What used Kia Sorento 4x4 will I get for my budget?
If high mileages hold no fear, you’ll get away with paying as little as £6,500 for a second-generation Kia Sorento from 2010. Spending closer to £9,000 will buy a car from the same year with average miles, but the smart money goes on a car that’s still within the fully transferable seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty (although you’ll need to check that maintenance conditions have been adhered to for the warranty to still be valid). For this, you’ll need to increase your budget to £11,000, which will buy a 2.2-litre-engined model with fewer than 60,000 miles on the clock.
Post-facelift (2013 onwards) Sorentos will cost you from £13,000 for sub-80,000 mile examples, while at the very top of the market you can pay as much as £24,000 for a very late, low-mileage car. However, by this point it would make sense to move up to a newer third-generation Sorento.
