2023 Kia Sportage: Performance Specs

Thanks to a new platform and longer wheelbase, the 2023 Kia Sportage offers a smoother and quieter ride than the outgoing model. And with a standard 187-hp 2.5L four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, comfort doesn’t come at the expense of incredible capability.

Kia Sportage 2023 models are configurable to meet your needs on the trail or on the highway. Opt for a fuel-efficient hybrid variant for your Lewis Center commute, or a trim such as the X-Line or X-Pro for specialized off-road features and performance.

  • Updated daytime running lights, tiger nose grille, and taillights
