The base level of the 2023 Sportage starts out with the LX, which is found in two different versions, either the front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive edition. Living here in Edmonton, the LX FWD may not be the top choice to handle our tough winter weather, but it still comes loaded with a variety of features. The exterior is highlighted by 17-inch alloy wheels and sleek roof rails, while the interior lets you relax on cloth seats and interact with an 8-inch display audio system, 4.2-inch Supervision instrument cluster and more.

The LX, or LX AWD, exists exactly the same as the LX FWD with one major change of being an all-wheel drive vehicle.
