2019 Kia Sportage Towing Capacity

The 2019 Kia Sportage has a tow limit of 1,650 to 2,000 pounds on every trim level. Getting up to 2,000 requires the addition of trailer brakes to your trailer. Trailer brakes help the trailer slow down when you hit the brakes up front so that the pressure of stopping the added trailer weight isn’t fully laid on the Sportage itself.

Interior cargo volume of the 2019 Kia Sportage

Trailering isn’t the only factor that comes into play for opening up outdoor adventures. Another handy figure to consider is interior cargo room. The 2019 Kia Sportage does not disappoint on this front.

Behind the second row, users get 30.7 cu. ft. of space. If you lower the second row seats, you open yourself up to a full 60.1 cu. ft. And, if you somehow remove everything inside and still manage to operate your vehicle, you’ll be exposed to the full 129.3 cu. ft. of interior space.
