For The Sorento is refined at motorway speeds and has a plush, spacious interior. It’s also relaxing to drive.
Against The higher-spec models are expensive, and those with the biggest wheels don't ride that comfortably around town.
What Car? says
The Kia Sorento matches its upmarket rivals for high-speed comfort and refinement, and build quality, and beats them on equipment. It’s pretty close to them on price, though, despite having less perceived badge appeal.

There are 4 Kia Sorento versions available
Target Price team says:
Model selection is easy: there’s one engine (a 2.2-litre diesel), four-wheel drive and a choice of a manual or automatic gearbox. There are also four trim levels, ranging from KX-1 to KX-4.
There are few free-standing optional extras; instead, you'll have to upgrade to a higher trim level if you want a certain bit of equipment.
If value for money is your top priority, KX-2 trim offers the best combination of equipment and price. Top-end KX-4 versions are designed for those who want as much equipment as possible, and those business customers who have a generous monthly amount to spend.
