The Kia Sorento is a brilliant seven-seat SUV and, while it's relatively expensive, it comes with loads of standard equipment and great practicality. Most buyers will be best served by the hybrid (HEV) model, although the plug-in (PHEV) will appeal to company car drivers. Entry-level Vision trim has enough kit to keep most buyers happy.

This is now your only trim choice for the Sorento, but it comes with everything you’d need and more.

There are two main draws for the diesel Sorento. Firstly, it has a 2500kg towing capacity that’s ideal for caravaners. Secondly, it’s the cheapest way into a Sorento. However, some similarly priced premium rivals have more refined diesel engines.
