2024 Kia Niro and Niro Plug-In Hybrid

Price: $28,315 (Hybrid); $35,765 (Plug-In Hybrid)
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 40-53 mpg combined

If your lifestyle can't accept the full-on Kia Niro EV, don't worry, Kia also makes hybrid and plug-in-hybrid versions that offer more versatility in the same funky, cool package. The Niro's powertrain combines a 1.6-liter four-cylinder to an electric motor to produce a total of 139 horsepower in the hybrid and 180 horsepower in the plug-in hybrid. There's no all-wheel drive option, and the transmission is a six-speed dual-clutch automatic.

2024 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid

Price: $29,570
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 42 mpg combined

Need to keep your footprint small? Consider the Toyota Corolla Cross hybrid. The subcompact SUV isn't much to write home about in nonhybrid form, but the hybrid model squeezes 196 hp from a 2.0-liter inline-four and three electric motors, resulting in standard all-wheel-drive and surprisingly quick acceleration.

2024 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 Prime

Price: $33,075 (Hybrid); $45,040 (Prime)
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 39 mpg combined

The Toyota RAV4 is far from an enthusiast car, but the more powerful hybrid is the best RAV4 to drive and the only model that offers the XSE trim with sport-tuned dampers and steering. Not only does it handle better, the RAV4 Hybrid gets up to 41 mpg in the city. The plug-in-hybrid variant, the RAV4 Prime, makes a combined 302 hp and offers up to 42 miles of electric driving. Its surprisingly potent combination of an inline-four and two electric motors makes for a sprint to 60 mph that can beat some entry-level sports cars. Sounds like a fun time to us.

2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid

Price: $33,950 (Hybrid); $40,100 (Plug-in Hybrid)
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 35–38 mpg combined

The Hyundai Tucson's eye-catching design and 10 year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty aren't the only things it has going for it. The plug-in hybrid version is a legitimately great deal, with 33 miles of all-electric range thanks to an onboard 13.8-kWh battery pack.

2025 Honda CR-V Hybrid

Price: $35,700
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 40 mpg

The Honda CR-V got a revamp for the 2023 model year, with new looks and a brand-new interior that we love. The hybrid model is the pick of the range, with 204 hp and a combined fuel rating of up to 40 mpg. As far as "normal" crossovers go, you can't get much better than this.

2024 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid

Price: $38,365
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 36 mpg combined

The Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid represents a great value, and not just because it can save you money on gas. It gets 231 hp thanks to a standard turbocharged engine, along with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Santa Fe's 2024 redesign also brought an interesting new boxy look, plus a radically new interior with nice materials, lots of space and standard third-row seating.

2025 Kia Sorento Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid

Price: $40,065 (Hybrid); $49,365 (Plug-in Hybrid)
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 34-36 mpg combined

The Kia Sorento is a mid-size SUV with standard third-row seating, and it's offered as both a conventional hybrid and a plug-in hybrid with a larger battery pack and some electric-only driving range. Though both versions use a turbocharged 1.6-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine, the plug-in gets a slightly more powerful setup. All-wheel drive is optional on the hybrid and standard on the plug-in hybrid.

2024 Mazda CX-90 PHEV

Price: $51,400
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 25 mpg combined

While the plug-in-hybrid version of the Mazda CX-90 might not have the straight-six, we still prefer it over the mild-hybrid model. It pairs an inline-four engine to an electric motor and a 17.8-kWh battery pack for 323 horses, plus 26 miles of all-electric range—enough to avoid using gasoline during an average commute.

2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Price: $52,590
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 20 mpg combined

A hybridized Jeep Wrangler sounds like a weird proposition, but in practice, it's the highlight of the range. The 4xe PHEV makes an impressive 375 hp, and thanks to a 17-kWh onboard battery, it can go up to 25 miles on purely electric power. Not bad considering the SUV's blocky, anti-aerodynamic shape.

