Kia Sorento Diesel 2.2 CRDi (A) Review
Recalling our wonderful experience with the Kia Sorento, we take the diesel version for a short spin to see how it fares and boy, were we impressed.

The Kia Sorento Diesel was facelifted on Jan 2018.
Read our review of the facelifted version.

From Cerato BD to Sorento UM `
It's an upgrade from Cerato to this Sorento. The space no matter human or goods is really fabulous, the pick up acceleration is good too

Breaks down all the time `
I have a 5 year old Sorento. Was great for the first 4 years. Now it is in the service center every 2months. Yes every 2 months. Right now it is with CnC and they have said it will take 3 weeks to fix with no car replacement as they have to import a part. I bought a Kia because I thought it was reliable and easy to fix. My car is out for one month..... Very costly.

Never Thought I would own a KIA?! `
Owning this fabulous car for 6 months now and ready to put some candid review. To be honest , I am a super Japan car Fan and only own Jap cars since 1996 till today. I often discourage people to own Korean car due to its image previously. Having budget of 250k, this was really a enormous surprise car for me and like below comments I first came across this in car expo and thought will just stage for my wife in order to steer her to my BMW X, tourer or GL series later. Maybe to a E or 5 Series also.. Went with Mrs. First and was super impressed with the top notch quality inside the car. Well..Things did not change yet and I go with plan I visited Merc, BM, Audi, Lexus etc. To test drive all cars according to plan.. Seriously the Price of Sorento had entered some Conti range and my brain begin to behave like "Are u nuts, pay this kind price for KIA?! Might as well get A4.." Finally when I narrow on either E200 or X3(mainly for the brand to how lian which many sporean does..) with their super good overtrade, I decide to do some leisure local and overseas all regions' research on this Sorento which leave me an almost near perfect impression. That is not good enough, I went and test drive multiple times with different people and feedbacks etc. Feel this was comparable to Conti , in fact its exactly a conti spec and make. So the only difference between BM, Merc and this was the price of the badge that I need to pay if I take the former. I forgo the badge craving and decided to get this... Am enjoying the ride now and it also serve the family well.. Will get a second pre-own conti car from difference in price I save.

Lovely Stable Car!!! `
Had tested drive the Sorento twice and totally in love with it! In fact, had almost paid for the deposit but changed my mind at the very last min signing another make MPV instead. Here's my review as a car "Goondu" Below; Spec I don't know, only the driving feel. High seating gives the driver a bird's eye view hence giving confidence. Drive was smooth with power. Stable turning and U-Turning with responsive accelerator. My teenage girls were with me, and they were super wow over by Sorento and said this is the "ONE"! They like many of the features inside eg. Electrical ports at 2nd and last row for phone charging, panoramic sunroof (of course), comfy seats even the last row. Although Sorento isn't my final choice, but guess I will always lust after this beautiful car....
