Undergoing minimal revisions from the 2024 model, the 2025 Kia Sorento arrives at dealerships with a sense of familiarity.

Pricing for the base LX trim stays consistent, starting at $27,190 for the front-wheel drive version and $28,990 for the all-wheel drive (excluding destination charges).

This stability extends to some higher trims, but a select group sees a modest $100 price increase. The EX, X-Line, SX, SX Prestige, X-Pro, and X-Pro Prestige trims are affected by this adjustment.

For shoppers seeking an eco-friendly option, the hybrid lineup starts with the LX at $28,590. The plug-in hybrid range kicks off with the X-Line, priced at $39,690 before taxes and additional features.

Beyond pricing tweaks, Kia has also enhanced the EX, X-Line, and X-Pro trims for the 2025 model year, offering potential upgrades for those considering these variants. In search of added comfort and convenience? Consider the new Premium Package available for the EX trim of the 2025 Kia Sportage.

This option elevates the driving experience with a panoramic sunroof for an airy feel and a smart power liftgate for effortless cargo access. Meanwhile, the sportier X-Line and X-Pro trims receive a rugged makeover with darkened exterior accents.

Gloss black finishes adorn the front and rear bumpers, side sills, and even the X-Line’s wheels, giving them a bold and off-road-ready look. Kia emphasizes the Sportage’s spacious interior, boasting best-in-class legroom and cargo room for both passengers and gear.

With over 41 inches of legroom in the back and nearly 40 cubic feet of cargo space behind the seats, the Sportage offers ample room for all your adventures. The Kia Sportage offers two distinct engine choices catering to different driving needs.

Those seeking a balance between power and efficiency will find a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine under the hood. This engine utilizes both Multi-Point Injection (MPI) and Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) for optimal performance, generating 187 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque.

An eight-speed automatic transmission seamlessly delivers power to the wheels, with a front-wheel drive configuration being standard. For drivers prioritizing fuel economy and a sportier feel, Kia provides hybrid and plug-in hybrid options.

These electrified variants boast a 1.6-liter turbocharged I4 engine paired with an electric motor, resulting in a combined output of 227 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque for the hybrid and 261 horsepower for the plug-in hybrid.

Both hybrid trims come equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and deliver impressive fuel efficiency figures, with the hybrid achieving up to 43 mpg and the plug-in hybrid reaching 35 mpg.

A fuel-efficient option for those who prioritize affordability is the Kia Sportage with a 2.5-liter engine. This gasoline-powered model achieves an estimated 28 mpg combined with front-wheel drive, dipping slightly to 26-25 mpg with all-wheel drive.

While the Sportage Plug-In Hybrid offers greater fuel economy, its electric driving range is limited to 34 miles. That said, the Sportage remains Kia’s sales leader in the US, having moved nearly 80,000 units in the first half of 2024, a trend that continues from its strong performance in 2023.
