Apart from the cost, the Sorento is an SUV, completely different type of car IMO (I never looked at the Mazda CX-7 nor the Mazda CX-9 when comparing with the Mazda5 as an example)...

can't see the comparison between the Sorento and a Mazda 5 (or even a Rondo), they are totally different vehicles, if you were comparing Mazda products to the Sorento, like coolmazda said you would compare the CX-7 and 9 and I would also add the Tribute.

as well as a new design alloy wheels, they added the ECO-minder indicator, that's all I could find when I checked out a 2010 model at my local dealer. Still selling well for them, they ran out of 2009 models late last year.

I guess I was looking at the basic size and interior dimensions, which are about the same between the sorento and mazda5. The label of "SUV" or "micro-minivan" doesn't mean too much too me...just what they're capable of doing.

#851 of 859 10 Brands That May Disappear in 2011
Jul 09, 2010 (12:24 pm)
Kia Motors Corp. is one of the two car brands of Hyundai of South Korea. It has always been a marginal brand. Its stable mate, Hyundai USA, has a reputation for high quality cars like the Sonata and Genesis. Kia sells "low rent" cars and SUV nameplates like the Sorento and Rio. As GM and Ford (NYSE: F - News) have already discovered, it is expensive to maintain multiple brands and storied car names, including Pontiac, Saturn and Mercury, are disappearing. Most Kia cars sell for $14,000 to $25,000. Hyundai has several cars in the same price range. Hyundai's Sonata has quickly become one of the best-selling cars in America, and its Genesis flagship model competes with mid-sized BMWs and Mercedes. The parent company will take a page from several other global car companies and dump its weakest brand

isn't it the other way around, the Rio is better than Accent, Sorento is better than Santa Fe. i remember couple years ago the Hyundai Elantra only had 2 airbags and no ABS, and the Kia Spectra had standard 6 airbags and ABS.
the Chevy/Pontiac twin brands worked well for GM until it was hit hard by the recent economic crisis, but Hyundai/Kia took advantage of it and gained market share.
i'm not sure if the writer of this article knows what he is saying.
