Starting to look really good! I love that Kia is finally getting the front roofline kink onto all their cars. Light design is looking lit. I should write up some fun info on the Borrego soon, like how that body-on-frame, three-row SUV weighs less than all comparable G80 sedans. Yep, even with the V8 and 4WD versus a G80 5.0 AWD. Same city fuel economy because of that!

The tester is running the upsized Sportage wheels. Looks like the Telluride is FWD-based so a Traverse, Highlander, Ascent competitor. That means a mild-hybrid diesel can be available right at launch in the US. We are still a year or so away from the RWD cars getting diesel availability in the US.

And picture of a 2019 refreshed Sportage for ya.

*Oh, for those that didnt know, this is the roofline kink Kias have at the windshield:

The F150 has it too. Just random facts I keep stashed and never get to use...
