A colleague of mine went to the car auctions in Nottingham last week and told me he saw a very nice 03 plate Sorento sell for £13700. He said that the book price for this car was about £12800. My reaction is WOW cars never sell above book price at auctions. It appears the Sorento is holding it's value particularly well, now is this just a temporary thing while the waiting time for Sorentos is about eight weeks or are they now becoming a prized possesion? :eek:

If you look in the back of Auto Express at there predicted value for the Sorento after 3 years, they say between 58 & 60% ....... now that's BMW territory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRING IT ON !!!!!!!!
Rumour has it that a completly new Sorento is already on the cards for the end of 2006 ( again Auto Express have had an insider from Kia say this ) so for obvious reasons this will effect the re-sale value next year.

It has been known for a while that a replacement is being worked on. It will share the basics with the new Chevrolet 4X4.

Unlikely to share anything with Chevy, Kia or Hyundai don;t have any links with GM.
The next Sorento will be a Hyundai-Kia effort, the current Sorento is a Kia design and platform,. as it was signed off prior to the Hyundai takeover.

Well that was the latest rumours. It's like the new Subaru 4X4 sharing the basics with the new Saab 4X4. On second thought Saab’s new 2005 97X luxury SUV is derived from a GM platform that underpins the TrailBlazer, et al. If you look at the SX3 (Chevy) see how 'Sorento' it looks. Either way a new engine is needed for both petrol and diesel.

Saab's 9-7x is indeed based on a GM platofrm, as are all current SAAB models being a GM owned company, the 9-6x will be based around the new Subaru, which is a bit more of a joint effort than the lighting warmed over WRX that is the SAAB 9-2x, both 9-2/7's are US models only.
