    It's just a matter of picking a mid-size truck or a compact cute-ute.

    Sorento LX's don't have power mirrors as standard. No wood trim, manual a/c, less fancy audio, no fender flares, narrower tires, etc.

    But I'd still take it over the Tucson. Not that there's anything wrong with the Tucson, I just like the Sorento better.
    that's dissappointing. for over 1Mil, dapat naman power mirrors na sya. type ko din sorento

    An in-house upgrade package is available for the side mirrors.

    Sorento, for sure.

    Personally, I like driving the Tucson better, because it's more carlike and immediate, but the interior space isn't much more than you'd get in a sedan.

    I don't like the Sorento's soft, rolling suspension, but I find the pick-up of the engine okay. The rear seats seem a little more spacious than the Santa Fe's... I think the inclusion of a third row in the Santa Fe compromises second row legroom a little, but it's a non-issue (there's still lots of space).

    For the money, the Sorento is a better deal than most CUVs, considering the amount of space and the fact that it's a turbo-diesel. While I don't like the way it drives, from a practical point of view, it's worth the money.

    Niky,

    So kung Tucson vs. Sorento, sa Santa Fe ka?

    much as the others want the VGT equipped Sorento. if ever you're going to choose the Tucson CRDi...wait for the next gen 2.0L CRDi engine. while the current engine produces 110hp, the improved version creates about 136hp or as much as a GASOLINE fed 2006 Lancer GT makes.

    it is scheduled to be released soon on Europe.

    between the choices...i'd get the Sorento. i like it. rugged, macho, more metal for your buck as they say. classy reminds me of the gen2/2.5 Pajero.
