2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid Trims & Specs

Kia offers five hybridized versions of the Sportage, two of which are Plug-In variants and three of which are standard Hybrid models. A 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is standard for all models in the range. In the Sportage Hybrid, the engine is augmented with a single electric motor for 227 horsepower while the Sportage Plug-In Hybrid gets a more powerful electric motor and a battery pack. Both the HEV and the PHEV come with a six-speed automatic transmission that cedes power to either the FWD or AWD in the entry-spec Hybrid, while the rest of the lineup is AWD-only.

In terms of features, Kia starts the all-new Sportage HEV/PHEV line off strong, making LED exterior lighting, big alloy wheels, keyless entry, and push-button start all standard fare. The manually-adjustable front seats and woven cloth seating upholstery in the lower-tier models are a bit basic, but moving up the line sees the installation of extensive power-adjustability, heating, and even ventilation in the top-spec model, as well as upholstery upgrades from cloth to SynTex, to premium SynTex. An eight-inch touchscreen tethered to a six-speaker audio system is standard in the entry-spec model, and though it does come inclusive of both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, the 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen standard throughout the rest of the lineup just carries so much more appeal. Kia also builds onto an already strong selection of infotainment functionalities and driver-assistance features as one moves up the trim line.
