The Bronco is back and ready for adventure.

The Audi e-tron GT - The Engine
A Gran Turismo is a sporty touring car with high driving dynamics, a confident glider. The Audi e-tron GT also has this character. Depending on the model, its electric motors deliver 350 kW (476 hp) or 440 kW (598 hp) of power. This allows dynamic spurts - but just as important is the range of up to 487 kilometers (according to WLTP) that the battery with its 85 kWh net capacity makes possible. Its 800-volt technology allows fast DC charging with up to 270 kW of power. The chassis also rests in the balance of dynamics and comfort; technologies such as Audi drive select, all-wheel steering, controlled damping, three-chamber air suspension, electric all-wheel drive and rear differential lock contribute to this. The wheels are up to 21 inches in size, and the brake discs - optionally made of carbon-fiber ceramic - have a diameter of up to 420 millimeters.

Developed as part of Kia’s new global brand transformation, “Movement that Inspires,” the all-new 2023 Sportage subcompact SUV delivers more of everything for today’s savvy, adventurous and eco-conscious consumers. Exuding the brand’s new “Opposites United” design philosophy, the new Sportage is a welcome addition in a sea of bland-looking subcompact SUVs that crowd today’s market.

Most Sportage trims will now be assembled in the U.S., alongside the award-winning Telluride, Sorento, and K5 at Kia’s manufacturing plant in West Point, Georgia. The Sportage delivers something for everyone, with a diverse lineup and trim levels that include the LX, EX, SX, SX-Prestige and X-Line, while the all-new Sportage X-Pro and X-Pro Prestige trims allow drivers to venture further into nature with off-road ready features including all-terrain tires, among other elements. With several enticing variants to come, the 2023 Sportage will help build Kia’s reputation in electrification, while also strengthening the brand’s commitment to building rugged and capable SUVs. Following in the footsteps of the Sorento, the Sportage will also be available in a hybrid version. Details on that and other powertrains will be revealed at a later date, while gasoline variants are anticipated to go on sale in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2022.
