Your in luck my friend, I just finished pounding the sorento over the week end in the Top Gear 4x4 proving grounds in tanay biggrin.gif there is a lot to say about the vehicle mostly great. Ill make a full report later.but initially....
-Rides better than a fortuner
-Available in crdi diesel and V 6 gas
-quiet engine and drive train
-Tires SUCK change them when you get one!
-Interior styling is much to be desired but liveable
-the fortuner is still king in terms of ground clearance but approach departure and break over angle is in equal footing
-a good option if you dont want to wait 8 months for a fortuner 1.3 m for diesel 1.2 gas
-I wouldnt mind owning one
