Boot space is another Sorento strong point. There's an impressive 605 litres with the two rearmost seats folded down – that's considerably more space than you get in a Discovery Sport or a Volvo XC60. Even with all seven seats in place, there’s enough room for a few shopping bags or a couple of small suitcases. In two-seater mode, with the second and third rows folded down, the load area is huge.
The boot is a pretty practical shape, too, with only a little intrusion from the wheel arches. The floor is flush with the boot opening, so you don’t have to lift heavy items over an annoying lip, and the wide boot opening helps when loading bulky items.
The load cover is a roller blind-style piece of fabric that pulls out to cover the boot area. Handily, it can be stowed under the boot floor when it isn’t required.
