Should You Choose AWD vs 4WD Kia Models?

The Debate: AWD vs 4WD

When shopping for a new vehicle, it’s common to evaluate the style, space, comfort and technology. However, at Kia of Orange Park, we also encourage you to consider performance metrics in our suite of all-new sedans and SUVs. The drivetrain is one of the most popular debated aspects of a vehicle and depending upon the type of terrain and environment you drive in regularly, considering an AWD Kia or a 4WD Kia begs the need for an informed choice.

Learn more about the debate between AWD vs 4WD when stopping in at our Kia dealership. We invite you to test drive our premium vehicles and determine the best choice for you and your family.

The Benefits of AWD Kia Models

If you’re considering an AWD Kia sedan or SUV, know that you are getting a vehicle with more stability and reliability. An AWD Kia offers improved traction, especially when driving in the rain or snow. The AWD Kia system helps to reduce gliding or sliding when driving in slippery conditions or dry pavement.

Additional benefits include off-road capabilities. AWD systems often operate more effectively on dirt and gravel roads. While not all AWD Kia models are designed for off-road treks and water fording, an all-wheel drive system is going to give you better traction on most terrains.

What makes an AWD Kia model even more effective is the resale value. All-wheel drive models are often in more demand than rear-wheel drive or front-wheel drive vehicles. In addition, it may be easier to sell your vehicle or earn more when trading it in at our Kia dealership.

The Benefits of 4WD Kia Models

If you want premium power off the road, then it’s time to consider a 4WD Kia model. Depending upon the trim levels you choose when browsing our extensive collection of sedans and SUVs, you’ll find that 4WD systems work harder to distribute power to all four of the wheels of your vehicle. Just as AWD vehicles offer better traction than rear-wheel drive or front wheel drive, a 4WD Kia is designed to handle off-road conditions exceptionally well.

A 4WD Kia, such as the Kia Telluride or Kia Sportage, allows you to switch between drive modes to enhance fuel efficiency. You often get higher vehicle clearance and peace of mind knowing your driving Kia vehicles with an established and sturdy technology. Gain complete control in a 4WD Kia that sends more power to the wheels and gives you the option to stay in 4WD mode full-time or part-time.

Make the Choice: AWD vs 4WD

The best way to determine whether you want an AWD Kia or a 4WD Kia is to stop in at Kia of Orange Park to test drive our line of new SUVs and sedans. While 4WD capabilities are available in select vehicles, such as the Kia Stinger, Kia Sorento, Telluride and Sportage, many of our high-end sedans and SUVs are equipped with an AWD system. Discover just how powerful it can be to drive an AWD Kia or a 4WD Kia. Schedule your personalized visit to Kia of Orange Park today.
