Trim: KX-3

Worth a look if you really like your luxuries. This trim gets everything that’s standard on the KX-2, plus a powered tailgate, panoramic sunroof, electric adjustment for the driver’s seat, a more powerful sound system, keyless entry and engine starting, as well asadaptive LED headlights.

Engine: 2.2 CRDi

The only engine available is a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel that is perfectly up to the job of powering the Sorento when it’s full of people and luggage. It’s a bit clattery compared with the smoothest diesels, but you rarely have to rev it hard, thanks to its muscular mid-range. Depending on which trim you go for, you can choose between a manual and an automatic gearbox.
