KIA Sorento (2003–2009)

Last updated 9 June 2017

Has the hardware and ability for serious off-roading. Easy-going, pleasant drive. Useful tow car. Owners like them. Excellent value.
Doesn't handle as well as a RAV-4 or X-Trail.

Introduction

"Friendly" is a good word to describe the Kia Sorento. It's like a big (surprisingly BIG) huggy bear of a car. Women drivers in particular will love its muscular, protective hunkiness coupled with its gentle nature. At parking speeds, the speed-sensitive power steering is finger-light, and the four-speed autobox makes it a doddle to drive. Even the five-speed manual has an easy, positive gearchange and a light clutch.
