Kia Models for Weekend Adventurers | Mission, TX
Given our location, so many Mission, Texas, residents embrace weekend adventures. Some head to the gulf, particularly South Padre Island, for fishing, swimming, surfing, boating and kayaking, while others hike or bike the many trails of Texas — some even camping overnight. These weekend adventurers need a reliable vehicle capable of towing boats and trailers, storing gear inside and earning impressive fuel economy for long road trips. We recommend the Kia Sportage, Kia Sorento and Kia Telluride.
The Kia Sportage can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped and gets impressive fuel economy — up to 30 mpg on the highway*. Available all-wheel drive improves traction off the beaten path and in poor conditions. With rear seats folded, you can fit up to 60.1 cubic feet of cargo in the back of the Sportage, whether it’s camping gear, coolers, kayak paddles or boogie boards.
The Kia Sorento is incredibly powerful with up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped**. You can fit more friends or cargo in the Sorento for your next adventure; it comfortably seats up to seven passengers or offers up to a whopping 73 cubic feet of cargo space thanks to 40/20/40 split-folding second-row seats and 50/50 split third-row seats. Never run out of a charge, even in the middle of nowhere, with the Sorento’s available wireless charging.
The newest and largest SUV from Kia is the Telluride, which comes standard with Blind Spot Collision Technology and Auto Emergency Braking Technology. You can fit eight passengers in the Telluride, or instead optimize the space for cargo, unveiling up to 87 cubic feet of cargo space. More importantly, the Kia Telluride can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped and is available with an all-wheel drive system with Torque Vectoring Cornering Control and multiple AWD modes, like Snow and AWD Lock***.
