The Kia Sorento entered a brand-new generation for the 2021 model year, which means that good deals are offered on the previous generation, which is still a very competent vehicle that presents a good value proposition on the pre-owned market.
Lots of interior space
A pre-owned Kia Sorento is a great choice for families or buyers who need a lot of passenger and cargo space in their next vehicle. This is because the Sorento has long been one of the most spacious vehicles in its category and one of the rare ones to be available with a third row of seats. This means that the Sorento can transport up to seven passengers and it also means that everyone on board will be more comfortable than in most competing vehicles because of the more generous legroom and shoulder room. In the cargo compartment, a pre-owned Sorento can carry up to 320 litres of luggage when all seats are in use or 1,099 litres when the third row is folded down. If larger items need to be carried, the second row also folds to reveal up to 2,081 litres of space behind the driver.
The Kia Sorento is a very reliable SUV that has received multiple Initial Quality and Vehicle Reliability Awards from JD Power over the last few years due to the very low number of problems owners have with their vehicles. The Sorento is at the forefront of Kia’s push for reliability and quality, which is why it has often been named the most reliable vehicle in its segment, while the brand as a whole won the Initial Quality award many times among mainstream brands. This means that pre-owned Sorento models are likely to be more reliable and less expensive to own than many competing models for many years.
An impressive fuel consumption
A pre-owned Kia Sorento offers an impressively low fuel consumption for a vehicle of its size and format since its standard 4-cylinder engine only needs 9,0 L/100 km on the highway, despite the Sorento being one of the largest vehicles in its class. With the first models of the current generation entering the second-hand market, even more fuel-efficient options are now available such as the standard 2,5L engine that uses 8,4 L/100 km on the highway or the first Sorento hybrid models, which have a city fuel consumption of only 6,4 L/100 km.
