The Kia Sorento's price tag overlaps premium-badged rivals, but it's a top-notch large SUV. It's more spacious than a Discovery Sport, with seven seats as standard that are a rarity because all of them are fit for adults. Our pick is the 1.6 T-GDi HEV self-charging hybrid that offers sensible running costs, and we'd stick to the cheapest 2 trim because it is still well kitted out. Its toughest challenger is the cheaper Peugeot 5008.get the best price
The trimSee full equipment
Jumping up to ‘3’ trim brings 19in wheels, ambient interior lighting, electric leather seats (with lumbar support), keyless entry, a powered tailgate and heating for the outer seats on the second row. The infotainment screen is upgraded to 10.3in (from 8.0in) with better graphics and you also get wireless phone charging. This is the only trim available with the diesel engine, so, combined with the aforementioned self-levelling suspension, it’s the way to go if you’re planning to tow heavy loads.
The engineSee full engine specs
This hybrid model combines a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a small battery pack and electric motor. The electric-only range is only short distances in stop-start traffic, but fuel economy is reasonable for such a big SUV – in our real-world testing, it averaged nearly 38mpg. Performance is perfectly adequate with 0-60mph in 8.7sec and it’s the cheapest way into a Sorento, too.
