2023 Kia Sportage PHEV Preview
The Sportage is Kia's longest-running nameplate, and to keep it fresh, the automaker gave it a complete redesign for the 2023 model year. Kia will offer the new Sportage SUV with a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain for the first time, which will bring an all-electric range of 32 miles to the popular compact crossover. The automaker notes that PHEVs like the Sportage and larger Sorento, along with the brand-new all-electric EV6, are helping it pave the way to a fully electrified future.
The 2023 Kia Sportage PHEV is available in two trim levels: X-Line PHEV AWD and X-Line Prestige PHEV AWD. Both trims pair a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor to provide excellent fuel economy and standard all-wheel drive (AWD).
