2023 Kia Sportage is All-New From $28,395 in Canada

2023 Kia Sportage hitting Canadian dealers soon

  • Sportage gets HEV, PHEV options for first time

  • Will offer wide range of driver assistance tech

The 2023 Kia Sportage is all new. The Sportage gets sharper styling and a larger platform along with three powertrain options. When it hits dealers in spring, the starting price will be $28,395 in Canada.

For the first time, the 2023 Sportage will get a hybrid and plug-in hybrid option. The former makes 227 hp from its 1.6L turbo-four and electric motor while the PHEV Kia Sportage makes 261 hp. 90 of the PHEV’s ponies come from the electric motor running on its own, and while there aren’t any official range figures, it will have a 13.8 kWh battery. So it won’t be eligible for the largest government incentives. These two will arrive later, in the summer of this year.

The base engine is a 187 hp 2.5L four that has an eight-speed automatic. This one will offer front or all-wheel drive, and the other engines are AWD only.

Apart from the sharper new styling, Kia has upgraded the 2023 Sportage’s tech features. It will offer kit like a surround-view camera, connected cloud-based navigation, and a feature that will let you see a view from the vehicle’s cameras on your smartphone.

Highway Driving Assist, Kia’s smart cruise and lane-centering driver assistance will be available, plus rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, safe exit assist, and park distance warning. That’s on top of the wide range of standard safety gear.

Kia will sell the 2023 Sportage in LX FWD/AWD ($28,395/$30,395), X-Line ($33,995), EX ($35,595), EX Premium ($37,595), and X-Line Limited ($40,995) with pricing for the hybrid and PHEV to follow.
