How Does My Kia Sorento Lease Work?
Benefits Of Leasing A Kia SorentoThe Sorento majors on practicality. It’s a genuine 7-seater with more space in the 3rd row than most of its competitors and a good-sized boot, too. In terms of length, the Sorento sits in between the Skoda Kodiaq and the Land Rover Discovery, which means it’s still relatively manageable around town. There’s also a broad range of engine options, which includes an ultra-efficient plug-in hybrid. Read our Kia Sorento PHEV review to see what our car experts thought of the plug-in model in more detail.
What’s The Kia Sorento Interior Like?
How Does The Sorento Drive?
For those who require 7 seats, the 3rd-row seating in the Sorento is about as spacious as it gets in an SUV. Although still best suited to children, adults will find themselves reasonably comfortable back there for short trips.
Further forward, there’s bags of room in the 1st and 2nd rows, plus plenty of cabin storage. The middle-row seats slide and recline – allowing you to trade boot space for additional rear legroom. Slide these back and even the tallest passengers will be able to get comfortable.
In a 5-seat configuration, the Sorento offers a generously-sized boot – 604 litres for the plug-in hybrid, 608 litres for the self-charging hybrid and 618 for the diesel. It’s a conveniently flat and square load space that’s particularly handy for carrying bulky items.
All versions come with 60/40-split folding seats in the middle row that can also be operated remotely with a set of buttons in the boot, giving a truly vast loading area.
Each of the engine options has different strengths when it comes to running costs. The HEV is the most affordable model to lease, and its claimed economy figure of 40.9mpg is relatively good for a large 4-wheel-drive SUV.
For those driving longer distances, the diesel could well be the most economical option in the real world. At 42.2mpg, it’s only averagely economical for its class, but it will deliver this all day long without any requirement to plug in.
However, if you’re in a position to keep the battery regularly topped up, the PHEV could be a spectacularly economical option. The official fuel economy figure of 176mpg is largely meaningless outside of a laboratory, but it is possible to get the mpg reading into 3 figures if you spend a lot of time driving at slower speeds.

The Kia Sorento Vs Competitors
Unlike a lot of its competitors, the Sorento comes with 7 seats, 4-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox as standard, even on the more affordable models. The PHEV option is still a relatively rare feature in this class too.
The Sorento’s closest competitor is the Hyundai Santa Fe. They share much of the same technology under the skin, so it’s no surprise that Hyundai offers comparable levels of performance and comfort. What’s worth noting is that the Santa Fe is available in the 2-wheel-drive form if you go for the HEV, which makes it slightly more economical if you don’t need the rough-road capability.
Elsewhere, the Skoda Kodiaq offers even more boot space and more agile handling, but the 3rd-row seating isn’t quite as spacious as the Sorento and you’ll need to opt for one of the higher-spec models to match the Kia’s equipment levels. Meanwhile, premium alternatives such as the Land Rover Discovery and the Volvo XC90 are a significant step up in cost, but they boast nicer interiors and more comfort.
Kia as a brand has a strong reputation for reliability. Plus, the Sorento is covered by one of the most comprehensive warranties in the business.
