- kia has announced pricing for the redesigned 2023 sportage.
- it starts at $27,205 and ranges up to $38,005 for a loaded x-pro prestige model.
- pricing for the hybrid and plug-in-hybrid models is coming later.
like nearly every new model these days, the redesigned 2023 kia sportage receives a significant base-price bump over its predecessor. the lx trim starts at $27,205, a $1900 increase over the outgoing 2022 model. the mid-level ex, though, is $29,205, which is actually $400 cheaper than it was last year.
the new sportage's other trim levels don't line up neatly with the previous model's lineup, as kia has introduced a new x-line model with an off-road appearance package that starts at $32,005 and comes standard with all-wheel drive. the previous sportage's sx turbo trim with its optional 237-hp engine has also disappeared, as all sportages now come with a naturally aspirated 187-hp 2.5-liter inline-four, with the front-wheel-drive sx starting at $32,705. all-wheel drive is an $1800 option on the lx, ex, and sx. hybrid and plug-in-hybrid models are also set to follow, but we don't have pricing for those yet.
the sportage x-pro is also a new model that features all-terrain tires and the same appearance tweaks as the x-line. it starts at $36,205 and offers a prestige package with extra equipment for $1800. all-wheel drive is standard here too, as you would expect for an off-road model.
kia says that 2023 sportage models are starting to arrive at u.s. dealerships now, and the hybrid variants will launch later this year.
