2020 Kia Sportage

Max. Seating: 5 passengers
Cargo Volume: 30.7 cu.-ft./60.1 cu.-ft.

There isn’t much debate that the Kia Sportage is the most popular true crossover SUV that is available at our facility. Some would say that the Kia Soul takes this title, but it’s not technically a true crossover platform. The 2020 Sportage continues to offer two rows of seats with a maximum capacity for five passengers. When the rear seats are being used to transport people, there is still 30.7 cubic-feet of cargo volume. Folding those seats away makes 60.1 cubic-feet available.

2019 Kia Sorento

Max. Seating: 7 passengers
Cargo Volume: 11.3 cu.-ft./38 cu.-ft./73 cu.-ft.

High-capacity vehicles, like the 2019 Kia Sorento, have always been prized by customers. The Sorento was one of the first such Kia vehicles to hit the market at the beginning of the crossover SUV class’ development. It offers three rows of seats that can hold up to seven passengers. However, as it applies to our purposes today, it is also one of the most cavernous vehicles in its class. When the vehicle is at maximum passenger capacity, it offers 11 cubic-feet of cargo volume. Folding the third row away expands that measurement to 38 cubic-feet and properly stowing both rear rows can offer a maximum of 73 cubic-feet.

2020 Kia Telluride

Max. Seating: 7 or 8 passengers
Cargo Volume: 21 cu.-ft./46 cu.-ft./87 cu.-ft.

Not only is the 2020 Kia Telluride the automaker’s newest crossover SUV, but it’s also the largest and most spacious. The new Telluride can accommodate up to eight passengers, though some trim grades offer seating configurations that can also hold seven. Captain’s chairs in the second row, instead of a bench seat, makes the difference in seating capacity. Owners hauling the maximum number of souls in the 2020 Telluride will be able to hold 21 cubic-feet of cargo. Getting rid of the third row makes 46 cubic-feet available and when the Telluride is configured for maximum cargo hauling, up to 87 cubic-feet of volume can be used.
