Which Kia Models Have All-Wheel Drive?

2021 Kia Sportage

The benefits of all-wheel drive in a new vehicle are many: not only does this give Muncie drivers the immediate satisfaction of better handling in rough environments, it also contributes to the overall safety of your vehicle. Kia AWD — On-Demand Active All-Wheel Drive — is available on many of the most popular vehicles on their inventory. Kia of Muncie covers all things Kia AWD, including how Kia AWD works, below!

How Kia AWD Works

The Kia AWD system, called the KIa Dynamax™ AWD System, is a Kia-exclusive system designed for all kinds of road conditions. Kia All-Wheel Drive works through a combination of innovative features like:

  • Real-Time Monitoring: Sensors and an Intelligent Control Unit are constantly monitoring Marion roads as you’re driving.
  • Quick Torque Adjustment: Kia All-Wheel Drive responds quickly to road conditions thanks to its multi-plate clutch and electro-hydraulic articulation system.

The result? Better traction, added value to your vehicle and even potential off-road capabilities for adventures outside Anderson.

Vehicles with Kia All-Wheel Drive

Fishers drivers will be happy to hear that they can find plenty of Kia AWD cars and Kia AWD SUVs to fit into their lives. Some of the more performance-focused vehicles come with standard AWD, while others have available AWD on their sportier upgrades. Here are the vehicles with Kia All-Wheel Drive:

Kia All-Wheel Drive Cars: 

  • Kia Stinger: In 2018, the Kia Stinger became the first Kia sedan available with Kia AWD. This luxurious vehicle can be upgraded to give you a true first-class experience.
  • Kia K900: The Kia K900 is an even more deluxe luxury vehicle that can be upgraded with Kia AWD.
  • Kia K5: The Kia K5 is the impressive redesign of the ever-popular Kia Optima. This design overhaul comes with striking exterior features, an updated interior, and, most exciting of all, a new Kia AWD car.

Kia All-Wheel Drive SUVs: 

  • Kia Sorento: You can fit up to seven passengers in the Kia Sorento, so it’s a good thing you’ll have all-wheel drive to help everyone get around safely.
  • Kia Sportage: A compact SUV that’s outfitted with innovative features, the Kia Sportage is Kia’s entry in a competitive category. Its available AWD helps it stand out!
  • Kia Seltos: Another competitive small SUV, the Seltos has available AWD in addition to other adventure-ready features like a roof rack and LED lights.
  • Kia Telluride: For many drivers, the Kia Telluride hits that sweet spot for an SUV: large enough for passengers to feel comfortable and capable enough because it’s a Kia AWD SUV!
