After you’ve read our guide, find out which Kias have the best gas mileage and the best things to do around Kansas City.

2020 Kia Telluride

As the top-range vehicle on our guide, the Kia Telluride offers drivers in Kansas City a long list of features and advanced technology to help you through the winter weather.

  • Active On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) w/ AWD Lock and Snow Mode: The AWD system uses sensors to monitor road conditions and distributes power to wheels that need additional traction or stability. In extreme conditions, the driver can activate AWD Lock or Snow Mode for better traction.
  • Torque Vectoring Cornering Control (TVCC): The TVCC uses yaw rate and steering input sensors to detect if the vehicle needs more or less steering power. This helps maintain vehicle stability in snowy weather.

2020 Kia Sorento

With a high safety rating and tires that can outlast snow and ice, the Kia Sorento gives drivers the versatility to do their errands in Independence or go off the beaten trail without sacrificing driveability or comfort.

  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS): The ABS uses electronic sensors in each wheel to detect skidding while braking. If skidding is detected, the ABS modifies the braking force to reduce skidding and maintain control of the vehicle.
  • Break Assist System (BAS): The BAS detects emergency braking situations and acts if the situation is not resolved. The BAS applies brake pedal pressure to bring the vehicle to a safe, complete stop.

2020 Kia Sportage

With a new array of technology and driver-assistance features, the 2020 Kia Sportage has the ability to take on the toughest of snowstorms at an amazing starting price.

  • Dynamax All-Wheel Drive (AWD) w/ Locking Center Differential: The Dynamax AWD system uses sensors to monitor road conditions and distributes power to appropriate wheels to help with traction and control.
  • Traction Control System (TCS): The TCS senses wheel-spinning during acceleration and transfers power to the wheels with the most traction to help the vehicle recover traction and control.

2020 Kia Soul

The 2020 Kia Soul offers drivers in Raytown a vehicle that is customized to them, all while sporting an amazing array of standard features.

  • Vehicle Stability Management (VSM): The VSM intervenes when the vehicle loses traction while leaving its lane. The VSM helps the driver regain control and return the vehicle to its intended path.
  • Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD): The EBD system distributes braking pressure to each wheel to give the driver more controlled and precise handling of the brakes.
