2009 Kia Ratings, Reviews and Awards

South Korean car manufacturer, fuel-efficient designer, and affordable lineup are all ways to describe Kia. The leader in value vehicles gave those looking for a seven-passenger vehicle a new choice in 2009 with the Borrego's comfortable three-row seating and numerous safety features from hill assist to downhill brake control. The Borrego was the first Kia model to feature a V8 engine in the US and offered a 3.8 or 4.6-liter option, helping it tow its maximum load of 5,000 pounds. Meanwhile, the Rio and Rio5 were updated with improved audio equipment, and steering wheel mounted controls. The Kia Spectra and Spectra5 saw the addition of active front headrests to deuce whiplash in a collision, while the EX and SX gained cruise control as a standard feature. Despite all of these fantastic additions to such an affordable line of vehicles, Kia left the Sportage, Rondo, and Optima almost untouched for their 2009 rollout.
