Can a Kia Sportage Tow a Boat?

You know you can rely on Kia vehicles for all kinds of tough tasks, but can a Kia Sportage tow a boat? When equipped with the Kia Sportage towing package, the Sportage SUV can tow up to 2,000 pounds. That’s usually enough power to haul a small watercraft like kayaks, canoes, or even a Jet Ski. Still, most boats weigh more than 2,000 pounds and will require a more heavy-duty towing setup, like in the Kia Sorento or Kia Telluride. However, the Kia Sportage towing package is suitable for many adventures around Hurst and is backed by potent engine options, such as:

Base 2.4L 4-Cylinder Engine

  • 181 hp with 175 lb-ft of torque
  • 6-Speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic®
  • EPA-estimated 23/30/26 mpg (City/Highway/Combined)

Available 2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder Engine

  • 240 hp with 260 lb-ft of torque
