-World late last night and they give us a pretty clear look at what's in store design wise for the upcoming small SUV.

Details on the upcoming SUV are scarce, but we do know that the next-gen Sorento will get slightly bigger overall due to a shared platform with the Hyundai Veracruz, making the SUV quieter, giving it a more compliant suspension and much better fuel economy. It's expected that the Sorento will carry on with the current model's 3.8 liter V6 and a collaborative effort with Hyundai will net a 3.0 liter diesel V6 with both engines swapping gears with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2010 Kia Sorento will make its official debut at the 2009 Seoul Auto Show in April and is expected to go on sale in the U.S. later this year.
