Which is the best value seven-seat SUV for under $40k?

Answered by CarsGuide 31 May 2018

You should be able to get an example of the current crop of large seven-seat SUVs for under $40k, and we recommend the Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-9, Toyota Kluger and Hyundai Santa Fe, in that order. 

You'll also be able to get a new mid-size SUV for well under that price, with Mitsubishi offering the base Outlander with seven seats for $29,990 drive away at the moment. 

You can also get the Honda  CR-V VTi-L for just under $40k and the Nissan X-Trail. Our pick would be the Honda, but bear in mind it lacks a lot of active safety equipment fitted standard to the other brands.

Kia Sorento 2018: Are they reliable and how many km's would you expect them to do?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 May 2018

Properly looked after (as in, doing mechanical services by the book) Kia Sorentos shouldn't require too many expensive parts replaced during their several-hundred-thousand-kilometre lifetime. The key to having vehicles last is to drive them sympathetically and have them serviced regularly. All cars will break down or have a failure at some point as they do wear out eventually, but you can limit this by not driving like a New York cabbie, and having a qualified mechanic look after your car.

Kia Sorento: Is it a good car?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2018

Under the strictest terms of what makes a good "car" the Kia doesn't really cut the mustard. However, Kia's Sorento is a nicely equipped SUV that can ferry a family in comfort for a competitive price point. So, if you're looking for a small sedan that is excellent at high-performance driving, look elsewhere.

What SUV would you recommend between $50-60k?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Apr 2018

All diesel engines today have turbochargers, and believe me you wouldn’t want to drive a non-turbo diesel. Of those you mention I would go for a Mitsubishi ASX, or consider a Kia Sorento.

What is a good cars for an 80 year old?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Apr 2018

An SUV would seem to be the best choice given your concerns about getting in and out of the car. Most carmakers now offer FWD versions as well as all-wheel drive models, and without knowing what your budget limitation is I would think an SUV like a Mitsubishi ASX, Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester or Kia Sorento would fit your needs well.
