Okay, the Sorento is great all around, but a bit underpowered with the 2.4L engine. Take it for a ride with 2 heavy people, or 4. Then turn on the A/C full (you can leave the fan on low if it's too cold. Then head for a steep uphill. Then keep in mind if it would have enough power with a full tank of gas, and some luggage inside, plus maybe a roof carrier as well. Or, if you ever want to consider towing a boat, or a small trailer?
If it has enough power for you then, you'll be fine! If not move on to a V6
Remember this is not a Turbo 4cyl. it's just G.D.I. (Gas Direct Injection). By the way the G.D.I. Sorento engine has 191hp! not 175hp, that's in the Sportage/Tucson twins that don't have G.D.I.
Some previous Hyundai/Kia vehicles: 2002 Santa Fe LX V6 AWD, 2005 Tucson LX V6 AWD, 2010 Tucson GLS 2.4L AWD, 2011 Sportage EX 2.4L AWD, 2015 Sorento Ex V6 AWD
