Kia Sportage Hybrid – Exclusive First Walkaround Review.

The kia sportage hybrid delivers on just about every front the ride quality is excellent the interior is spacious and the rear hatch opens to a massive cargo area there’s some clever interior storage up front as well as lots of available in-car tech and a full suite of driver aids fuel economy didn’t quite live up to expectations but we have few complaints

About this electrified compact crossover what’s new we can mention four main innovations kia’s compact hybrid suv is completely redesigned larger and loaded with more tech than the previous model first sportage with a hybrid powertrain launches the fifth sportage generation for 2023 the kia sportage was completely redesigned for the 2023 model year and for

The first time there’s an available hybrid model it’s the brand’s third hybrid suv positioned above the smaller hybrid nero and below the larger sorrento hybrid looking at it most won’t think it’s a sportage because it looks nothing like the previous model and its interior is a vast improvement over the last one the compact suv is larger offering more passenger

And cargo room in fact its cargo now offers more space than the toyota rav4 hybrid and honda crv hybrid under the hood is a fuel sipping hybrid powertrain that consists of a turbocharged 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor a hybrid battery pack and a six-speed automatic transmission the total system output is 227 horsepower which is a

Bit more than you’ll find in the crv hybrid and rav4 hybrid when it comes to comfort the new sportage hybrid has you covered the interior provides ample room for all passengers and the back seats have a class leading 41.3 inches of legroom the sportage hybrid is one of the quickest hybrid crossovers in its class while we wouldn’t call it blistering it doesn’t

Feel like there’s a performance penalty when you opt for the hybrid the turbocharged engine provides smooth power and you don’t feel when the sportage handoff from electric to gas power passing on the highway is easy thanks to the power and a quick shifting of somewhat clunky transmission it’s not sporty but the sportage handles well enough for a crossover

The steering is quick and accurate it’s light in comfort making parking easy switching to sport increases the steering effort and sharpens throttle response but there’s still not much in the way of feedback as with the powertrain the brakes are impressive for a hybrid the pedal is firm rather than soft and spongy like on some other hybrid vehicles with 39.5

Cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 73.7 cubes with that row folded down the sportage hybrid is one of the most spacious crossovers in this class hybrid or not unlike some of its rivals the sportage hybrid loses no space relative to its non-hybrid counterpart comfort is one of the sportage hybrid strong suits it offers a quiet comfortable cabin

And a refined ride that won’t break your back after hours behind the wheel the front seats are soft and offer good lateral support without feeling overly tight the rear seat is well padded but a bit flat what’s really impressive is the ride quality it’s smooth and compliant the suspension evens out bumps but it doesn’t feel overly soft or disconnected from

The road it’s one of the best riding crossovers around today at low speeds when the engine is off there’s only a little outside noise in the cabin even at higher speeds wind and road noise is mild we also like that you don’t feel vibrations or hear the gas engine fire up every time since it’s not a particularly pleasant exhaust note the automatic climate

Control system can be a bit odd to use at first but it works evenly vent placement is good too especially in the rear the sportage hybrid packs a handsome and well organized interior the driving position offers a decent range of adjustment for the seat and steering wheel and there’s excellent passenger space in both rows even for taller adults it’s fairly

Easy to get in and out of 2. aided further by the available smart park feature even if it’s a bit of a novelty the controls are easy to reach and fairly straightforward to use at least once you find the switch that swaps the climate controls for the media and navigation controls the driving position offers a decent range of adjustment as far as the seat and

Steering will go the infotainment screen and other controls are angled toward the driver so nothing is a stretch to push or operate standard features include apple carplay and android auto and a plethora of usb ports and wireless charging pad as well as 12.3 inch displays for both the instrument cluster and infotainment system the sportage is available with

Loads of driver aids including adaptive cruise control blind spot monitoring a surround view monitor and parking assist thank you for following us in our next video we will present to your attention a new car don’t forget to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss our new videos if you have a car brand that you want to see you can write in the comments
