2023 Kia Sportage Highlights


Whether you drive on the traditional roads or venture out to the off-road terrain, the Kia Sportage and its standard and available engine options bring forth endless possibilities of high-level performance.

A new 2.5-liter I-4 is more powerful and more fuel-efficient than the outgoing engine and is paired with an FWD or available Active AWD system with 1.5 more inches of ground clearance. For our more eco-friendly drivers, the newly available Turbo Hybrid and Turbo Plug-In Hybrid powertrains create a unique driving experience. Other performance features our Riverdale drivers can benefit from include:

  • 8.3-inches of ground clearance (AWD trims)
  • Multi-terrain AWD Mode
  • Sportage X-Pro exclusive BFGoodrich® A/T Tires


The new Kia Sportage’s redesign leaves a lasting impression with unified elements embodying ruggedness and luxury into one. Its bolder bodywork is also dimensionally bigger than before, which translates to more cargo space and a roomier interior. Going from one of the smallest SUVs in its class to one of the largest, the interior dimensions of the Kia Sportage is as follows:

  • Overall length is 7.1 inches longer than the previous generation, with a 3.4-inch longer wheelbase
  • Taller and wider by a half-inch compared to the previous generation
  • Class-leading rear legroom with 41.3 inches of room
