Kia AWD SUVs and Crossovers

What are the Benefits of Kia All-Wheel Drive?

It’s no wonder that Kia AWD models are popular amongst Alton-area drivers. These are just some of the reasons why you’ll have a better driving experience behind the wheel of an AWD SUV or sedan:

  • Better Traction: AWD vehicles can make driving in harsh weather conditions much safer. Since AWD vehicles have better traction, they are less likely to glide on roads that are slippery due to rain or snow.
  • Off-Road Capability: If you are planning on taking your car on an off-roading excursion, a vehicle with AWD can help make that possible. It is important to note, however, that just because a vehicle has AWD, this does not on its own mean the car is suited for off-road driving. It is also important to consider the durability of the brakes and both the acceleration and suspension of the vehicle, among other factors.
  • Resale Value: Because an all-wheel drive Kia costs more up front, and is more capable, you will have an easier time selling (should you choose to do so), and should not have to worry so much about resale value if and when the time comes.
