2024 Kia Sportage Starts At $800 More Than Last Year, SX AWD Trim Is Gone

Posted on

The latest generation of the Kia Sportage debuted for the 2022 model year. Now, the brand is announcing pricing and feature changes for the 2024 example.

Kia is eliminating the SX AWD trim. It was previously a mid-range model in the lineup. The second-row seats now have airbags, and there are projection-type LED headlights as standard.

The table below shows the price of the 2024 Sportage and compares the figures to the 2023 model.

Power continues to come from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine makes 187 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque.

So far, Kia isn’t offering pricing or details about the changes to the hybrid or plug-in variants.

In July, Kia announced the 2024 Sportage 30th Edition for the South Korean market to mark the model’s original debut in 1993. It features dark exterior trim and double-glazed windows for improved sound deadening. The cabin has a mix of dark green and black upholstery. There are 30th-anniversary logos on the front headrests.

The Sportage is Kia’s best-selling model. In 2022, the brand moved 125,245 of them. Whereas the Forte was in second place with a volume of 108,424 units.

As of July 2023, Kia has delivered 83,742 examples of the Sportage. It continues to be the brand’s strongest-selling product.

The Sportage was a winner of the Motor1.com Star Awards. Check out a discussion about it on Rambling About Cars here:
