Kia Sorento: £8k-£11k - Best cheap 4x4s
2.2 CRDI KX-2 (2010/10 reg, 78k miles)
Like its Hyundai Santa Fe sister car, Kia’s Sorento offers MPV-style practicality in a chunky SUV package. The Sorento doesn’t match its sibling for style, but as with all Kias, it comes loaded with standard kit. Go for a mid-spec KX-2 model, and you get all the goodies you could want, with two-zone climate control and heated leather seats.
Even better is the seven-seat interior, which has reasonable space in the rearmost row, while the Sorento has a decent amount of off-road ability. Hill hold and descent control are included, as is a 4WD diff lock.
