The frame still produces a sturdy center of gravity to offer you some stability anytime you’re driving, but the AWD trim levels create a heavier disparity in weight. The AWD-using models have a curb weight going from 3,543 to 3,834 pounds and the FWD-equipped models curb weight is 3,373-3,664 pounds.

At a time when customer service seems hard to come by JD answered my questions and then provided insight on other factors that I hadn't thought to ask about. I left with a new Kia and a more positive outlook on buying a new car.

We've purchased 3 automobiles from Kia of South Austin. We've returned to them because they are knowledgeable, courteous, patient, and always willing to answer our questions. From the receptionist, sales representative, to the finance representative - ALL were helpful and friendly. We've not purchase a Certified Preowned Vehicle from them before (had always bought new). But, they had the Make, Model and 2023 auto we were looking for - with very low milege & in pristine condition. Paul Guerra (Product Specialist) and Andreii Yurko (Finance Manager) both earned Five Stars. We know we can trust Kia of South Austin!

Hector was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process with repairing my vehicle. For someone like myself who doesn’t know much cars, he was very clear and thorough in explaining what was wrong. Also all the ways they could assist me getting back on the road safely. I always have a great experience here and this time was nothing short of that. Thank you guys!
