When you drill right down, Kia’s Sorento is arguably THE best value SUV on the market right now, especially the top of the range, diesel only, GT-Line model driven at $58,990. Compare it with anything you like at up to twice the price from Germany, the US or Japan  and the Kia comes out trumps on most scores. More luxury, [...]

Kia Australia has an updated version of its much awarded Sorento large SUV available now in dealerships nationwide. A consistently popular model, Kia is hoping the 2018 upgrade puts the Sorento seven-seat SUV on even more family shopping lists, and after sampling the vehicle this week I am sure that will the case. https://youtu.be/G91P_t1-wrc Exterior Changes to the outside [...]

    Yes, oh YES: space, good ride, well equipped Not so much: no auto wipers, no CarPlay or DAB radio It’s big, and with bling wheels, it’s bold. It rides with a plushness that should cost bigger bucks, so apart from a few little niggles, is pretty near perfect. The website says “Exclusive to Sorento GT-Line are Factory Side [...]

  We loved Kia’s Sorento when we drove it in Port Douglas earlier in the year (read about it here). I hoped it would be as nice to drive back home in Sydney. It sounds silly but sometimes a car at launch doesn’t measure up when you drive in in the real world. I’m happy to report the Sorento Petrol [...]

  Kia had a few chaps in for a quiet lunch to discuss the state of the nation: K900- an excellent product and much awarded but no plans to bring it here as the sales of sister brand Hyundai’s Genesis has been slow with only 256 units being sold since release. 65K for a Hyundai is a big ask. That’s [...]

    Yes Yes Yes oh YES: classy design, lots of inclusions, smooth quiet ride, safest SUV available Not so much: Stereo in top model doesn’t sound as good as it looks, a bit heavy I love this time of year. The cold crisp evenings, heavily scented with wood smoke, are spent sipping on a noggin or two of whisky [...]

Do you remember Kias of old? They were the kinds of cars that struggling students spoke about in hushed tones behind their hands at loud parties. Even when brand new, they looked a little old. Haven’t they done well since then? The range now looks positively sexy and the large SUV is no exception. It’s been given a gentle waving [...]
