What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Sorento 4x4?

The most obvious rival to the Kia Sorento is the mechanically similar Hyundai Santa Fe, which has the same engine, four-wheel drive system and seven-seat layout, but only had a five-year warranty to the Sorento’s seven.

If you like the space on offer in the Sorento but want a more upmarket image, then a Land Rover Discovery or Audi Q7 are the obvious choices, but you can expect to pay a hefty premium for a car of a similar age and mileage.

Alternatively, the Mitsubishi Outlander offers seven seats in diesel guise and has a good reputation for reliability, but is noticeably smaller than the Kia, particularly in the third row of seats, and again its warranty wasn't as long.
