We haven't tested this product in the Which? test lab, but here is a product overview based on our experiences of other models from this brand.

The first-generation Sorento, launched in 2003, was the first introduction to Kia for many Brits: it was a no-nonsense large 4x4, a 'proper' off-roader with an old-school body-on-frame construction, selectable 4WD and low-range gears, plus a limited-slip differential on upper-end versions. It has been liked for its towing capacity and workhorse capabilities, but is it still worth a look? Read on for our full review.
