    Iíd take a Sorento over any PPV. Our familyís 2010 Sorento needs replacement soon, maybe this new one will be the best candidate.

    More technical details below. It really is bigger than the current Sorento.

    Kia claims middle-seating-row passengers have up to 994mm of headroom and 1034mm of legroom, which for context is the same headroom and 33mm more legroom than a Hyundai Santa Fe. Third-row occupants get 935mm of headroom and 752mm legroom (18mm/6mm more than the Hyundai).

    Middle-seat amenities include pull-up sun blinds, vents, cupholders, and a smartphone tray. The second-row seats now slide up to 45mm further, creating a wider point of entry to the third row. There is also a new grab handle inside the C-pillar, and third-row air vents and storage cubbies. Pictures show four ISOFIX child-seat anchor points.

    For second-row passengers, two USB charging sockets are integrated into the backs of the two front seats, with a third found at the rear of the front-row centre console. Both third-row passengers also have their own charging points, meaning all seven passengers can keep their device charged.

    Kia also claims (VDA) a massive 821 litres of boot space with the third seating row folded flat, and 187L with all seven seats in use. With the back two seat rows folded, you get 2011L. These figures are, respectively, up 216L/45L/349L greater than Kiaís claim for the outgoing Sorento model.

    Controls in the sidewall of the boot also let users fold down the second-row seat backs remotely by button.
