Car Profiles - Kia Sorento

KIA SORENTO

Aiming its sights towards the Grand Santa Fe and Explorer, the Sorento has packed lots of features for its price (which is stratospheric for some). If you can't swallow the P2.3M price, cheaper low end variants are on the pipeline.

The Good: A relaxing vehicle to drive
The Bad: Expensive

Price Range: P1,895,000-P2,300,000
Our Rating: ***
