Four trim levels are available, ranging from entry-level KX-1 up to the halo KX-4. As standard, the entry-level Sorento gets 17in alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, privacy glass, rear spoiler and roof rails on the outside, while inside there is manual air conditioning controllable from the front and rear of the cabin, Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and cruise control.
Upgrade to the KX-2 trim adorns your Sorento with 18in alloys, a leather upholstery, front and rear heated seats, parking sensors, self-levelling suspension, dual-zone climate control and Kia's 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system complete with sat nav and a rear-view camera. While the KX-3 adds xenon headlights, panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable driver's seat, lane departure warning and an 8.0in touchscreen system.
Topping the range is the KX-4 trimmed Sorento, which comes with luxuries such as 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control and headlights, ventilated front seats and blind spot detection as standard.
Kia's touchscreen icons are large and easy to hit, and the generous provision of shortcut keys on either side of the screen saves you getting lost in menus. Sound quality from the audio system was adequate but not outstanding for a premium system.
