Which Kia Vehicles Offer All-Wheel Drive?

When you're shopping for a new car or SUV around New Orleans, LA, that gives you the added traction and confidence of all-wheel drive (AWD), look no further than the latest lineup of new Kia vehicles. For greater grip when the roads turn slick, there is no substitute for AWD, and Kia has Louisiana motorists covered with a range of automobiles that are available with power sent to all four wheels. While some automakers only offer AWD in SUV models, Kia goes beyond that notion and boasts available AWD on its performance and luxury cars, too.

Let's review the 2019 and 2020 Kia models with AWD systems available and go over some of the benefits of all-wheel drive.

Kia Telluride

Kia's Telluride three-row mid-size SUV recently debuted to great fanfare and is one of the most versatile vehicles in its class. Not only does this rugged SUV provide available AWD for the unexpected, but it boasts seating for up to eight in its three rows.

What's even better is that this sport-ute routes significant power to all four wheels via its 3.8-liter V6 and allows for towing of up to 5,000 pounds. When you're after an athletic mid-size SUV that maximizes traction in all weather and road conditions and can accommodate your growing family, turn to Telluride!

Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento is a popular choice for drivers seeking a roomy vehicle that rides and handles like a crossover while holding up to seven passengers like a mid-size SUV. With its three rows of seating, including two rows that split and fold, the new Sorento is about as versatile as they come in this class! Speaking of versatility, its fully-active Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system continuously monitors driving and road conditions and is always ready to provide ample grip. With its 3.3-liter V6 engine and the added safety of AWD, your Metairie, Louisiana, area family can be confident in the predictable performance of your new Sorento!

Kia Sportage

The compact crossover and SUV segment continues to be a popular choice for drivers and families, and for a good reason! With the new Kia Sportage model, you'll enjoy spacious 5-passenger seating in two rows, plus a choice of efficient powertrains that help keep fuel costs low. Adding the available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system on a new Sportage enhances traction, handling and safety while retaining impressive city and highway mpg figures. Consider a Sportage SX Turbo AWD model for heightened performance, thanks to its 240-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

Kia Stinger

Maybe you're looking to upgrade to an athletic sports sedan but you still want the all-weather confidence of AWD. The Kia Stinger is your car, as it features dynamic performance thanks to its potent engine choices and available all-wheel drive system. Standard with 255 hp and offering up to 365 hp, the new Stinger lineup is what you get when Kia designs and engineers a sedan for maximum all-around performance.

Pairing its available 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with the optional AWD system, the Stinger can reach 60 mph from a standstill in as little as 4.7 seconds! How's that for confidence-inspiring performance?

Kia K900

Kia continues to go beyond what driver expect by pairing its lineup of cars and SUVs with superb features like all-wheel drive while retaining affordable prices. The luxurious Kia K900 full-size sedan now comes standard with AWD, not to mention a 365-hp twin-turbo V6!

This legitimate luxury sedan is loaded with premium amenities, from its quiet cabin, Nappa leather seating surfaces and mood lighting to its 12.3-inch touchscreen display and 17-speaker sound system. Enhance your every journey around New Orleans and beyond with the confident performance and luxury of the new K900.
