2023 Kia Sportage

More room for adventure

Designed to Impress

Entering a new generation, the 2023 Kia Sportage is a vehicle with unbridled ambition. As one looks across the entire industry, there's always stiff competition in the marketplace for mid-sized and crossover SUVs. Kia's ambition to super the title from the regular leaders of the class is not just admirable; it's very much a possibility. The first advantage is an MSRP of only $27,615 that successfully underbids similar offerings from Mazda, Honda, Volkswagen, and Hyundai. Kia has also equipped the 2023 Sportage with PHEV and hybrid powertrains, allowing the vehicle to compete with some of the EV offerings from different brands.  

Explore with Confidence

If the newly designed exterior of the Sportage is any indication, it appears that Kia is going right to the top of the crossover SUV class. Its curvaceous body style sets it apart from the Soul and many other vehicles that are both offered by the brand and its class. We can assure you the stylings underneath are just as impressive as the new design that makes a memorable first impression. The base offering consists of a 2.5L four-cylinder equipped with a performance-oriented eight-speed automatic transmission and a horsepower rating of 187. Opting for the hybrid model merits 226 ponies of power and features different drive modes depending on the terrain you're exploring. Drivers who choose to utilize the gasoline-fueled four-cylinder can expect an MPG of 25 in the city and 32 on the highway. Meanwhile, the hybrid version proves its worth with the ability to reach 42 MPG in the city and 44 on the highway. Both are admirable specs and speak to the continued development of Sportage.  

Stay connected

The redesign of the Sportage extends beyond the powertrain and exterior. Behind the wheel is where you'll be spending most of your time, and Kia is determined to make it time well spent. Once again, Kia utilizes a design that's reminiscent of some of the European models it will be competing against. Its sloping windshield and posh interior are spacious and elevate the style to a level not seen during the previous generation. The horizontally placed infotainment screen is placed directly above a stylish gear shifter that looks like it was just taken out of a BMW. Inside and out, we love the 2023 Kia Sportage.
