SUVs and crossovers have become the go-to vehicle choice for most people. Hybrids, electric vehicles, and plug-ins are also steadily gaining popularity over the last few years. Given this, it comes as no surprise that a number of car buyers have begun to purchase hybrid or electric SUVs. Here are our top picks for this segment.
2021 Tesla Model Y
One of the latest additions to Tesla’s offerings, the Model Y is an affordable crossover. The model’s interior arrangement is quite similar to the Model 3. There’s also a touchscreen display and a number of tech options that are offered regardless of which trim you opt for. The Model Y is expected to be sold for under $40,000. However, if you want the optional third-row seating, you will need to shell out an additional $3,000.
2020 Toyota Highlander
This model ranks right in the middle of the electric and hybrid SUV class. It has an efficient powertrain and offers a number of user-friendly features. It has a great predicted reliability rating and makes for a smooth ride. The only downside is that the third row can feel a little cramped. Prices for the Highlander starts at $38,200.
2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
The RAV4 Hybrid is a rather well-rounded SUV that offers truly refined performance, a high-end interior, and impressive fuel economy. It also comes with a number of standard features and ample cargo space. It has a starting price of $28,500, which can go up to $37,030.
2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid
The 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid offers a smooth ride and ample passenger space. The cargo area is roomy as well. The model, however, comes with few standard tech features and the infotainment system is quite out-of-date. That said, if your priority is space, the Honda CR-V Hybrid is a good choice. It costs between $30,560 and $36,350.
2020 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid
The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid offers good fuel economy ratings and a refined interior. The off-road capability is quite exceptional as well. You can buy this SUV for around $35,145.
