Kia Sorento SUV

reviewed by Carbuyer

Pros
  • Very practical
  • Plenty of standard equipment
  • Excellent seven-year warranty
Cons
  • Poor interior quality
  • Poor handling
  • Loud engines

The Kia Sorento is a large SUV that takes on models like the Nissan X-Trail, Hyundai Santa Fe and Chevrolet Captiva. Its standout features are the spacious interior, seven-seat layout and large boot. But it also comes with all-wheel drive, which will ensure you keep moving in even the worst weather conditions, a decent equipment list, a reasonable price tag and a powerful diesel engine that offers strong fuel economy. And lets not forget Kia's excellent seven-year warranty, which will keep any nasty unexpected repair bills at bay for the best part of a decade.

It doesn’t have the most eye-catching design, some of the materials used in the interior feel a little bit cheap, and – as with all Kias – the price tag is no longer quite so attractive now that the quality of the car has improved, but the Sorento is a decent all-round vehicle that makes an excellent workhorse for a large family.
