2023 Kia Sportage Spotlight | Memphis, TN  

If you're looking for an affordable and stylish family SUV, consider the 2023 Kia Sportage. From its attractive design to the advanced systems that keep you and your loved ones safe, you can't go wrong with this adventurous and spacious SUV.

The 2023 Kia Sportage is available at seven trim levels: LX, EX, X-Line AWD, SX, SX Prestige, Sportage X-Pro, and Sportage X-Pro Prestige.

Appealing Design

Across the 2023 Sportage lineup, you can paint the SUV in one of many exciting colors like Sapphire Blue, Dawning Red, and Jungle Green. You also have the option, on certain models, to give the Sportage a two-tone look with an Ebony Black roof. Other exterior highlights include a black grille with silver accents, silver skid plates, silver window surround, matte black wheel arches, and a rear spoiler. Depending on the trim level you choose, you could also add large 18- or 19-inch wheels to your Sportage or other, more useful features like a Smart Power tailgate, a heated windshield, roof rails, and heated side view mirrors.

Money-Saving Performance

All 2023 Kia Sportage models are equipped with the same efficient engine. A 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder sits under the hood and works with an eight-speed automatic transmission to provide optimal performance. In fact, you can expect to get up to 25 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined on FWD models.[1]

Every Sportage comes with Normal, Smart, and Sport drive modes so you can choose exactly how efficient and exhilarating you want your drives to be. If you want a bit more peace of mind, consider opting for an all-wheel drive (AWD) model that adds a Snow drive mode and increased traction overall on slick roads.

Spacious Interior

The new Kia Sportage measures 183.5 inches long and 73.4 inches wide. What does that mean for the interior? You'll have enough room for five people and up to 74.1 cubic feet of total cargo room behind the first row (with the rear seat folded down). Behind the second-row seats is 39.6 cubic feet of cargo space for all kinds of gear and groceries. To create an even more spacious feeling in the cabin, opt for the available panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade to let your passengers enjoy the views above on every journey.

Convenient Amenities

You need an SUV that can accommodate everyone's needs on the go. That's why the 2023 Sportage comes with a long list of standard and available amenities to keep everyone happy. The standard woven cloth seats are soft and comfortable while the front center console houses USB-A and USB-C inputs for streaming and charging.

As you move through the Sportage lineup, you'll find additional helpful features like wireless device charging, dual-zone climate control, synthetic leather seating, power lumbar support for the driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and heated and ventilated front seats. If you plan on having more than one driver in the family, the Driver's Seat Memory System is a must-have. This feature saves preset positions for the driver's seat so there's no knocking knees on the steering wheel or having to mess with the seatback adjustment.

Smart Technology

You can stay connected to your world no matter where you're headed in the new Kia Sportage. With the standard 8-inch touch-screen display, you can use your favorite compatible smartphone apps via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You can also connect your devices via USB and Bluetooth®. The Sportage EX and above come with a larger 12.3-inch touch-screen display with Navigation, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and Kia Connect. With Kia Connect, you'll be able to remotely turn on the Sportage, lock or unlock the doors, and more. And if you want the best music experience the Sportage SX and higher trims come with an eight-speaker Harman Kardon® premium surround sound system with HALOsonic® technology.

Superior Safety

Of course, what's most important is keeping your family safe on every journey. The 2023 Kia Sportage is equipped with various standard safety systems like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (with Car, Pedestrian, and Cyclist Detection), Lane Following Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Driver Attention Warning (with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert), and Park Distance Warning-Rear.
