All-Wheel Drive Kia Models

Automobile technology has advanced quite a lot in the past few years. One of the most prominent developments is the introduction of all-wheel-drive technology, designed for improving the driver’s safety and capability on the road. Several Kia car models are equipped with the latest all-wheel-drive technology, that surely provides the driver with peace of mind while navigating difficult terrains.

What is the all-wheel-drive technology?
All-wheel drive cars are sometimes confused to be the same as 4WD cars. Although the two drivetrains do have some functional similarities, they differ in application. The latest all-wheel-drive technology enables the engine of the car to power each wheel depending on the need of the vehicle as well as the condition of the road. The all-wheel-drive technology is pre-installed into the vehicle and does not need to be manually controlled. The technology adapts to the surface and distributes power to the wheels that require the most traction and support. The intelligent technology carries out minute readings of the wheel’s motions and directs the engine to supply power accordingly. All-wheel drive technology is perfect for cars that are exposed to different weather conditions and road surfaces. While driving on snow, ice, or gravel, the all-wheel-drive technology provides the driver with the utmost stability and control over the vehicle.

What Kia cars have all-wheel-drive technology?
As of 2019, the cars with the Kia all-wheel-drive technology are - 2019 Kia Sportage, 2020 Kia Sportage, 2019 Kia Sorento, 2020 Kia Telluride, 2019 Kia Stinger, 2019 Kia Stinger GT, 2019 Kia K900. While these models are currently available in the market, barring the 2020 Kia Telluride, several other new models are being produced with the popular and efficient all-wheel-drive technology.

What are the benefits of all-wheel drive technology?
All-wheel drive cars offer better traction, making driving in harsh weather conditions much safer. The cars with all-wheel drive are less likely to skid or slip on the road. All-wheel drive technology is also highly efficient for off-roading purposes. While all-wheel drive makes it possible, several other factors come into play in order to make a vehicle fit for off-roading. Lastly, all-wheel drive vehicles have a better re-sale value due to better capabilities. You can find out more about the Kia all-wheel drive cars at the Deacon Jones Kia dealership.
