Starting life at the turn of the century as a compact SUV before being reclassified as a mid-size crossover SUV in 2009 is the Kia Sorento.

It's one of many SUVs on offer from the South Korean automobile manufacturer including the Sportage and Telluride.

Original examples of the Sorento were sold with the option of a full-time four-wheel drive paired with a low-range gearbox to aid in off-road capabilities.

Later on with the introduction of the second generation in 2009, the off-road aids were removed and the weight dropped considerably.

Underneath these new models is the same platform used by the Santa Fe and Optima.

Safety ratings for the Kia Sorento have improved with each development of the chassis, the most recent scoring good for everything apart from the headlight quality on one trim.

Sales have climbed year-on-year globally as the car continues to improve both aesthetically and under the hood - sales in the second half of its life are around double the first half.

The most modern version of the SUV released in 2020 is offered mainly with diesel power plants under the hood, automatic transmissions and a hybrid option for the smaller engine choice.
