Can the Kia Sportage Tow?

When you're looking for an SUV, it's only natural to want something with at least a little bit of towing power. They're sports "utility" vehicles, after all.

When you're interested in smaller models like the Kia Sportage, however, there can often be questions about how much "utility" they can actually handle. How much can something like the Kia Sportage tow, for instance?

While the Sportage isn't going to hit the same peaks of performance as some of Kia's larger SUVs, it can still tap into some under-the-hood muscle when the moment calls for it.

Running at its peak with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine at its disposal, the Kia Sportage can tap into a peak output of 240 horsepower with 260 pounds-feet of torque. That adds up to a 2,000-pound towing capacity.

While that might not be enough to tow another vehicle or similarly larger loads, it's more than enough to tackle things like U-Haul wagons and other smaller loads that many Westminster drivers commonly encounter.