2024 Toyota Grand Highlander Hybrid Max

Price: $55,435
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 27 mpg combined

Who thought a Highlander could move fast? That's the mission of the Grand Highlander Hybrid Max, which scoots this elongated three-row SUV to 60 mph in under 6.0 seconds. There's plenty of torque (400 lb-ft) and a six-speed automatic transmission instead of a sappy CVT, but fuel efficiency is not a top priority. That's OK by us. There's also a less powerful but more efficient hybrid version of the Grand Highlander available for a bit less money.

2024 Toyota Land Cruiser

Price: $57,345
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 23 mpg combined

Yes, that's right: the revived Toyota Land Cruiser is now available only as a hybrid. While it's far from the most thrifty vehicle on this list, it offers impressive efficiency for something with standard four-wheel drive and plenty of off-road capability. That's because Toyota's i-Force Max hybrid setup is under the hood with a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine. It produces 326 horsepower in this application.

2025 Volvo XC60 Recharge

Price: $59,345
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 28 mpg combined

Volvo plug-in hybrids are quick. Take the XC60 Recharge, which casually makes 455 hp and catapults to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. The Polestar Engineered trim pictured here is very racy for Volvo, with forged wheels, Akebono brakes and manually adjustable Öhlins dampers.

2024 Audi Q5 55 TFSI e

Price: $59,695
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 26 mpg combined

The Q5 is a very popular car in the compact luxury SUV segment, but the plug-in hybrid is a rare find. The turbo four combined with electric assist is good for 362 hp, 369 pound-feet, and 60 mph in five seconds flat. That's nearly as quick as the SQ5, but with 23 miles of all-electric range.

2024 Toyota Sequoia

Price: $63,125
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 22 mpg combined

The Sequoia's only available drivetrain is Toyota's iForce Max system, which combines a 3.4-liter twin-turbo V-6 with an electric motor between the engine and the 10-speed transmission. There's 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for hauling the kids and their gear to soccer practice. It's also enough to sprint to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds.

2024 Lexus RX500h F Sport Performance

Price: $64,100
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 27 mpg combined

The Lexus RX is offered with three different available hybrid powertrains. No surprise, we're fans of the most powerful option in the RX500h. It pairs a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine to an electric motor to make 367 hp, enough to sprint the RX to 60 mph in under six seconds.

2025 Volvo XC90 Recharge

Price: $73,195
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 27 mpg combined

The Volvo XC90 has been on sale for a long time, but we haven't stopped loving it. The hybrid model, called Recharge, is a particularly attractive trim, delivering 455 hp thanks to a turbo-four and an electric motor. The XC90 Recharge is legitimately quick, able to sprint to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, enough to smoke real performance cars in a straight line.

2025 BMW X5 xDrive50e

Price: $74,275
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 22 mpg combined

Weirdly enough, BMW's best all-around products right now are its SUVs. That's doubly true for the hybrid version of the X5, the xDrive50e. It pairs a turbocharged inline-six with a single electric motor for an impressive 483 hp. Factor in the handsome design and slick, modern cabin—both refreshed with new lighting and screens—and you have yourself a winner on all fronts.

2025 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

Price: $99,195
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 25 mpg combined (est.)

Of all the models available in the Cayenne lineup, we think the best choice for daily driving remains the E-Hybrid model. It combines the base Cayenne's turbocharged V-6 with an electric motor and a 20.6-kWh battery for 463 total horses, which is respectable for a Porsche.

2024 Land Rover Range Rover P550e

Price: $142,575

The plug-in-hybrid version of the 2024 Range Rover also happens to be the second most powerful trim available, just behind the top-tier SV model. While other big-power trims use a BMW-derived V-8, the P550e uses a straight-six combined to an electric motor for a combined 542 hp.

2024 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid

Price: $206,350
EPA-estimated fuel economy: 46 MPGe combined

If you'd like your hybrid SUV experience to be as opulent as possible, Bentley has the vehicle for you: the Bentayga Hybrid. The 3.0-liter V-6 hybrid powertrain delivers 443 hp, which is more than enough for ferrying designer goods to and from stores and your home. Best of all, the hybrid is a no-cost option over the standard twin-turbo V-8.
