The 2023 Kia Sportage Plug-In Hybrid EX Premium is a revolutionary leap in Kia's compact SUV line with its avant-garde aesthetics. Its plug-in hybrid feature, the first for Sportage series, promises power, performance, and efficiency, making it the most potent version yet.

The 2023 Kia Sportage Plug-In Hybrid EX Premium is a radical transformation of Kia’s compact SUV lineup, showcasing a groundbreaking design that seems to be conceived from an extraterrestrial inspiration. This fifth iteration of Sportage introduces hybrid technology into the series for the first time, marking a significant evolution in its lineage. The inclusion of a potent 226-horsepower hybrid effectively takes the place of the previous model’s optional turbo four-cylinder engine. However, the standout is undoubtedly the brand new plug-in hybrid variant that delivers a whopping 261 horsepower, earning it the title of the strongest Sportage to date.

This plug-in hybrid powertrain adds a noticeable surge to the Sportage’s performance, offering more excitement compared to the base model we tested earlier this year. Though this extra power doesn’t turn it into a sports car, it does significantly enhance its commuting capabilities and increase fuel efficiency. So whether you’re going for everyday errands or embarking on a weekend getaway, you’ll not only enjoy a smooth and powerful ride but also savings at the fuel pump.
