Can The Kia Sportage Tow a Boat?

While the Kia Sportage towing capacity has a maximum of 2,000 pounds when equipped properly, you might be wondering, can the Kia Sportage tow a boat to Hilliard? The Kia Sportage is capable of towing kayaks, jet skis, and possibly even a small boat with the Kia Sportage towing package. However, we recommend a heavier duty towing setup offered on our larger Kia SUVs, like the new Kia Telluride, if you’re planning on towing boats regularly.
