You may soon no longer count the various facelifts. The latest Sorento is recognizable to the obliquely cut fields for the fog lamps. However, with 8 cm more wheelbase and 10 cm more length, it's justly a new generation now. At the same time the car has become lower by 6 cm. With slightly increased performance and decreased drag coefficient this results in 10 km/h higher top speed.
The manufacturer claims that there is even more head height in the passengers compartment now. The car makes a good impression despite the much reprimanded plastic processing lately. The floor is flat and space for a seat bench rear is also available, at least with safety air bags and own speakers. But it still looks despite new grill rather solid than extravagant, needs some styling therefore in order to meet the name of the Italian coastal town (but with two 'r').
Only for exclusive off-road use the car will probably not bought. The long wheelbase with not sufficient ground clearance is in the way. However, it can withstand deep lakes up to 45 cm. No, the domain of the Sorento is the journey with a lot of luggage and/or large family. For the seven-seater the payload has been increased again. The chassis still remains on the comfortable side. 01/15
