These three models are the least expensive options, making them among the most popular. The LX in particular is the base model, the one with the lowest starting MSRP of $26,290. The EX starts at $28,290, and the X-Line AWD starts at $31,090. Standard features of the LX include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, LED taillights, an 8-inch touchscreen display, and several advanced driver-assist safety features. The EX builds off that list but has larger 18-inch wheels and a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen. It also adds a lot of driver favorites such as a smart key system and dual-zone climate controls. With even bigger 19-inch wheels, the X-Line AWD is the most premium of the three and offers a unique style and more performance and convenience features like an available smart power liftgate.
The SX and SX Prestige are mid-tier options. The SX starts out just above the X-Line AWD with a starting price of $31,090. The SX Prestige is a bit more than that with its starting price of $33,790. The SX offers 18-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, 12.3-inch dual-panoramic screens, a premium audio system, and more. It’s technologically advanced and luxurious. The SX Prestige has bigger wheels and a few additional convenience features such as front seat ventilation to keep you cool in the summer.
The two highest trim levels are the Sportage X-Pro and the Sportage X-Pro Prestige. The Sportage X-Pro starts at $35,290, and the Sportage X-Pro Prestige starts at $37,090. They both offer active AWD and drive modes, 17-inch wheels, and all-terrain tires, making them good for safe winter driving and off-road driving. The Sportage X-Pro Prestige offers LED projector headlights and LED rear combination tail lights for better visibility.
