Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento is the small Korean carmaker's largest SUV, and serves as its flagship.

Its platform is based on the structure that underpins the company's Carnival seven seat people mover, and it's often cross-shopped against parent company Hyundai's Santa Fe, though the two are quite different in design and specification. The Sorento is Kia's only seven seat SUV, and comes with a choice of diesel or petrol engines and front- or all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations starting from $43,490 for the Sorento Si (4x2). In AWD spec, it's reasonably competent off road, as well, thanks to a 50:50 drive lock, as available on the top-spec Sorento GT-LINE (4x4) at $59,490.

This vehicle is also known as Naza Sorento (Malaysia), Pyeonghwa Ppeokkuggi 2405 (North Korea).
