Kia AWD Models

Which Kia Models Have All Wheel Drive?

If you need enhanced traction and control while you drive, the Kia lineup has your back. As you might expect, any 2021 Kia crossover or SUV model can be equipped with Kia AWD — but you may not be aware that you can upgrade your Kia Stinger sedan to handle winter weather in Los Angeles just as well as any sport utility vehicle. Read below for an overview of 2020 Kia AWD cars, crossovers, and Kia AWD SUVs that can keep you safe and in control on the road!

Kia AWD SUVs and Crossovers

  • Kia Seltos: Joining the Kia lineup in 2021, the all-new Seltos interior is packed with convenience features to make every day easier. Plus, the smart styling of the Seltos exterior is sure to draw attention around Carson. Higher trims add premium accessories — and you’ll still benefit from the accessible pricing you’ve come to expect from Kia.
  • Kia Sportage: Looking for the athleticism of a crossover combined with the maneuverability of a sedan? The Sportage compact crossover delivers the best of both worlds — perfect if you need a car that can move seamlessly between your work week and weekend adventures. Best of all, Kia AWD is available on every trim level.
  • Kia Sorento: Orange County families searching for a but more room may want to consider the Sorento. This model seats 7 and offers optional Kia AWD on all five trim levels.
  • Kia Telluride: If you need maximum passenger and cargo space, the Kia lineup has you covered! The Telluride seats up to 8 passengers and offers a maximum 87 cubic feet of cargo volume. Advanced tech and first-class amenities will keep you and your passengers happy, no matter how long the ride.

Are There Kia AWD Cars?

What if you prefer the size and efficiency of a sedan, but you still want the benefits of Kia AWD? SUVs and crossovers aren’t your only option when it comes to facing winter weather in Orange County. The Kia Stinger debuted in 2018 as the lineup’s first sedan with available Kia AWD. Thanks to an available 365-hp 3.3L twin-turbo V6 engine, this model also delivers the kind of power you’d normally expect from an SUV: 376 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 mph time of only 4.7 seconds.

What Are the Advantages of Kia AWD?

You may ultimately decide that you don’t need all-wheel drive capability, but it’s smart to learn what exactly Kia AWD cars and crossovers can do for your daily drives before you make the call:

  • Improved Traction: Kia AWD sends power to all four wheels as needed, so your vehicle is more likely to maintain traction on gravel, mud, and slick road surfaces.
  • Superior Off-Road Capability: Other enhancements allow your Kia AWD vehicle to handle any terrain you encounter off the road as well as on it.
  • Higher Resale Value: Looking to maximize your Kia vehicle’s resale value? AWD is a major plus for buyers and will allow for a higher resale price.
