Kia Sorento 2017

The 2017 Kia Sorento range of configurations is currently priced from $24,995. Our most recent review of the 2017 Kia Sorento resulted in a score of 8.4 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributor Dan Pugh had this to say at the time: The Sorento is a functional family hauler that hits the sweet spot of practicality, value and safety and proves that space doesn't have to come at a premium. What's more, the cavernous cabin and seven seats delivered sufficient space for all, resulting in record levels of peace and quiet. A return on investment I would happily take any day.

This is what Dan Pugh liked most about this particular version of the Kia Sorento: Abundance of space & storage, Smooth and comfy ride, Engine

The Kia Sorento is also known as the Naza Sorento (Malaysia) and the Pyeonghwa Ppeokkuggi 2405 (North Korea) in markets outside Australia.

Kia Sorento 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Sorento 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does my 2017 Kia Sorento randomly lose power?

    It sounds like something electronic is randomly playing up and that’s causing the intermittent problem. Modern engines like these use a raft of sensors to keep the on-board computer informed of what’s going on and keep everything running smoothly and efficiently. If just one of those sensors stops working properly, all sorts of havoc can result.

    It’s a bit strange that the on-board diagnostics of the vehicle aren’t throwing up a relevant fault code when your mechanic interrogates the computer but, again, some of these modern electronic systems require some pretty specific software. Which means a trip to a Kia dealership might provide a more in-depth answer to what’s going on.

    The good news is that since 2014, Kias sold new in Australia have been covered by a seven-year warranty, so your Sorento is well and truly still under that factory cover. Which means it shouldn’t cost you anything to have the problem sorted out by Kia.

  • Ford Falcon: What's a good replacement?

    There’s no good reason to not buy a Falcon, parts will be available for many years yet. There’s the Commodore, but it too is out of production. Other than that there’s no similar sized car available for you. You need to think about getting an SUV, such as a Toyota Kluger, Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-5.
