'The 2009 Kia Borrego Is Bucking The Trend'

Remember the Kia Borrego? It was a body-on-frame SUV that was sold when people wanted crossovers. You might think that would make it Borrebad. But you're wrong. It's Borregood!


Watch with awe as the Kia Borrego strikes a pose on suburban Maryland streets. Look on as it hits the drag strip to lay down some simply blistering times. Gasp with anticipation as it "competently handles" in the slalom.

Calmly remember that barely anybody every bought one of these and you've probably never seen one in the world. Think confusedly as you realize that 57,000 people have watched this video about a Kia that I don't think I've ever seen in person.


MotorWeek Theater is our showcase of some of our favorite classic reviews from public television's finest motoring program. How does this video have 57,339 views on YouTube? How many people are looking for Borrego videos? Apparently that many.

As a European, I didn't even know that this thing existed. Did it sell?
