How does all-wheel drive work?

Unlike front-wheel drive that only utilizes the front two wheels of a vehicle for power and traction, models equipped with all-wheel drive have the ability to provide power to each of the four wheels when necessary. The Kia AWD system uses interior sensors to track which tires are receiving the most traction so it can send the power to where it will be the most useful.

To choose between the three Kia crossover and SUV models with AWD listed above, drivers will need to consider their space needs, wish lists, and budgets. The 2019 Kia Sportage is the smallest model on the list and offers seating for up to five passengers including the driver. The 2019 Kia Sorento is a much larger SUV with seating for up to seven and performance equipment that makes it a little better for tackling tough terrain or doing light-weight towing. The 2020 Kia Telluride is the largest of the three models and is the most well equipped of the three with a more robust set of performance equipment and amenities.
