2017 Kia Sedona

Here at Kia of Muncie, we know that buying a new car isn’t just one big decision. You have to make a few different choices before you make your purchase, and one of the most important things you need to choose is your drivetrain. Whether you want an efficient sedan or a reliable crossover that can comfortably seat your entire family, you want to be sure that your vehicle has all of the capabilities that you need.


We offer a wide variety of new Kia cars on our lot and a number of drivetrain options. One of the most common choices is front-wheel drive. You’ll commonly find this option in sedans and crossovers. There are many reasons that this option is so popular. First of all, the components needed for a front-wheel drive system take up less space, which means that your new ride is roomier. You’ll also find that front-wheel drive cars offer dependable performance in winter conditions and better fuel economy.


One front-wheel drive car we offer on our lot is the 2017 Kia Sorento, but that’s not the only choice that you have when it comes to this unique crossover. You can equip your Kia Sorento with an all-wheel drive system, which doesn’t need to be turned on manually like a four-wheel drive option. An all-wheel drive model can handle a wide range of road conditions because it sends the right amount of power to each wheel.


There’s also the rear-wheel drive option, which will be offered on the upcoming 2018 Kia Stinger. Cars like this sporty coupe give drivers better traction as acceleration increases. They also tend to be balanced for top performance and better cornering capabilities.


And if you still need help figuring out which drivetrain or model works for you, visit our Kia dealership near Marion, IN. We’ll make it easy to find a car that you’ll love. We hope to see you soon for a test drive!
