2023 Kia Sportage Rear Angle

Starting with the 2023 model-year, the Kia Sportage compact SUV is now available with a hybrid powertrain. Opting for this version will get you the best possible Kia Sportage gas mileage—although gas-powered models still earn respectable numbers for the segment.

Among hybrid models, you’ll see 2023 Kia Sportage MPG specs as high as 42 miles per gallon in the city and 44 on the highway. Configured with front-wheel drive and a conventional gas powertrain, the Kia Sportage gas mileage tops out at 25 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. Not sure which model is the right fit for your driving needs in North Richland Hills and Arlington? We’ve detailed the Kia Sportage mpg for hybrid and gasoline powertrains in the guide below to help you make the call.

2023 Kia Sportage MPG: Gasoline Powertrains

The gasoline Sportage runs on a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. All in all, it makes solid MPG numbers for the compact SUV segment—which is all the more impressive since the Sportage is larger than most other models in this size category. The Kia Sportage gas mileage will vary depending on your choice between a FWD or AWD configuration:

  • Hybrid Kia Sportage MPG: FWD with 2.5L 4-cylinder Engine – 25 city / 32 highway MPG
  • Hybrid Kia Sportage MPG: AWD with 2.5L 4-cylinder Engine – 23 city / 28 highway MPG

Although the Sportage isn’t focused on off-roading, you can equip bigger tires and higher ground clearance with the X-Pro trim level. However, Denton drivers should keep in mind that as capability increases, the Kia Sportage MPG specs can be expected to drop.

2023 Kia Sportage MPG: Hybrid Powertrains

The hybrid version runs on a turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and a six-speed automatic transmission. Together, they generate 227 horsepower and some pretty sporty acceleration—and in fact, some reviewers even feel that the Sportage Hybrid is a better performer than the gasoline model.

Once again, the drivetrain configuration impacts the 2023 Kia Sportage MPG. Here’s how the numbers look for FWD vs. AWD models:

  • Gasoline Kia Sportage MPG: FWD with Turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder Engine – 42 city / 44 highway MPG
  • Gasoline Kia Sportage MPG: AWD with Turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder Engine – 38 city / 38 highway MPG
