    2015 Kia Sorento Platinum Review

    Paul Gover - 28 Aug 2015 -

    It’s rare for a new arrival to spring a surprise on me. Usually, what we get is what I know, from the Suzuki Celerio through to the Ferrari 488. So I was expecting the Kia Sorento to be big and boring, well priced and well backed, with most of its ‘stuff’ carried over from the Hyundai Santa Fe that fills exactly the same slot in the blue team from South Korea.

    2015 Kia Sorento V6 Review

    Peter Hitchener - 18 Aug 2015 -

    The new 2015 Kia Sorento might well be Behind the Wheel's Car of the Year, if not, certainly one of the surprise packages of the year so far.

    Kez Casey - Aug 2015 -

    The skinny: Kia's new Sorento takes the leap from "family-friendly", to "family first", with a bigger interior, better noise insulation, and increased safety.

    Alborz Fallah - 5 Jun 2015 -

    On paper, the 2015 Kia Sorento presents all the right ingredients to make the perfect seven-seater family SUV, but how does that translate to real world ability?

    Kia Sorento 2015 Review

    It's hard to understand how Kia's Sorento is so frequently overlooked beside its more expensive rivals, but the big seven-seat SUV is back again for a third go of it, and this time it's bigger, quieter, and promises to be better to drive. It also has the best interior the Korean car maker has ever made. But is all this enough to stop Australians buying one of its rivals?

    2015 Kia Sorento First Drive Review

    David McCowen - 5 Jun 2015 -

    The Sorento has always been a big deal for Kia. 

    The South Korean manufacturer’s flagship SUV has more gear than anything else in its range, forming the ultimate expression of Kia’s transformation from cut-price alternative to genuine value contender.

    This new model is bigger than before, having grown longer and wider in hope of becoming more attractive to buyers, though it looks more like the Carnival people mover than anything else on the road.

    More Space and a Relaxed Driving Ambience

    Paul Murrell - 5 Jun 2015 -

    It’s easy to see why large SUVs like the Sorento are replacing large family cars; they are more practical, more flexible and very good value. All round, the Sorento is an impressive package with the dynamics, styling, safety and quality to challenge some of its highly respected competitors.

    New From the Ground Up

    5 Jun 2015 -

    The frenetic struggle taking place in the large SUV segment has seen new contenders from Nissan (Pathfinder) and Toyota (Kluger) raise the stakes over the past 12 months, but now the Kia Sorento puts a bomb under the two Japanese rivals. Quieter, more spacious and more driveable than its predecessor, the new Sorento boasts a five-star ANCAP rating, and local suspension calibration that the two Japanese rivals can’t match.

    Premium Korean Leads the Way

    Tony O'Kane -

    The model that preceded it was one of the better choices in its segment, but the new Sorento sets the bar even higher. And while it may be more expensive than before, it's far from the priciest option in the large SUV space.

    Either way, who would have thought that two "value oriented" Korean brands would end up selling two of the nicest Large SUVs in Australia? Korean cars have come a long way.
