My family and I were lucky enough to take a 2018 Kia Sorento Premium on a road trip around the South Island. Check out some of the photos plus a competitor comparison here.

I first had a chance to drive the Allspace alongside around six or seven competitor vehicles in the 7-seater market, and was left confident that the Allspace was a top contender (see that in our Polo and Allspace dealer launch post). What stood out about the Allspace was its complete package of premium finish, comfortable driving, surprisingly powerful performance, excellent driver-assist systems and safety, and executive-without-being-obnoxious style.
