Boasting a brand-new interior with added luxury and consumer-focused features, the latest Sportage is the ideal vehicle for all types of drivers. The wide selection of trim levels, accessories, and add-ons allow you to customize your vehicle’s interior to meet your needs and reflect your personal style. Here are some of the most noteworthy changes in the 2023 interior redesign:

Trim Levels

In 2023, the Kia Sorento lineup offers extended customization options. The most recent line includes seven different trim levels: the Sportage LX, EX, X-line, SX, SX Prestige, Sportage Pro, and Sportage Pro Prestige. Each trim option features a variety of exclusive colors, accent packages, technology systems, and interior features.

Storage Space

The 2023 Sportage provides significantly more storage and cargo space than last year’s model. Official measurements show a standard 39.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up and a maximum of 74.1 cubic feet of storage space with the back seats folded down. The increase makes the Sportage resemble a midsize SUV more closely than the typical compact classification of previous designs. Earlier models, such as the 2022 Sportage, had a more limited capacity, with a standard 30.1 cubic feet of cargo space and a maximum of 60.1 cubic feet with the seats folded down.


The seats and materials in the Kia Sportage’s updated interior add to the luxury and comfortable feel of the newest model. Depending on your selected trim level, the seats feature SynTex or leather materials for easy cleaning and a comfortable ride. All trim levels have a seating capacity of five, with the driver’s seat, passenger seat, and a three-passenger bench in the back row. The interior seats also follow the two-tone design of the updated exterior and feature a chevron stitching pattern that gives the impression of luxury and style.


In the base LX model, you’ll find an 8-inch touch-screen display, but all other trim levels in the new lineup feature a 12.3-inch touch-screen display. The upgraded trims also include compatibility with Kia Connect and navigation systems in the touch-screen display. Both infotainment systems come equipped with and are eligible for Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Wi-Fi hot spot connections. The SX, SX Prestige, Sportage Pro, and Sportage Pro Prestige come standard with an innovative and high-quality eight-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system. Other trim levels have a standard six-speaker audio system.

Interior Amenities

In addition to the new appearance and technological advances, the 2023 Kia Sportage provides a list of amenities that ensure the comfort, safety, and performance that drivers have come to expect from a Kia. Some of the fantastic features you’ll find in the 2023 Sportage include keyless entry, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, interior lighting, and heated front seats. The exact availability for each feature varies depending on your selected trim, but many features come standard and work to increase your comfort and driving experience.

Additional features

With its brand-new interior look, the Sportage offers drivers a variety of innovative, convenient, and unique features that set the car apart from the competition. Here’s information about the car’s performance, engine, and safety systems that work to enhance the driver’s experience:


The 2023 Sportage provides enhancements for the vehicle’s performance and power. A standard eight-speed automatic transmission makes the drive and handling smooth and works with the engine to produce 187 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. Other performance features also enhance handling and shifting, like an option for different drive modes, including normal, smart, and sport. The Sportage also has a maximum towing capacity of 2,500 pounds, so you can easily haul and tow your equipment.


This vehicle runs on the power provided by its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The engine features a valve train and direct injection system that ensures proper operations and delivers power to the vehicle. All trim levels include the same engine and transmission to provide performance and power without sacrificing efficiency and style.

Safety Systems

The 2023 Kia Sportage offers new and innovative safety technologies that provide convenience and reassurance for drivers and their passengers. All trims include forward collision avoidance, lane following assistance, lane departure warnings, and blind-spot monitoring systems. Other standard safety features, such as dual airbags, seat belts, stability control, and anti-lock braking systems, ensure safety and security for drivers and others on the road.

Fuel Efficiency

This vehicle’s small but powerful engine and design allow for greater fuel efficiency and can benefit drivers looking to reduce their fuel consumption. All trim levels offer an EPA estimated fuel efficiency of 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The 2023 Sportage also includes a 14.3-gallon fuel tank capacity, so you can drive and travel with fewer stops at the gas station.
