Round 1: Design
With the new Sportage PHEV, Kia has decidedly reached a new milestone. The reviews are unanimous: the car is a tour de force. It makes quite an impression – magnificently striking, but never over the top. From the new signature tiger nose grille to the sleek, powerful side contours and the muscular, sloping back, the new Sportage is inspiring to look at.
The interior exudes the same adventurous, premium character with high-quality details and state-of-the-art equipment. And although the Sportage is compact, it offers more than enough space for all passengers and a generous boot of no less than 540 litres.
The EV6's design is modern, sporty and iconic at the same time. You only need to take one look at the car's unique signature lighting, roof spoiler and automatic flush door handles to know that this Kia will take you into the future.
The interior enhances this feeling even more: the truly unique cockpit completely revolves around the driver. The beautifully designed dashboard boasts two 12,3" curved displays, while the floating centre console gives the generous interior an even more open feel. The EV6 has a spacious rear boot (up to 511 litres) and a 52-litre 'frunk' at the front.
Round 2: Technology
The sumptuous equipment in the new **Kia Sportage Plugin Hybrid **is also top-notch. The eye-catching, state-of-the-art, integrated dual 12,3" curved display offers a fully connected multimedia and infotainment system. In addition to the wide range of driver assistance systems that will keep you safe, the car also offers some very unique features for this segment. For instance, you can park the car remotely and the dual LED headlights with adaptive driving beam will stop you from blinding other road users when using full beam.
Calling the EV6immersive is an understatement. The panoramic dual 12.3-inch curved displays with connected infotainment system and the augmented reality head-up display guarantee here as well, unadulterated driving joy. The innovative i-Pedal allows you to accelerate, decelerate and stop the car with just the accelerator. The EV6 is also packed with advanced features to keep you safe on the road. Oncoming traffic, pedestrians, cyclists, traffic signs, lanes... The car will keep an eye on all of them.
Round 3: Performance and range
The new Sportage PHEV offers the ultimate performance: a pure electric range of up to 70km in the city, carbon emissions of only 25g/km, extremely low fuel consumption of 1.1I/100km, acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in just 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 191km/h!
The EV6has been developed on a brand-new platform, which means new possibilities and optimal performance. Its 528km range, for instance, is extremely impressive. The 800V multi ultra-fast charging system will add 100km to your range in less than 4½ minutes and charge the car from 10 to 80% in only 18 minutes.
This all-electric crossover will shoot from 0 to 100km/h in 5.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of... 188km/h! And the icing on the cake is that the EV6's innovative Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function will easily power your camping gear, film projector or electric bike on the go.
And the winner is...
Well, that depends on whether you're ready to switch to an all-electric car now or whether you prefer a transitional solution.
If you're tempted to move out of your comfort zone, the Kia EV6is a powerful, innovative all-electric crossover that dreams big and performs even better. Crazy fast charging. A long range. A spacious interior. Zero emissions. In short: the new standard for sustainable mobility.
However, if you prefer to enter the electric future via a stopover, enjoy the best of both worlds with a plug-in hybrid combining a combustion engine and electric motor. The brand-new Kia Sportage PHEV strikes the perfect balance between high performance, ground-breaking innovations and ultimate driving comfort.
