The total cargo volume inside of the 2020 Kia Sportage is 129.3 cubic feet. This gives you about 7 feet or so of space to play with. As long as your kayak is shorter than 7 feet, you should be able to fit your kayak in the back of your 2020 Kia Sportage. If you have a longer kayak, you might need to either strap it to the top of your vehicle or tow it with a trailer. The towing capacity without trailer breaks is 1,653 lbs and 2,000 lbs with trailer breaks. As you can see, trailering a longer kayak with the 2020 Kia Sportage would be no problem.

Other interior cargo dimensions are 60.1 cubic feet behind the first row with the dual-cargo level floor. When all of the seats are up, the cargo volume behind the second row is 30.7 cubic feet.
