AutoComplete: Our favorite hybrid crossovers for 2020
Howdy everyone Emmy Hall here with your latest edition of auto complete.
Now if you're like me, you might be needing a tiny little break from corona virus news and I am happy to give it to you.
Today I'm going to tell you all about my three favorite hybrid SUVs.
Now the good thing about hybrids is that not only do they deliver better food Fuel economy but they often deliver more power than their gas outer parts as well.
The newest kid on the block is the 2020 Honda CRV Hybrid.
The two leader four cylinder is helped a long by two electric motors.
Producing 212 horsepower.
That's compared to the 190 horsepower of the gas and up to 232 pound feet of torque compared to the poultry 179 pound feet in the guest CRV.
The EPA combined fuel rating is 38 miles per gallon but even better, the hybrid CRV starts at under $29,000.
Now the CRV doesn't have much of an all electric range maybe a mile or two If you're looking for a hybrid SUV that might be commutable using only electric power and is also crazytown fun.
Why don't you look at the Porsche Cayenne e hybrid?
Sure it starts at around $80,000.
But the 14.1 kilowatt hour battery holds enough juice for 20 miles of all electric range.
All that coin also gets you a three liter turbocharged V six that gets electrified to the tune of 455 horsepower and 516 pound feet of torque.
Now the bummer here is that the EPA doesn't have fuel economy estimates yet but with torque like that, I don't really care.
But hey, it's a special someone who can afford to drop that kind of cash money on a car.
So I'll bring it on back to reality with the rav4 hybrid from Toyota.
And electric motor helps out the 2.5 litre four cylinder engine bringing it up to 219 horsepower.
I'd like the RAV4 for it's more rugged looks and it's standard drivers aids like adaptive cruise control.
I also dig on the 40 miles per gallon combined that the little guy returns and the starting price, like the hybrid CRV starts at under $29,000 When I don't like that's the Intune infotainment system.
Now, there are other options out there from the ridiculous like the Bentley Bentley hybrid to the sublime like the Mercedes Benz GLE450 with its mild hybrid system With many manufacturers committing to adding some kind of electrification across their lineup in the next few years, expect to see more and more hybrids enter the marketplace.
