The Kia Sorento is a large seven-seat SUV and the diesel-only GT-Line sits at the top of the range at $58,990.

Standard features include the leather seats, an eight-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon stereo with digital radio. There’s also sat nav, a 360-degree camera, dual-zone climate control, proximity unlocking, an auto tailgate, powered front seats, tinted rear glass, alloy pedals, LED auto headlights with LED DRLs, a sun roof, heated front and rear seats, roof rails, a rear spoiler and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The GT-Line comes only with the 2.2-litre diesel which makes 147kW and 441Nm. The six-speed automatic transmission in the old car has now been replaced by an eight-speed auto.

Kia says you can expect to use 7.6L/100km of diesel under combined driving conditions.

Scoring a maximum five-star ANCAP rating, advanced safety kit includes AEB, lane keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert.

Three top tether mounts and two ISOFIX points can be found in the second row only.
