  • I like it. Very clean and elegant design. I hope high prices of gas don’t turn away people from buying it!

  • I love the style it is an eye catcher. I am looking for a suv that does not take alot of gas. This one the first time I would put toyota second and kia first.You’ve probably guessed I am a toyota owner who is about to give her toyota for a beautiful borrego.
