With one of the highest towing capabilities in its class, what else can Harvey drivers expect from the Kia Sportage performance? Read on to explore the 2020 Kia Sportage towing capacity, engines, and efficiency with Ray Brandt Kia.

Can a Kia Sportage Tow a Boat?

If performance capability is crucial in your SUV search, New Orleans drivers will find that the 2020 Kia Sportage towing capacity is just the beginning. Two powerful engine options deliver impressive power no matter which of the four trim levels you choose, and both are capable of towing mon-motorized boats. Can a Kia Sportage Tow a Boat with a motor? Because many motorized boats weigh 3,000 pounds or more, they require a vehicle with heavy-duty towing capabilities, like the Kia Sorento. Specs for the Sportage standard and available engines are as follows:

  • 2.4L 4-cylinder engine

    • 181 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque
    • EPA-estimated 23/30 city/hwy mpg
