The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Kia Borrego isn’t the type of vehicle that’s especially popular or fashionable at this time, but it’s a home run against the competition. If you’re after serious off-roading ability, the Pathfinder is more than capable—otherwise, there are comfier options available.
