looks

Strictly speaking of looks. YEs. The truck does look good. Actually better design than many of the other SUV's on the road. As for me even thinking about buying one ------ NO! I'd spend the extra cash and buy something else. Even a little RAV4 - I think the current gen looks good. Better than the Sorento. I have a feeling, it's gonna need that good warranty.

actually i was having a talk with my friend Fil (Eurostyle) about this today. it's quite interesting. the vehicle looks a mix between a ford focus and a benz SUV. the front looks like a ford the back looks like the benz. it looks nice. i read the specs on the thing it's quite convincing. i like it actually. still would take an X5 over it anyday of the week. it sounds a lot sounder than my crappy winter beater (2000 honda CRV) the crv has so many problems. it's lacks so much power for an suv.
all in all i like the kia sorento. has my 2 thumbs up

design

A Porsche designed Kia?? Hmmm.... Sounds like an oxymoron to me. But still, it does have nice lines. As far as looks go, I do like it.

actually as far as i know some of korean manufacture's car are
designed byeuropean/japanese.

SM5 is based on maxima
equse is based on s class benz
and daewoo cars are designed from itali design(I think)
and sorento is probably one of those too.
