When I first took delivery of the Kia Sorento I was struck by the sheer presence of the vehicle. Kia have developed an attractive as well as serious 4x4 at a realistic price with a standard specification to shame more 'prestigious' brands.
We tested the 3.5 litre V6 XS model with standard automatic transmission which at £21,995 is excellent value for money within the competitive 4x4 market.
The Sorento has won numerous awards in the UK, USA and Europe and we road tested it around Eire to see if it lived up to its formidable reputation.
