You’re in the market for a new family vehicle, and you know that Kia models offer major advantages over competitors from Hyundai, but which Kia SUV do you choose? Kingdom Kia is here to help, with a quick overview of the current Kia SUV lineup.

Kia Niro

Drivers seeking a practical hybrid for St. James living, have you met our friend the Kia Niro? Returning as much as 50 mpg in the city and offering the space of a small SUV, the Niro is a unique vehicle that truly has no competitors.

With a more powerful engine than most hybrids, the Niro is energetic, sports a six-speed dual-clutch transmission — a more traditional feel than a CVT — that will have you questioning your thoughts about hybrid cars.

A dedicated hybrid with a conventional approach, the Niro is due for some attention.

Kia Sportage

Never an SUV for small changes, you can track the generations of the Sportage with a glance. Originally a boxy value SUV, the modern Sportage is a well-rounded compact crossover with seating for up to five. Three trims, two engines, and available all-wheel drive make the Sportage one of the most versatile options in its class, and an entry-level price of just $23,750 (MSRP) for 2019 models marks it as an affordable choice for Springfield drivers.

Not sure if you should choose the Sportage or the Sorento? We have you covered.

Kia Sorento

The Sorento first hit Jefferson City with a traditional body-on-frame design that didn’t quite match up with what many families wanted out of an SUV. Reinvented as a family-sized crossover with unibody architecture, the modern Sorento seats as many as seven passengers and has no trouble going head-to-head with its fiercest competitors.

With the choice between four-cylinder or V6, five passengers or seven, front- or all-wheel drive, up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, and one of the best warranties in the business, it’s no wonder so many drivers take their families home from Rolla in a Sorento.
