what tools am I missing in the rear storage cubby?

Was looking today in the rear cubby and was reminded that I am missing some parts. Any able to tell me what tools go in the blank sections (if anything?). Just wondering if its something needed to change a tire or if I have everything I need to do it.

Thanks!

You are not missing anything in a US vehicle. In other markets they have a screwdriver in the lower left space, a screw in tow hook in the lower right. I don't remember what goes in the slot below the lug wrench.

Where would that tow hook screw in to? I can’t find winching locations on the Sorento.

My 2019 Sorento doesn't have anything like that.

Like 17LX said, the US market Sorento does not have the screw driver or the tow hooks.

My LX has one tow point on the back bumper above the exhaust pipe. Pretty useless without the screw in hook that the US vehicles don't have.

I was asking where the winching points are on the car. I guess anywhere on the frame you can hook to?
