According to a Kia press release, the price for the new Sportage 2023 Hybrid SUV (HEV) will start at $27,290.

The 2023 Sportage HEV is the first electrified version of the brand’s stylish SUV. The Kia Sportage is the third model in an ongoing series of eco-friendly offerings under “Plan S,” Kia’s global product electrification strategy.

This model is the successor to the previously introduced EV6 and Sorento HEV and PHEV models and is yet another example of Kia’s many electrification efforts. The Sportage HEV is not the largest SUV in Kia’s line-up, but it boasts impressive proportions that put it at the top of its class as determined by Kia Segmentation, while offering fun-to-drive, fuel efficiency and versatility through best-in-class rear legroom and cargo space.

The Sportage’s “Opposites United” design represents a new evolution in the company’s design philosophy, which is evident across all of Kia’s latest innovations. It’s a combination of contemporary styling and sporty visuals that has made the Sportage even more visible on the road than it was before.

The interior holds up to the mark, with quality and fitment of materials at an excellent level. The filling of the car is the latest technologies and solutions, without which it is already impossible to imagine a modern car. All together, this is an extensive list of ADAS functions and two panoramic screens (12.3-inch dashboard display and 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system) with a diagonal of almost 25 inches.

Electrified performance comes from a hybrid powertrain that combines a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine and a 44-kilowatt electric motor, allowing it to to achieve up to 39 mpg. Together, the engine and electric motor produce 227 horsepower, which is transmitted to the front wheels or distributed through active all-wheel drive.

Sales of the Sportage HEV are scheduled to begin in the spring of 2022.
