Kia SUV Buying Guide
Here at Rock River Kia, we want to help our customers enjoy searching for a new or used vehicle. That’s why we’ve put together a quick overview of our Kia SUVs! Check out the key features each model has to offer and then give our team a call at 815-209-0485 to schedule a test drive.
Soul, Niro, and Sportage
If you’re looking for a vehicle that is easy to maneuverer around city streets but still offers interior versatility, the Soul, Niro, and Sportage are your three main contenders. All offer 5-passenger capacity and a split-folding rear seat that you can use to create a variety of different interior configurations. The Soul is the smallest of the set, blurring the line between wagon and crossover, but it still provides a generous 24.2 cubic of cargo space with the rear seat up and 61.3 cubic ft. of maximum cargo room. With its bold exterior design and fun interior features that include interior ambient lighting with audio-responsive technology, the Soul is a truly innovative option. When it comes to eco-friendly performance, the Niro shines with its hybrid powertrain. Strategic placement of the battery allows you and your friends to enjoy a spacious cabin and 19.4 cubic ft. of cargo space with the rear seat up. If you’re taking home furniture or going camping, all you have to do is fold the rear seat flat for 54.5 cubic ft. of maximum stow-away room. Meanwhile, the Sportage gives you a higher stance and available AWD that’s ideal for drivers who want to traverse tough terrain. It also provides the most cargo space of these three vehicles behind the rear seat at 30.7 cubic ft. to hold the essentials.
Sorento and Telluride
Our next set of SUVs are ready to accommodate a larger crew with seating for seven or eight passengers. The Sorento comes standard with 7-passenger capacity in the form of a 40/20/40 split-folding second row and 50/50 split-folding third row. With eight different trim levels, two engine choices, and numerous premium comfort features, you can easily customize a version of this model to meet your needs and your budget. A new member of the Kia family is the Telluride, which combines maximum interior space with luxurious features and rugged performance. You can either equip a bench for the third row to utilize an 8-passenger capacity or go with captain’s chairs for 7-passenger capacity. With 87 cubic ft. of maximum cargo space and available features like a 10.25-inch center stack touchscreen, SOFINA-appointed seat trim, and chrome exterior details, the Telluride provides a first-class experience.
