Superb technology, a premium cabin, plenty of space and off-road capabilities come together in the 2023 Kia Sportage to provide our Temecula customers with an amazing compact SUV. All this and more awaits you at North County Kia, and here's a sneak peak of what you can enjoy when you drive the new Sportage off our lot.

An All-New Generation of Sportage SUV

The 2023 model year marks the start of a new generation for the Kia Sportage, and there are a lot of great changes to enjoy in this popular new model. You'll have more ground clearance, up to 7.1 inches from 6.4 inches, and an extra 500 pounds of towing capacity for a total of 2,500 pounds.

Despite only getting a 3-inch increase to the wheelbase, you'll enjoy quite a bit more space inside the 2023 Sportage. While the previous generation offered 30.7 cubic feet with the seats upright, this new iteration provides 39.6 cubic feet with the same configuration and up to 74.1 cubic feet with the back seats folded down. This also translates to a few extra inches of legroom for the rear passengers.

New Trim Levels

Kia offers the new Sportage in several new trim levels. Altogether, your trim level options are: LX, EX, X-Line, SX, SX Prestige, X-Pro and X-Pro Prestige. If you know the old Sportage trim levels, you'll be familiar with most of these options, but the X-Line, X-Pro and X-Pro Prestige are new arrivals to the lineup.

These three trims have a bolder style, higher ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive. They are designed to provide you with better performance in inclement weather and on off-road adventures.


The 2023 Kia Sportage also offers advanced tech features and other premium amenities, but those are best seen for yourself at North County Kia. Be sure to check out our current new Kia promotions and then stop by our Temecula dealership for a test drive of any of our new Kia SUVs!
