How does the 2020 Kia Sorento handle in snow?
Living in Minnesota means having a strategy for safe driving during the winter months, lest cabin fever becomes more than just a troublesome concept. When customers stop into the Kia of St. Cloud showroom to inquire about a new vehicle, they almost inevitably ask, ‘How does the 2020 Kia Sorento handle in snow?’ Like previous versions, the 2020 Sorento is a three-row crossover SUV that is well-equipped and is going to be a prime candidate for families looking for a convenient mode of transportation. When winter hits, future owners will be able to find confidence in traversing less than perfect road conditions. A few of our Kia of St. Cloud product experts took a closer look at the platform and they are excited to share what they found.

Does the 2020 Sorento have all-wheel-drive?
Is FWD or AWD better in snow?
The debate between which is better in the snow is one of those discussions that will likely never have a definitive answer. There are pros and cons to both drive systems. Certainly, front-wheel-drive is a marked improvement over old rear-wheel-drive systems because the weight of the engine pushes the drive wheels against the road surface. All-wheel-drive systems are able to apply additional torque to a wheel that is slipping. Basically, the 2020 Sorento is a great option for buyers who need a vehicle to get them through a cold, snowy and slippery winter driving season.
It’s also important to note that regardless of which vehicle a person chooses to take home from the Kia of St. Cloud showroom, careful driving is the most important element. All-wheel or even four-wheel-drive systems are not magic. Driving too fast for conditions is always dangerous and can lead to sliding off the road, if not much worse.
