Video: 2021 Kia Sorento GT-Line review

With an onslaught of incoming fresh metal, the large-SUV segment is going to get a shake-up. And the latest new kid on the block is the 2021 Kia Sorento. Our first taste of Kia’s new large SUV comes in flagship form: GT-Line, with the more expensive diesel all-wheel-drive powertrain.

Video review: 2019 Kia Sorento GT-Line long-termer farewell

It's time to draw the curtains on our time with the Kia Sorento GT-Line, after a few months of long-term testing. It's been passed around to a few in the CarAdvice office.

2020 Kia Sorento Black Edition review

The Kia Sorento has always been a firm favourite at CarAdvice, its blend of practicality and refinement a standout in a crowded Large SUV segment. We know there’s an all-new Sorento coming later this year, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider snapping up a current model, especially if you can nab yourself a sweet runout deal.

Kia's SUV range - Choose your ride

Kia's Sorento large SUV and Sportage medium SUV are already among CarAdvice's top-rated SUVs, each consistently scoring well with our road-testing team. Now, at last, Kia has added a third SUV to its line-up: the all-new 2020 Kia Seltos...

Petrol versus diesel; what is the best choice when it comes to Kia's big family SUV?

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe v Kia Sorento v Mazda CX-8 v Peugeot 5008 v Skoda Kodiaq v Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace

People-movers are pretty passé, which explains the continual success of seven-seat crossover SUVs like the group tested here. We’ve assembled what we consider to be six of the best, with the added bonus that all are either new models or at least recently upgraded...

Kia Sorento GT Line v Nissan Pathfinder Ti v Toyota Kluger Grande comparison

The second-generation Mazda CX-9 shook up the large family crossover segment when it arrived here about a year ago, but it's not the be-all and end-all. For instance, the colossal American-made Toyota Kluger and Nissan Pathfinder may not have the Mazda's badge or chic design, but they're both noteworthy prospects...

2011 Kia Sorento SLI (4x4) review

At the start of 2011, our Honda Odyssey was approaching 200,000 kilometres, and was starting to develop some high servicing costs and reliability issues, so we decided to look for a suitable replacement. We looked at a Nissan X-Trail, Toyota Prado and Kluger, Mitsubishi Pajero, Ford Territory, Hyundai Santa Fe and a Skoda Superb...

2014 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) review

This is a follow up of my earlier review here on CarAdvice. The previous review was submitted at the one-year mark. I have now owned my Kia Sorento for four years, and I would like to share my experiences over those years. At the risk of repeating myself, we were looking for a family hauler at the end of 2014...

2016 Kia Sorento Platinum AWD review

I have seen a few young people write reviews and have seen such positive comments that I thought I would write my own! I am a 17-year-old Learner driver, and this is my mum's car. It has done about 18,000km in nine or so months, and I have put on approximately 8000km...

2016 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

Having worked for Audi for eight years, it was the biggest surprise to find just how much I love this car. It feels like an Audi on the inside and drives so well. I looked at ALL vehicles in the market and I do mean all. This car could have been $10,000 more and it would still represent better value than its competitors...
