Although Kia does not currently make a truck, a new Kia pickup may be headed to the U.S. within the next few years. We expect it to offer all-wheel drive when it arrives.

Kia AWD Cars

If you’re searching for a Kia AWD car, you’re probably the type that prioritizes performance and handling above all else. If that’s true, you’re sure to love the new Kia Stinger, a small-but-formidable luxury car with great performance specs, and value that only a Kia can provide!

The Kia Stinger was released in 2018, making it the first and only Kia AWD car in our lineup. Models like the Kia Forte and Kia Optima are only available with front-wheel drive.

Why Should You Choose a Model with Kia AWD?

  • Kia AWD provides superior traction, faster acceleration, and improved security when the going gets tough! It’s preferred by drivers who want a more engaging commute, or who often face challenging weather.
  • All-wheel drive models tend to fetch higher resale values, because they’re seen as better investments by drivers on the hunt for used cars.
  • Kia AWD uses computer sensors to monitor the traction in each tire, and sends power to the points with the best grip! That means you’ll always have the power to move forward.
  • Your Kia AWD system only goes to work when it’s needed, so you can enjoy a more secure drive without compromising on fuel economy.
