Collected my new Sorento KX3 SatNav Auto today from NMG in Norwich. First impressions are excellent. Tremendous service from NMG. Now I have to do 1200 miles before towing my Sterling solitaire caravan.I will endeavour to keep the site updated with towing behaviour and fuel consumptioins

Hi, sounds like we have the same model, only done 400 miles but I am struggling to get any where near the fuel consumption figures stated by KIA, How are you finding the fuel consumption

i have a KX3 manual. It gets about 45mpg on the motorways (60-65mph) & gets about 38mpg towing. Towing is not brillaint as the caravan tends too swing alot. I have opted to put the back row of seats down and fill the boot with gear to get more weight in the car. It is better when I do this, but defeats the idea of a 7 seater really.
Around town I tend to get 33mpg which is a great improvement over the old big boy sorrento (57 plate) that I used to have. Unfortunately this KX3 is not as good at towing.

By the way I am now having a few clutch problems so beware!!!
