Serving Morrow, GA

Are you wondering if you should upgrade to a new Kia SUV now or wait for the 2023 models to hit the market? The 2022 Kia Sorento is a gorgeous, three-row SUV that has extensive appeal from end to end. It is part of a generation that debuted last year, refreshed across all surfaces. The 2023 Kia Sportage will also be a next-generation model, and it carries its modern appeal. Our Kia Atlanta South sales reps are ready to help you explore these premium possibilities and decide what is right for you.


The 2023 Kia Sportage will be equipped with an all-new hybrid powertrain. This turbo hybrid engine can produce 226 horsepower while also delivering impressive fuel economy numbers. The Sportage is available with all-wheel drive. The 2022 Kia Sorento also has what it takes to impress you behind the wheel. It is offered with two gas-powered engines, including a 2.5-liter, turbo four-cylinder engine that delivers 281 horsepower. The Sorento also has a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid option. All of the Sorento’s trim levels have front-wheel drive, and they are all offered with optional all-wheel drive.


Both of these models are fresh off of a refresh, so they have head-turning styles that you will love showing off. The Sportage’s design is defined by rolling, smooth surfaces through the profile and sides. The fenders are smoothly defined. On the nose, you will find eye-catching, arrow-shaped LED headlights and a contemporary, athletic take on Kia’s signature, bowtie-style grille. The Sorento has flatter arches through its profile for a confident look. It also shows off a more muscular definition through the hood and sides. Its bowtie-style grille has scalloped mesh, and it is integrated with a dual-elemental headlight design. The headlights are comprised of a trio of half-moon bulbs underscored by a bending LED light bar.


You will not be disappointed by the features offered in either of these Kia SUVs. Both vehicles are available with or have standard features like parking sensors, a blind-spot camera, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rear mirror, power-folding side mirrors, a high-end audio system, smart device integration, a sunroof, a hands-free liftgate, adaptive cruise control, a wireless phone charger and more.
