For The Sorento is refined and has a plush, spacious interior. It’s also comfortable and relaxing to drive.

The Kia Sorento matches its upmarket rivals for comfort, refinement and build quality. It’ll be pretty close to them on price, though, despite having less perceived badge appeal.

Buyer's notes

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 KX1 to KX4.

There are relatively few free-standing optional extras; instead, gadgets come grouped together in packs.

If value for money is your top priority, KX2 trim is tipped to offer the best combination of equipment and price. Top-end KX4 versions are designed for those who want as much equipment as possible, and those business customers who have a generous monthly amount to spend.
