The 2023 Kia Seltos

A versatile compact crossover with a roomy cargo area of 26.2 cubic feet, the Kia Seltos stands out from many competitors in the compact crossover sector due to its distinctive appearance and entry-level pricing. The Seltos offers considerable versatility as well as a roomy cargo compartment. The front and rear headroom is excellent, the kids have outstanding legroom, and the trunk is larger than anticipated.

The Kia Seltos features five seats and is available in five trim levels. With a 2.0-liter I-4 engine with front-wheel drive (FWD), the S 2.0 FWD is the most popular model, earning up to 35 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city. In the third year of its current generation, the Kia Seltos offers slightly more robust safety features on the S model, but nothing else has changed. You can choose between FWD or all-wheel drive (AWD) and two engine options depending on the weather conditions you expect to encounter.

The six- and seven-seater 2023 Kia Sorento fuses comfort, technology, and fuel efficiency in a midsize SUV. The cabin area features 12.6 cubic feet of space, expanding to 75.5 cubic feet with the seats down. The Hybrid SX Prestige AWD is the most popular model of the three available trim levels. The hybrid 1.6-liter I-4 turbo engine gets up to 39 mpg in the city, which is no small feat.

The Sorento is prepared to help you write a new chapter with your family, thanks to driver-aid technology features, optional AWD, and the available hybrid powertrain. It also achieves up to 24/29 city/highway mpg on the regular gasoline models.

The 2023 Kia Telluride

The Telluride has more features in its base model than many of its competitors. This spacious, three-row SUV has an engine to match its size: a 3.8-liter V-6 with the right combination of power and efficiency. It provides 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway and outputs 291 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. Though you’ll get a tall, well-sculpted SUV capable of towing up to 5,500 lbs, the Kia Telluride’s interior is even more luxurious. The refined riding style and automatic driver assistance keep you calm under pressure and your eyes on the road.

The 2023 Kia Sportage

The Sportage is a fun, confident highway vehicle suitable for families. There are plenty of reassuring benefits, like Kia’s generous new car warranty and a superb hybrid drivetrain. Behind the second row of seats, the best-in-class cargo area provides you with 39.6 cubic feet of storage, giving you more room for luggage, coolers, and other items. As expected, it provides a superb entertainment system and Kia’s latest driver aid and active safety suite.

The Sportage’s engine determines its driving comfort. Most variants have a 181-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder that will meet the demands of most individuals. The 237-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, offered only on the top-tier SX Turbo trim, offers more thrilling acceleration.

The 2023 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul crossover utility vehicle offers a smooth ride and unique design that increases the interior volume, all in an extra affordable but highly customizable package. The Soul makes for an intriguing traveling companion since it stands out among a sea of curved crossovers due to its exceptional handling and boxy shape.

Compared to its competitors, the Kia Soul has a roomier cabin at 120.9 total cubic feet and more cargo space at 24.2 cubic feet. Its interior is highly fashionable, with new colorful trim and textured door panel inserts. The new Soul gets 29 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine provides 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

The 2023 Kia Carnival MVP

Originally Kia’s longstanding minivan in the lineup, the all-new Carnival MVP re-imagines this vehicle into a spacious, stable SUV for bigger families. It has plenty going for it, including sliding side doors, standard LED headlights, an accessory roof rack, and a best-in-class 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 290 horsepower and 3,500 lbs of towing capacity. It’s no surprise that such a sizable vehicle has class-leading cargo space: 40.2 cubic feet expanding to 145.1 cubic feet with the seats lowered.

MVP refers to Multi-Purpose Vehicle, but rest assured, none of the benefits of the Carnival’s minivan past have been lost. With the handy powertrain, advanced technology suite, and a slide-flex system that lets you arrange the cabin exactly how you like it, the Carnival MVP certainly lives up to the term. The dual 12.3-inch panoramic touch-screen displays come with SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Audio, wireless charging, and nine USB ports. A rear-seat entertainment system with device mirror casting is available on the SX or SX Prestige.
