Set to be unveiled later this month at the Detroit Motor Show, the all new Kia Borrego is the largest SUV yet produced by the Korean manufacturer, dwarfing both the Sportage and Sorento.

Though unconfirmed for Australian release, the Borrego is based (loosely) on Hyundai’s now outdated Terracan’s ladder type chassis and will be sold in many guises internationally including Mohave in South Korea.

Powered by a choice of either 3.8-litre V6 (as seen in Granduer) or the all new Tau 4.6-litre V8 (as will be seen in Hyundai’s Genesis), the Borrego certainly won’t want for power, though the economy stakes may suffer with no diesel planned at this stage.


A versatile seven seater with conservative and practical styling, the Borrego aims to increase awareness of Kia’s market position and further broaden the 2008 range with both Borrego and Cee’d joining the line-up.

It’s rumoured that Borrego will make an appearance at Australian motor shows  this year.
