14. Kia Sportage
2022 Sales: 125,245
Vs. 2021: 32.4%
The best-selling model in Kia’s U.S. lineup, the Sportage is one of the few SUVs on this list with positive sales growth versus last year. This success can be attributed to the arrival of the updated 2023 Sportage, which features a bold new design and for the first time adds hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. Built on the same platform as the Sorento, the new Sportage is 7.1 inches longer and rides on a 3.4-inch longer wheelbase. The Sportage Hybrid is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline direct injection engine producing 177 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, combined with a 44 kW electric motor and a 13 kW starter generator for a total combined output of 227 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
