Towing with Kia Sportage


New member
2020 Kia Sportage AWD Have been towing a 650 lb Teardrop Trailer with the Sportage. My 2016 Soul towed it like it wasn't even pulling a load. The Sportage is horrible. My mileage drops in half and twice while pulling the trailer the Sportage has gone in to limp mode. I feel maybe the transmission is overheating.

I talked to the Kia tech and he said "He wishes they would just put 0 towing capacity in the owners manual" Suppose to be just short of 1800 lbs Tow capacity.

I think I will trade in for the new Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup with AWD 3000 lbs towing capacity.
