Which Kia Models Have AWD?



The new KIA models offering AWD are designed to help you drive over off-road conditions with ease. They also handle better in rainy or snowy weather.

KIA Sportage

The KIA Sportage, in particular, is a KIA SUV that comes with AWD on each of its different trims. This particular vehicle was even named the Top Safety Pick and is certainly worth owning.

KIA Sorento

The KIA Sorento is another KIA model with AWD on all its different trims. If you need a vehicle for family use, then this is the one for you. It accommodates seven passengers, and the 2018 and 2019 iterations even come with third-row seating.

KIA Stinger

In recent times, these were the only two KIA Models with AWD. In 2018, the company introduced the KIA Stinger with AWD too. This is the first sedan from KIA to offer this capability.

Benefits of KIA AWDs

You would do well to own a KIA AWD model because such variants offer improved traction and make for the perfect options to drive through tough weather conditions safely. AWDs do not slide on the road even when the conditions are slippery due to snow or rain. 

Another reason to opt for KIA AWDs is that they handle beautifully on off-road trails. They are easy on the brakes and offer excellent acceleration as well as suspension. Finally, you should opt for an AWD from KIA since, even though it bears a higher price tag initially when you do decide to sell it, it would retain higher resale value.

The KIA Sportage is not only an excellent AWD but also comes with a host of technological and safety features. It delivers an impressive 23 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway too.

The KIA Sorento is quite popular amongst those looking for a third-row SUV (midsize) that can perform exceptionally in all kinds of weather conditions. Powered by a V6 engine, it churns out an impressive 290 HP and 242 pounds/feet of torque and can tow up to 5000 pounds without any hassle.
