Kia keeps beating expectations and we expect more of the same in 2023 at Bill Walsh Kia in Ottawa IL. Last year, the three-row Kia Telluride was a major hit and so were the introductions of the Kia Sportage Hybrid and Kia Sorento Hybrid. The 2022 Kia EV6 electric crossover was another big hit so there's a lot of momentum behind the Kia wave. For 2023, expect more great styling, new trims and features. Here's a preview of coming Kia attractions.

What's new for the 2023 Kia Sportage

As one of Kia's best selling models, the Sportage leads the parade of Kia success stories. The 5th generation is larger than its predecessor and presents a bold exterior. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generates 187 horsepower to help you navigate highways around Joliet and Naperville, IL. The Kia Sportage Hybrid is good for 226 horsepower and can travel an amazing 589 miles on a single tank. A rugged X-Pro trim is ready to go off-road with a suspension lift and all-terrain tires.

What's new for the 2023 Kia Telluride

The three-row Kia Telluride was well-received from the moment it hit showroom floors in 2020, earning “SUV of the Year” honors from MotorTrend. For the 2023 model year, the Kia Telluride gets exterior enhancements, new trim levels and interior revisions. Upgrades in the cabin include a 12.3-inch curved infotainment screen and a bigger head up display.

What's new for the 2023 Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento EX is now the entry-level model and comes with a standard eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. There's a new SX-P trim at the top of the line that comes with all-wheel drive, a power tailgate that opens automatically and a premium Bose stereo.

What's new for the 2023 Kia Soul

Kia has trimmed down the number of 2023 Soul models and provided an updated design with a new front grille, fog lights and new taillights that will stand out around Morris and Peru IL. All Kia Soul models now come with a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine. Kia has added more standard safety features including navigation-based adaptive cruise control. A Harman Kardon premium sound system is an available option.

What's new for the 2023 Kia Seltos

The Kia Seltos enters the new year quietly with better noise reduction. The front wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions of the S trim now come with more safety features. There are driver assistance updates that include a rear cross-traffic collision avoidance system and rear blind spot collision avoidance. The 2023 Kia Seltos comes with a distinctive exterior design and has plenty of cargo room.

What's new for the 2023 Kia Niro

The Kia Niro is generating some buzz with redesigned styling. It's now available as a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and an EV. Engineers managed to make the Kia Niro bigger outside and roomier inside while giving it a lighter curb weight. The hybrid powertrain now gets enhanced cooling and combustion technology. Inside you'll find two standard 10.3 inch touch screens, one for the digital gauge cluster and one for infotainment.
