First Look at the 2022 Kia Sportage
We were itching to get the first look at the new 2022 Kia Sportage, Kia’s number one selling SUV. Kia continues to bring the heat and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. More room, more style, more technology, and all at an affordable price! We want to share some standout features on this exciting new model with you.
With a limited time introductory price from just $34,990 plus on roads for the base model LX 2.0 litre-turbo, the LX is a very highly specified mid-sized SUV. Featuring tonnes of safety technology including forward collision avoidance assist with car, pedestrian, cyclist, junction assist, multi-collision braking, and heaps more.
The base model offers a 8.0″ infotainment touchscreen and a 4.2 multifunctional display, perfect for keeping you in charge of the music and your eyes on the road. We were also delighted to discover that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, and daytime running lights also come standard in the new 2022 Sportage.
All models in the range offer a AWD diesel option with the new Sportage entry AWD diesel starting at just $43,990 plus on roads. The diesel offers 137kW of power and 416Nm of torque, controlled by a very silky 8-speed automatic transmission.
In addition to the LX, Kia have offered us an LX Plus (pictured above in red). Additional features give this LX a slightly increased price tag of $39,990 plus on roads for the petrol model and $46,990 plus on roads for our AWD diesel option.
LX Plus additions:
- 18″ Alloy Wheels

The new Sportage is and feels more roomy than its predecessor. Featuring Kia’s new design language, the 2022 Sportage has an all-new look with a muscular stance and strong, yet refined silhouette. Inside the styling is crisp and bold, with high quality metallic touches and cloth or leather upholstery throughout.
