2023 Kia Sportage PHEV
A 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 177 horsepower powers the Sportage PHEV, teamed with a 66.9 kW (90 horsepower) electric motor for an estimated total output of 261 horsepower. Many hybrids on the market use a continuously variable transmission, but not the Sportage. Kia equips the PHEV with a 6-speed automatic — a great idea in our opinion. The 2023 Kia Sportage PHEV has a 13.8-kWh lithium-polymer battery providing enough energy to enable an electric-only range of an estimated 32 miles. When plugged into a Level 2 charger, the Sportage PHEV can be fully recharged in about two hours.
