Actually I looked into this when comparing various vehicles, I don't tend to change my tow vehicle very often.
The first three years of Sorento ownership you would be as well standing in the shower tearing up tenners. The depreciation is fearfully large. However after three years it slows down and drops at approx the same amount as a Landy of similiar cost.
I bought a three year old vehicle at around 50% of new cost, for the same money it would have been a five year old equivalent. since depreciation drops at the same amount from now and the vehicles are worth much the same in two, three ten or 12 years old I reckon I am better off. The actual vehicle is still two years younger all the way through this time.
My only reservation as I said will be longevity and in a few years I'll have a better idea of this, other than that I don't regret the choice of vehicle despite having a badge that apparently tells eveyone I have a big c**ck. I think that what you meant surely?
