I don't think this one is suitable for the Sorento 2.5D

It needs a 5/30 or 10/40 with A3/B4 spec or higher. I think the 15/40 Castrol is a lower spec A3/B3. According to Opie oils the 15/40 has been super-ceeded by the 10/40 which is both higher spec and better cold start properties. Hence the low Asda price.

You will get away with an A3/B3 for a light Diesel engine, the Sorento is not a light Diesel.

Check the back of the bottle for the Spec of the 15/40
