What We Think: Kia brings value anywhere it goes. With the 2009 Kia Borrego, that doesn't change. But with cheap gas prices hard to find, this Kia midsize SUV is going to be a tough sell, even though fuel economy is high on the Borrego priority list.
Overview: 2009 Kia Borrego
As you review your choices for a midsize sport-utility vehicle (which not many are doing these days, considering the shortage of cheap gasoline prices), you might find the 2009 Kia Borrego SUV wedging into your brain right as you try to concentrate on a 2009 Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder, or GMC Acadia. The new Borrego is the biggest SUV that Kia has ever made and offers three rows of seating.
Equipped with a generous list of standard features at a very competitive price, the Kia Borrego looks good on paper. And with strong fuel economy and a pair of strong engines, a Borrego feels perfectly at home on the road as well.
