Pack Up the Kia.

It’s Time for a Road Trip! Along with fuel efficiency, navigation aids, and driving power, the perfect weekend road trip vehicle needs to have enough space for passengers and luggage, comfort for the driver and passengers, and entertainment options for all. It’s hard to find one vehicle that meets all of these conditions, but Kia is up to the challenge. In fact, Kia manufactures SUVs, sedans, and even a sports car that make great vehicles for road trips.

Let’s take a look at some Kia models you might want to consider for your next trip to the beach, mountains, city, or countryside.

With its quick V-8 engine, multiple safety features, and well-equipped cabin, the 2021 Kia Sorento is a great road trip SUV. It has a spacious seven-seat cabin that’s comfortable for the driver and passengers. There’s lots of headroom in the third row. A large touch-screen makes seeing and using the navigation system easy (as well as choosing those road trip tunes). Safety features include a rearview camera, and the LX has a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert.

If you’re more in the market for a sedan, the 2021 Kia K5--the successor to the widely loved Kia Optima--can go more than 500 miles on a tank of gas, boasts Apple CarPlay/Android Auto for entertainment, and power lumbar support for comfort on long drives or bumpy backroads.

Sports cars can even be a great road trip car. The 2022 Kia Stinger GT has 365-horsepower and sport handling for long stretches of highway and twisty, curving roads. There’s an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay for music and navigation needs.

Minivan enthusiasts will want to check out the upcoming 2022 Kia Sedona, which features two center row captain’s chairs, a rear-seat entertainment system, three-zone climate control, and a peppy 3.3L V-6 engine.

Meanwhile, the 2021 Kia Sportage features a 2.0L turbocharged engine, spacious interior, and 30 highway miles in a crossover SUV. With two rows of spacious seating, it offers a smooth and reliable ride and agile handling whether you’re traveling city streets, coastal highways, or mountain pathways.

The 2021 Kia Soul is a great choice for a weekend road trip car. The small SUV has a panoramic sunroof, more passenger space than most small SUVs, and lots of cargo space for luggage, souvenirs, and beach, hiking, kayaking, or other outdoor gear.

If you’re hauling the whole crew, the 2021 Kia Telluride has three rows of seating for up to eight passengers. The midsize SUV has a 3.8L V-8 engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and 291 horsepower. It can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which makes towing a boat or camper much easier than with a smaller SUV. Standard safety features include front and rear automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control.
