2023 Kia Sportage LX Price And Performance

2023 Kia Sportage LX

2023 Kia Sportage LX  – The 2023 Sportage widened its face to match the proportions of its best-selling crossover. The newest Sportage is available in seven trim levels: the 2023 LX, EX, X-Line AWD, SX, SX Prestige, X-Pro, and X-Pro Prestige.

Most of the 2023 Kia Sportage models come standard with a 12.3-inch touchscreen and a touch panel for climate control. A dial gear shifter is standard on hybrid models, while a mechanical shifter is standard on gas models. The emphasis on space is reflected in the adjustable cup holders and deep storage cubbies.

From day to night, the Sportage is defined by vertical DRLs that boomerang from the bumper to the fender, as well as front and rear LED lighting. On X-models, a black roof supports raised roof rails, and tasteful black cladding runs over round wheel arches for a clean, smart profile that looks more like a Subaru than the daring Hyundai Tucson.

What is the price of the 2023 Kia Sportage LX?

The entry-level LX costs $25,990. Cloth upholstery, a 12.2-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8-inch touch screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a front USB-C port, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, remote keyless entry, and 17-inch alloy wheels are all standard features. Forward collision warning with pedestrian and cyclist detection, forward automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, a driver-attention monitor, a rear-seat reminder, rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rearview camera are all standard driver-assistance features.

When you add all-wheel drive, you'll also get heated front seats and heated side mirrors. Ambient LED lighting is also available ($300).

How is the Kia Sportage Performance?

The 2023 Sportage has only one engine option: a 187-horsepower four-cylinder. It's adequate for daily driving, but on the highway it feels strained and underpowered. It also whines at higher RPMs.

The 2023 Sportage gets 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. With all-wheel drive, these figures drop to 23/28 mpg city/highway. These are the class's average estimates.

What is the 2023 Kia Sportage LX top speed?

We anticipate a 0-60 mph time in the mid-seven second range, though lighter-weight front-drive models may be a tad faster. The Sportage is not particularly quick. The 187-hp 2.5-liter inline-4 engine produces 178 lb-ft of torque, and the sluggish 8-speed automatic transmission hesitates to engage from a stop and at speed. It's built for efficiency rather than power, so any sudden acceleration causes the engine to rev up and fill the cabin with noise.
