There’s No Room at the Gas Pump for These Kia SUVs

2017 Kia Sportage SUV driving down a highway

From all-wheel drive capabilities to passenger and cargo space, there’s plenty to love about SUVs. About the only drawback people have about these vehicles is the gas mileage.

But in a Kia SUV, you can have the best of both worlds.

Kia has built a reputation for impressive fuel economies in its sedans and now that same efficiency has been carried over to its fleet of sport utility vehicles. There are several Kia SUV models and minivans that have been regularly highlighted in reviews but rarely spotted at the gas pump.  

The 2016 Kia Soul sports 30 MPG on the highway and 24 MPG during city driving and is the KIA SUV with the best gas mileage. The Kia Soul saves you money long before you hit the gas pump too. With a base MSRP of just $15,900, the Soul is not only best among Kia SUV prices but is among the most affordable SUV’s on the road period.

Not to be outdone, the 2016 Kia Sportage delivers 30 MPG on the highway and 23 MPG on city streets. Even on all-wheel drive the Sportage still allows for a combined EPA of 22 MPG. The Sportage was named one of the 10 Most Affordable SUV’s of 2016 by Kelley Blue Book.

In the crossover category, the Kia Sorento pushes 28 highway MPG and 21 city MPG as yet another Kia SUV with good gas mileage. The Sorento has the safety capabilities to match its fuel economy, making it an ideal combination for family drivers.

Tagging along as Kia’s sole minivan is the Sedona, which sports fuel efficiency of 18/25 MPG city to highway. It’s also a winner of the J.D. Power APEAL Award, of which fuel economy was a factor.

The Kia Electric SUV: Next-Level Gas Mileage

What’s the most fuel efficient SUV possible? The one that requires no fuel whatsoever. The 2016 Kia Soul is also available in an electric model that has a best-in-class standard driving range of 93 miles on a full charge. And after a federal tax credit, the electric-powered Soul rings up at just $24,450.
