Looking for a hybrid SUV that's not too big and not too small? You'll love the 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid. The Sportage Hybrid is a completely redesigned model that brings together decades of industry knowledge into a state-of-the-art SUV. As Kia's third hybrid, the Sportage Hybrid is a great midsize SUV, giving it the versatility of a compact yet capacious body.
The 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid has three trims to suit your lifestyle. If you don't plan to tackle rough roads or head out on rural adventures, the base LX trim, which comes with either two- or four-wheel drive, is a solid choice. If you want to take full advantage of the Sportage Hybrid's SUV body, the next-level EX and SX trims offer four-wheel drive and a handful of interior upgrades, including cruise control and a heated steering wheel.
Across all three trims, the foundation of the 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid is a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine. Paired with an electric motor and hybrid battery pack, the Sportage Hybrid's six-speed automatic transmission pumps out 227 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, which is enough power to go from zero to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). Using a home charger, the 44.2 kW battery can reach a full charge in approximately two hours, which means you can drive in all-electric mode and skip the gas station while you're running errands around town. Altogether, the two-wheel-drive Sportage Hybrid clocks in an impressive EPA-estimated 43 mpg combined (38 mpg on four-wheel-drive models).
With seating for five, the 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid can pack in your family plus all the gear you need for a weekend expedition. With almost equal legroom in the front and back (41.4 inches vs. 41.3 inches, respectively), long hauls will have everyone stretching out and getting comfortable. Enjoy heated front seats starting with the base LX trim, leatherette seats on the EX trim, and ventilated seats throughout with the top-line SX trim. In addition, you'll get 40 cu-ft of cargo space in the trunk, along with a dual-level cargo floor.
Most of the 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid's tech comes standard on the base LX trim. Driver aids like a rearview camera, parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning provide peace of mind for every journey. When it comes to entertainment to make your drives more enjoyable, this SUV has a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Bluetooth® capabilities.
