In 2023, you won’t be able to recognize the Kia Sportage. Kia has almost completely overhauled this compact crossover SUV. The cabin gives off a more luxurious feel, keeping the manufacturer’s efforts to give the brand a more upmarket identity. In this review, we’ll be going over the 2023 Kia Sportage trims and what they offer.
The most noticeable change is the front, which has been modernized by incorporating boomerang-shaped lights into a more prominent grille and the sculpted body sides. Other enhancements include an increased cargo capacity, a host of advanced technological upgrades, many driver safety aids, and a more spacious cabin.
There’s more than enough legroom in the front (105.2cm) and rear (105cm). Plus, you get 1,045L of cargo space behind the second row, increasing to 2,098L with the seats folded down. All trims are available in a 2.5-litre eight-speed automatic four-cylinder engine (178 lb-ft of torque and 187 horsepower). Under testing conditions, the Sportage sprinted from zero to 100km/h in about 9.5 seconds.
You’ll be able to tow 1,134kg and carry a maximum payload of 459kg. Standard safety features in all models include hill-assist control, a rear-view camera, a trailer stability assistance system, downhill brake control, a forward collision-avoidance assist system, cruise control, and a lane-keeping assist system.
