Kia Sorento shares the same platform as the erstwhile Hyundai Santa Fe and therefore its natural rivals are cars like Toyota Fortuner, the Ford Endeavour and the Skoda Kodiaq.
Like the Kodiaq the Sorento too is based on a monocoque construction which makes it easier to drive than the bulkier body-on-frame sport utility vehicles (SUVs).
The car in typical Kia fashion does not try too hard to look remarkable. It has an air of elegance to it and that goes hand in glove with Sorento’s intent of being a premium family SUV.
Will it come to India? Quite unlikely considering that Sorento is on the last leg. However, the next generation model could.
