When you’re shopping for a car, you need to make some big decisions. One of the most important choices is your drivetrain. You want a car that can do everything that you need it to do. At the same time, you don’t want to pay for features that you don’t need. That’s why it’s smart to learn more about drivetrain options before you go shopping for a car, and that’s why we offer a wide range of vehicles here at Executive Kia.

One of the most popular drivetrain options is front-wheel drive. This versatile option can be found on many Kia cars and offers a number of advantages over drivetrains like rear-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive cars can perform well in winter weather conditions, tend to offer better fuel economy, and they actually give you more interior space. The parts needed to build a front-wheel drive system just don’t take up as much space as those used to build a rear-wheel drive system. That being said, if you’re looking for cornering performance, a rear-wheel drive system might be better for your needs.

A wide variety of vehicles, from the Kia Forte sedan to the Kia Sedona minivan, come equipped with front-wheel drive systems. Small SUVs like the 2017 Kia Niro can also offer front-wheel drive. Some SUVs, like the Kia Sorento, give drivers a choice between that and all-wheel drive. An all-wheel drive car is even more capable in winter weather conditions. It doesn’t have to be turned on like a four-wheel drive system. Instead, it automatically makes sure that each wheel receives the power it needs to take on any road conditions you encounter.
