We’re excited to see what the new Kia Sorento PHEV can do! It can be plugged in to gain an electric charge that saves plenty of fuel. However, electricity doesn’t come cheap. We’re a little shocked by how much the 2023 Kia Sorento PHEV costs.

2023 Kia Sorento PHEV | Kia

The 2023 Kia Sorento PHEV price starts at $51,095, which is a $1,710 increase over the outgoing model. Also, this includes the $1,295 destination fee but not dealership markups. One of the reasons for the price increase includes dropping lower trim options.

For 2023, the Sorento PHEV is only available with the SX-P trim. The SX option was dropped. That P stands for Prestige, so at least it should be pretty upscale.

The gas-powered Sorento starts at is expected to start around $30,000, so what makes the PHEV worth an extra $20,000? The Sorento Hybrid SX starts at $37,885, and the cheaper S trim was dropped. It has a $2,500 increase.

How much power does the Sorento PHEV have?

The 2023 Kia Sorento PHEV is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and a lithium-ion battery pack. It cranks out 261 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate from o to 60 mph in about 7.4 seconds.

It can tow about 2,000 lbs. Also, the official EPA ratings haven’t been released, but the Sorento PHEV is expected to deliver 32 miles of all-electric range and about 79 MPGe. With just gas, it gets about 32 mpg.

The Kia Sorento Hybrid also uses the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. It’s paired with an electric motor and cranks out 227 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It can reach 60 mph in about 7.6 seconds.

It gets an estimated 665 miles of range on a single tank. It’s good for about 35 mpg in the city and up to 39 mpg in the city. It has the best-in-class fuel economy.

While the hybrid model never has to be plugged in, the PHEV comes with standard AWD. You don’t exactly have to charge the PHEV either unless you want the 32 miles of electric range.

The generative brakes will charge the battery. Plus, it charges in under three hours using a 240-volt plug or a level 2 charger.

What comes with the Sorento PHEV?

The 2023 Kia Sorento PHEV is loaded with comfort and convenience features. It has leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats,  a heated steering wheel, and captain’s chairs in the second row.

Upgraded tech includes a 10.25-inch infotainment system, built-in navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a hands-free liftgate, an upgraded 12-speaker Bose system, a digital gauge cluster, a blind-spot mirror, and a 360-degree camera system.

Safety features include forward collision mitigation, lane-keeping assist, rear parking sensors, automatic rear braking, driver attention warning, blind-spot warning, and adaptive cruise control.

The new Kia Sorento PHEV has a luxury price but also comes with plenty of value. It’s still worth buying with the extra price hike. However, we’re bummed about losing some of the more affordable trims.
