Why Should You Choose a Model with Kia AWD?

What is it that sets the Kia AWD system apart? Most drivers in the Bartlett area know that all-wheel drive provides superior traction, lowering the risks posed by dangerous road conditions and less-than-ideal weather. However, unless you've done your research, you might not realize how Kia AWD does its job!

The AWD models in our lineup rely on front, rear, and center differentials in order to deliver the ideal balance of power to each wheel. With AWD equipped, your vehicle will use computer sensors to monitor the traction in each tire, and send additional power to the wheels with the best grip, whenever you need a boost. 

Unlike otherwise comparable four-wheel drive systems, Kia AWD activates only when it's needed, and that means you'll save fuel while enjoying a more engaging drive. Other benefits of this system include superior off-road capability and higher resale values, if you decide to sell or trade in your vehicle at a later date.

Kia AWD SUVs and Crossovers

Crossovers and SUVs are favored by drivers who value security and capability, and the models made by Kia are certainly no exceptions! Here, we've highlighted both of the Kia AWD SUVs in our lineup today:

  • The Kia Sportageoffers available all-wheel drive on a variety of different trim levels. The 2020 model has already been awarded a five-star overall safety rating from the independent experts at the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, so you can drive with confidence whenever you're behind the wheel.
  • The Kia Sorento is a larger three-row SUV with available all-wheel drive on every trim. The 2019 Kia Sorento received a five-star overall score from the NHTSA in 2019, and during the same year, it was also named as a Top Safety Pick+ by the team at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety! All this combines to make the new Sorento a great Kia AWD SUV for growing families. The 2020 Kia Sorento configurations offer all-wheel drive, too, but you'll have to upgrade from the base in order to access the feature.
  • The new Kia Telluride provides a more upscale vision for what a Kia AWD SUV can be! It even offers different all-wheel drive modes for snow and other settings!

Kia AWD Cars

Up until 2018, there were no Kia AWD cars in our lineup! While you may lament their absence, the truth is that it's very common for sedans and coupes to be offered only with front-wheel drive. However, if you're dead-set on choosing one of our Kia AWD cars, you should absolutely take a closer look at the celebrated Kia Stinger! 

After 2018, the Stinger became the first Kia AWD car to enter our lineup. Once you've seen what its 365-hp engine can do, you'll find it difficult to settle for any other model.
