Say Hello To The All-new 2023 Kia Sportage: An In-depth Review

Things are getting heated up in the small SUV segment as the 2023 model year plays host to a new generation of Kia’s uniquely-styled compact crossover.

The new 2023 Kia Sportage features a distinct fierce-looking exterior design, a spacious and tech-laden interior, and a new set of fuel-efficient powertrain options. The new car has improved on the flaws in its predecessor, making it a strong contender in the red-hot compact crossover space. A 2023 Kia Sportage lease deal gives you first-class access to this fresh ride at unbelievably-low prices.

Engine & Performance

The new Kia Sportage is powered by a 2.5Liter four-cylinder engine that coughs out 187 horses and 178 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. While the standard four-cylinder’s performance numbers will not impress most shoppers, there’s an available hybrid model that merges a turbocharged 1.6Liter four-cylinder engine with a single electric motor to generate 226 horsepower. If you are still unsatisfied, Kia has introduced a perkier 261-hp plug-in hybrid variant. The base engine might feel slightly lethargic, but the plug-in hybrid variant can go from zero to 60mph in a decent 6.9 seconds.

Fuel Economy

According to EPA, a 2023 Sportage equipped with the standard 2.5Liter four-cylinder and front-wheel drive is rated 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. Upgrade to all-wheel drive, and the rating plunges to 23 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.


Like every recently-redesigned Kia lease deal, the new Sportage sports an overhauled interior with quality materials, enormous digital displays, and other attractive design details. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch touchscreen display are standard on the base trim, but every other trim gets the larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display with navigation as standard. The new Sportage’s interior is larger, more practical, and more versatile. Cloth seats are standard, while an eight-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and synthetic leather upholstery are offered on higher trims.

Safety & Driver Assistance

Kia has beefed up the Sportage’s safety, security, and driver assistance features with advanced, high-end technology like;

  • Forward collision-avoidance assist
  • Lane following assist
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Driver attention warning

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
