The Kia Sportage is expected to go through a redesign for the 2023 model year. Originally, a redesign for the Sportage was expected for the 2022 model year which would have aligned with the new-generation 2022 Hyundai Tucson, which is the Sportage's Hyundai counterpart. However, an early Kia order guide stated that the 2022 Sportage would be a carryover and the last model year for the current generation.
No information or images have been released yet but we expect the 2023 Sportage to follow Kia's recent design language with its signature tiger-nose grille and sharp headlights. It is possible that styling could look something akin to the redesigned 2021 Kia Sorento.
The Sportage is expected to get some upgrades under the hood and will likely gain a hybrid engine option like the Tucson. Currently, the Sportage has two engine options: a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque and a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder good for 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
