Kia SUVs Parked in Front of Mountains

A variety of Kia SUV models are available at Kia of Chattanooga. Have you ever wondered about comparisons like the Kia Sportage vs. Sorento? What about the Kia Niro vs. Sportage? Well, with this new all-inclusive article on the Kia SUV lineup, you’ll have a reference point for the new Kia SUV lineup, including Kia hybrid SUV, and Kia electric SUV models.

What’s the Difference Between a Crossover & SUV?

Having all the information at your disposal is essential before settling on your ideal model. Even if a Kia crossover is ideal for your budget and way of life, you may find that you need more cargo room than the vehicle provides. Because of this, before you go car shopping near Cleveland or Dayton, make sure you grasp the distinction between a crossover and an SUV. Though a crossover SUV outperforms its midsize and full-size SUV counterparts in handling and gas mileage, it falls short in passenger volume. There are a number of other notable distinctions between Kia crossover SUVs and full-size alternatives.

  • For a vehicle to be classified as an SUV, a truck-based platform must be employed, but a crossover can be constructed using a car-based chassis. Crossovers are essentially improved sedans, whereas SUVs are basically trucks on wheels.
  • Towing capacity: a full-size SUV’s larger engine is better suited to the heavier loads typical of towing and other heavy-duty uses. Crossovers often have engine options starting at the 4-cylinder level, whereas SUVs typically have V6 and V8 motors.
  • Drivers in Ringgold, GA may want to take this into serious consideration. Both the crossover and SUV variants of Kia’s selection are well-equipped, but the full-size SUV will cost you more because of its greater size and utility.
