Reviewed: 2005 Kia Sorento

4dr SUV 192-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range

Why the 2005 Kia Sorento?

Materials & workmanship

Vehicle used high quality parts in construction. Won SUV of the year for 2004. Used actual ladder box frame, not unibody.

Price or payments

Best price for what you get on the market today. EX model 4x4 for 25K. No other manufacturer can match it.

Exterior styling

Looks like an SUV without being too boxy. Quick looks can mistake it for a BMW X series or a Merc M series. Build tolerances are very tight.

Interior styling

Quality. Firm, supportive seats. Nice layout of guages and controls. Plenty of leg and head room in the front and back.

Reliability & durability

47K miles and no issues. Kept on strict Kia service plan.

Why Not the 2005 Kia Sorento?

Fuel economy

Getting 14-15 MPG out of a V6. Wish it were closer to 20 MPG.
