The 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid | Toyota

When it comes to hybrid tech, few automakers can be mentioned in the same breath as Toyota. Japanese automaker Toyota first produced the Prius hybrid way back in 1997. Decades later, the brand is responsible for some of the most popular hybrid vehicles in the world.

The Prius nameplate has had its ups and downs, but it’s tough to argue with its fuel economy. The Toyota Prius is far from the most exciting vehicle to drive, so the automaker added plenty of other hybrid powertrain options to its lineup.

Toyota introduced the RAV4 Hybrid back in 2016. The RAV4 was a natural candidate to receive a hybrid powertrain option because of its popularity. Why not make America’s most popular compact SUV even more fuel-efficient?

The 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid starts at just $29,575. Leave it to Toyota to make an affordable hybrid SUV. The RAV4 Hybrid makes 219 horses thanks to its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. It achieves an incredible 41 miles per gallon in the city and 38 miles per gallon on the highway. That’s better mpg combined than a Honda Civic sedan. When it comes to value, it’s hard to beat the RAV4 Hybrid.

The 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid brings the value

South Korean automaker Kia is practically synonymous with value. Models like the Soul and Telluride provide incredible value for the money. The brand’s new Sportage Hybrid compact SUV is no different.

The 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid starts at $27,290. It uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, electric motor, and lithium battery to make 227 horsepower. The compact hybrid SUV gets 42 miles per gallon in the city and 44 miles per gallon on the highway. Talk about a fuel sipper.

The Sportage Hybrid is spacious and comes with plenty of standard features. It’s easily one of the best new hybrid SUVs on the market.

The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid drives a hard bargain

The 2023 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid is another small South Korean hybrid SUV that provides plenty of value for the money. It starts at $30,900. The Tucson Hybrid uses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, electric motor, and lithium battery to make 226 horsepower. It achieves 38 miles per gallon in the city and 38 miles per gallon on the highway.

The Tucson was recently redesigned, so the Tucson Hybrid features a bold exterior. It’s affordable and powerful for its size. Kelley Blue Book praises its pricing.

If you’re looking for a great compact hybrid SUV, you don’t have to break the bank. There are plenty of great options that start under $31K.
