Smart SUV Buying Tips

Do you have to commute in the winter weather? Living in Upstate New York, the roads can get snowy and dangerous!

The snowy winter weather is often a huge factor in the mind of new car buyers. You you’re your loved ones to be safe in your car no matter what the road conditions are.

Lucky for you, Kia offers different models of SUV’s that have 4-wheel drive. These car shopping tips should come in handy when trying to decide the right size SUV for you.

Reasons Why You Should Get a Kia SUV This Winter

1.    Heated Side Mirrors

As the driver, you need to be able to see out of all mirrors on your vehicle, especially under bad conditions. Having heated side mirrors will make ice melt away so that you can have full visibility. 

2.    Heated Seats

All new Kia SUV models come with heated seats. This makes it easier for you to warm up and drive comfortably in freezing temperatures.

3.    Four-Wheel Drive
All Kia SUV models come equipped with four-wheel drive. This allows all wheels to move independently, which can help you drive through the snow. This is especially helpful when there are a couple of feet of snow on the ground.

4.    Gas Mileage

Kia SUV models get great gas mileage for the size they are. Having good mileage is essential if you are stuck in traffic for hours during a snow storm.



Types of SUV’s

1.    2019 Kia Niro Hybrid EX

How Large of a Vehicle Do You Need?  

Kia has models that appeal to everyone. If you are someone who has a bigger family and needs to fill the car up with belongings, you may want to consider a larger SUV like the Sorento. The Sorento has third row seating for up to 7 passengers, or you can fold that row down for large trunk space.  If you are someone who often travels alone, you should consider the Sportage. It still has enough room to be an SUV but has a small, comfortable feel.
