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. The 2010 Toyota 4Runner is a brawny “true truck” worth serious consideration if tough off-roading capability for regular trail driving is one of your requirements—and it won’t sacrifice comfort the rest of the time.
