Family-Friendly Kia SUVs | Harlingen, TX
Time and again, Kia proves it is one of the best brands for people in the market for a new family-friendly SUV. In April, the Kia Sorento was named the winner of a “Best Family Cars 2021” award by PARENTS Magazine thanks to its top-notch safety and convenience features.
This is on the heels of the “Best Family Car to Buy in 2021” award that the three-row 2021 Kia Telluride received from The Car Connection earlier this year. In 2020, the same publication also dubbed the Telluride the overall “Best Car to Buy,” further highlighting the excellence of the automaker’s SUV lineup. Take a look at what makes Kia vehicles so family friendly.
Every year, PARENTS Magazine evaluates new models that have aced the industry’s safety tests. In 2021, this included more than 50 cars. PARENTS then puts these safety-leading models through a gauntlet designed to test their efficiency, car seat compatibility, and driving ease.
With its improved gas mileage, auto high beam headlights, lane-keeping assistance technology, and smooth turbocharged engine, PARENTS considered the 2021 Kia Sorento a clear choice for its annual list of the best family cars.
The Kia Telluride is one of the most in-demand SUVs in the market. It’s not just because of the bold attitude and attractive ticket price — with a hugely generous list of standard features, segment-leading passenger space, and an IIHS 2021 Top Safety Pick award to its name, the Kia Telluride is quite simply the whole package.*
For families seeking a new SUV, it’s tough to find a better option than the Telluride. Most rival brands cannot compete with its blend of value and upscale features, which is why it was named the 2020 World Car of the Year and the 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.
It also helps that the Telluride, like all other Kia models, benefits from an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile warranty. If you value the peace of mind that comes with protecting your family and not having to worry about unforeseen repair costs, the Telluride is the SUV for you.
Kia Carnival MPV
The Kia Carnival MPV is an all-new model that’s so innovative that it doesn’t just redefine the SUV segment — it creates a new one. It seamlessly blends the best features of an SUV with the best features of a minivan, offering best-in-class passenger and cargo space. Sliding second-row seats, one-touch VIP seating, and available dual-screen rear-seat entertainment systems make the Carnival the ideal vehicle for parents seeking a way to keep the kids occupied while on the road. Wireless charging ensures everyone’s devices stay charged without cluttering the cabin, and the available night vision, in-cabin camera view lets you check in on the little ones even at night.
The Carnival MPV also comes with a full suite of advanced airbags, LATCH systems in the second and third row, an ultrasonic sensor-powered rear occupant alert system, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and many other safety features. The Kia Carnival was designed from the ground-up to be the go-to vehicle for traveling in a group.
For smaller and more budget-constrained families seeking a safe and ultra-efficient SUV, the Kia Niro is the way to go. Thanks to its hybrid powertrain, it gets an estimated 53 mpg in the city, saving you more money at the pump so you can have more to spend on your children’s needs.** The Niro also comes with a standard and comprehensive suite of advanced driver-assist and active safety technologies, giving it all of the makings of a great family SUV.
