I've just booked a Sorento today. Lookin' forward to collect it. laugh.gif wub.gif

My review......
Mang! the car is full of tech. Before this my mind was closed for Korean cars but after test driving it, I know this is the right car for me. Compared to CRV, Fortuner , Pajero Sport, X-Trail, Even it's own brother the Santa FE, Tucson & the recently launched Sportage, I can safely tell u all that it is the pick of the bunch. Style it is more beautiful than it's rival & very comfy. Performance no doubt, it's far more powerful than even the 2.7 Fortuner.


WOnder if this Optima is good. But my verdict is that it'll most likely do with the Theta II engine rather than the GDi. laugh.gif

Maybe masz94 need a bigger CC 7 seated SUV...
If he compare to like Fortuner, X-rail, Pajaro Sport, Sante FE or Korando i think Sorento is a good choice also

I've tested both and somewhat I feel the Sorento more stylish & better specced. Powerwise the Sportage oso not powerful as Sorento eventough Sorento is heavier. The Sportage is oso quite small & I prefer 7 seat SUV.

Feature wise, the Sorento oso got self-levelizing suspension which meant that if 1 side of the car is higher than the other one, it will counter balance the car height.

During the test driving I really pushed both cars kaw-kaw. Full throttle, I managed to push the Sorento to 115 kp/h in second gear, whereas Sportage will only do 100 kp/h in second gear.

During hard u-turns, I did feel that the Sportage got some body roll but controllable. Sorento meanwhile do the same thing better. Sorento oso got better ground clearance.

That is the reason why I choose the Sorento over Sportage...... icon_rolleyes.gif laugh.gif drool.gif blush.gif

I don't think so coz The Sportage is already priced at 138K. This Optima will perhaps venture into the 140K category. hmm.gif

It cant be more expensive than a SUV. If 140K it will die an immediate death.

if the price is at Civic range I'll definitely choose Optima over Civic as I believe Kia has more to offer than Civic for the same price.
