Kia Sportage 48v mild-hybrid

48v mild-hybrid crossover – Kia Sportage

2.0-litre diesel power engine with 48-volt battery addition and starter-generator which “extends engine-off time”, improves acceleration and reduces CO2 emissions by up to four per cent.


Kia says it will launch more “advanced powertrain vehicles” till 2025. They were precise about it: five hybrids, five PHEVs, five pure-EVs and an FCV.

The 1.7-litre diesel has been replaced with 1.6. There are new driver assistance systems, new front and rear bumpers, redesigned headlights and more alloy wheels to choose from. Inside there’s a new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a smarter instrument cluster.
