Which Kia Models Have AWD?

2021 Kia Telluride Models in Desert


Kia AWD cars and SUVs are known for their driving dynamics and advanced technology, but which model should you choose if you need all-weather capability? Whether you’re heading off-road or navigating winter roads in Gastonia, Kia AWD technology is designed to keep you in control. Read on for a rundown of Kia AWD SUVs, crossovers, and sedans for sale at Renaldo Kia in Shelby.


Kia AWD SUVs and Crossovers

  • Kia Sportage — Kia AWD is available across the Kia Sportage trim lineup. A Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety should give you assurance that this Kia SUV can handle any winter-weather challenge.
  • Kia Sorento — Need a family-friendly, 7-seat SUV? Opt for Kia AWD for any Kia Sorento trim.
  • Kia Seltos — Designed for off-roading and other challenges, the Seltos offers Kia AWD and sporty features like a roof rack and LED fog lights.
  • Kia Telluride — As the largest of the Kia AWD SUVs, the Telluride offers Kia AWD capability, Drive Wise safety technology, and plenty of luxe interior amenities.

Kia AWD Cars

  • Kia K5 — New in 2021, this sporty Kia K5 sedan offers wide-track suspension and All-Weather Drive options for enhanced stability on the road in Hickory.
  • Kia Stinger — This speedy compact sedan is designed for driving excitement! Choose a Stinger from 2018 or later for Kia AWD capability.
  • Kia K900 — For a refined ride and upscale amenities, choose the full-size Kia K900 sedan. AWD capability and 365 hp deliver all the power you need.

What Are the Benefits of Kia AWD?

Kia AWD uses Dynamax™ technology to monitor road conditions in real-time. When sensors detect a loss of traction, the system automatically diverts torque to the wheels that need it most using a multi-plate clutch and electro-hydraulic actuation. That translates to safer driving in Forest City:

  • Enhanced Traction — Slick road surfaces or other unstable driving conditions are no problem for Kia AWD! The system automatically increases traction to prevent spinning wheels.
  • Off-Road Capability — While some sedans with Kia AWD aren’t necessarily designed for off-roading, every Kia AWD SUV and crossover will perform better than its FWD counterpart.
  • Increased Resale Value — Vehicles with Kia AWD cost more than FWD vehicles, but Kia AWD is a desirable feature that will increase your car’s resale value. Value your trade-in to learn more!
