Best hybrid SUVs: the 2023-2024 models to keep an eye out for

More and more hybrid options are becoming available on the market; but which ones are the best? Whether you are looking for performance, general capabilities or energy efficiency, here are the models that stand out the most.

Hyundai Tucson hybrid

The compact SUV segment is extremely popular and vehicles like the Tucson truly are an excellent choice. Modern and comfortable vehicles, they offer loads of added technologies.

It currently comes in two hybrid trims combining a 1.6 L 4- cylinder turbo and an electric motor. The regular hybrid uses a 44.2 kW electric motor for a total of 227 horsepower, while the plug-in hybrid brings power up to 261 horsepower, with a 66.9 kW motor.

Given this generous amount of power and a combined consumption of 6.4 and 6.7 L/100 km respectively, they truly are an excellent option in this segment.

Kia Sorento hybrid

Developed in collaboration with the Hyundai Santa Fe, the Sorento is another excellent choice for its category. It offers refined fit and finishes, an urban and modern design, along with a spacious interior.

This midsize SUV is equipped with the same powertrain options as the Tucson hybrid and they offer, 227 or 261 horsepower, depending on selected trim. They require a little bit more fuel while remaining very reasonable, for 6.6 or 6.9 L/100 km and offer a fully electric range of 51 km.

Jeep Wrangler 4xe

The previously mentioned hybrid SUVs are excellent options, although there is one –very important- thing lacking for some drivers: the off-road capabilities.

With a hybrid Jeep, you can combine low fuel consumption with all-terrain skills and outstanding power. The Wrangler 4xe is equipped with a 2.0 L 4- cylinder turbo coupled with a 100 kW electric motor, for a total of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. maximum torque!

For your adventures off the beaten path, this is definitely the best hybrid SUV on the market. You will love the high ground clearance, the Jeep all-wheel drive system and more.

As always, the RAV4 stands out with its outstanding reliability and safety levels, along with the excellent price-quality ratio it offers.

Lexus NX 350 h

If you are looking for all of the qualities of a Toyota, but with an added touch of luxury, Lexus offers several hybrid SUVs, including the NX compact SUV. Positioned between the UX and RX when it comes to size, it offers a luxurious interior with loads of technologies.

As for the powertrain, it combines a 2.5 L 4- cylinder with two electric motors for 240 horsepower with the 350 h engine. Take note that this vehicle also offers a 450 h+ plug-in hybrid powertrain for even more power (304 horsepower).

Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

Lexus might very well be a luxury brand, but Jeep also knows how to truly shine! The Grand Cherokee offers a spacious interior and the same amount of power as the Wrangler, without forgetting the truly outstanding off-road capabilities for which the brand is known for.

You can expect a sumptuous interior and cutting-edge technologies like, for example, the latest generation of the UConnect 5 multimedia system. Luxurious, comfortable and spacious –with a 1,028 L trunk-, it is also the best companion for your adventures!

With the hybrid trim, you can expect remarkable performance. It is also one of the rare hybrid vehicles to offer a towing capacity of up to 6,000 lbs!
