Kia SUV Towing Comparison | Harlingen, TX
A vehicle’s towing capacity can be an important consideration when shopping for a new vehicle, especially for drivers who live so close to the Gulf Coast and may want to take a boat out to South Padre Island on the weekends. Towing can also be important for drivers who use their vehicles for work, whether they are farmers or ranchers, plumbers or electricians, construction workers or landscapers.
Often, drivers automatically think of trucks when they think of great towing capacity, but SUVs can also offer impressive towing numbers. In fact, three of the SUVs in the current Kia lineup offer amazing towing capacities for a range of needs.
2020 Kia Sportage Towing
The 2020 Sportage is available in four trims: LX, S, EX and SX Turbo. The standard 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine delivers 181 horsepower and 175-lb of torque.
