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...

2016 Kia Sorento SLI (4x4) Review

After reviewing all available new seven seaters SUVs, we narrowed it down to the Sorento and Mazda CX-9. We decided to go with the Sorento as we did not want to wait for the Mazda and given the price points, couldn't be happier with our decision. The thing that stands out with the Sorento is the value for money equation you get when you actually look deeper into every objective criteria...

2016 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

After trialing various seven seaters SUV, we narrowed our list down to only three: Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Kluger and Kia Sorento. I still think that Toyota Kluger has the best ride and handling amongst the three, but it is very thirsty. Both Santa Fe and Sorento that we tested were using diesel and they were very good...

2015 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

  The new generation KIA Sorento has received more than its fair share of comments and reviews over the last year; so what can I write that can add any value? My perspective differ (in my opinion) on 3 definite points: - When I purchase this vehicle I did not have a specific budget in mind. My upper limit was 100k...

2016 Kia Sorento SLI (4x4) Review

Smooth,powerful and refined... Interior is better than previous model which I had. Only 4000 kms so far but loving it. Had a drive of a friends x5 the other day and I couldn't help thinking the Kia was better. The previous Sorento owned was the v6 and I liked the power, though getting used to the excellent torque of the diesel and the more sure footedness of the 4x4...

2014 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

Background As our family grew, we were looking for a practical seven-seater towards the end of last year (2014). Living in a regional area, with occasional dirt trails, we were looking for a SUV, but not a true offroader with truck-like dynamics. We test drove the Ford Territory, Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX9, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento, and Toyota Kluger...

2011 KIA SORENTO SLi Review

I bought my Sorento by default,I had a diesel Sportage ordered,but Kia after four months were unable to supply,I have now covered a hard 53,000 Kls in my default and have nothing but praise for it.On one trip I actually achieved 5.9 L.per 100K ,mainly in the low 6s around town high 7s low 8s.Still running first set of tyres,estimate they will do another 10-15,000Kl...

2012 KIA SORENTO Si (4x2) Review

Went to have a test drive of a Ford Territory, and saw that the local dealer had recently added a Kia franchise. Had a test drive of the V6 Sorento and was most impressed with its performance etc. Had also test driven a number of similar SUVs from other makers but the Kia to me was a much better vehicle, the size was right and in the end so was the price...
