The Lexus RX 450h continues to top our list of Hybrid SUVs and it really isn't hard to see why. A spacious, comfortable, and luxurious SUV that also makes the most of its hybrid powerplant. Second on the list remains the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, a cousin of the Lexus and as such packing many of the same benefits, including a smooth ride and good cargo space.
The burly Infiniti QX60 Hybrid stays in the top five, just ahead of a newcomer into the ranks—the Ford Escape Hybrid, bringing crossover-driving experience and vast cargo space (68 cubic feet with the seats down in the 2019 model) to the table. The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid secures the number-seven spot on our list, with the E-Hybrid plug-in powerplant giving fantastic versatility in a luxury package. The Pathfinder is the Rogue's bigger sibling, with a more performance-orientated hybrid power unit featuring a supercharged 2.5L four-cylinder petrol engine with start-stop technology in the 2019 model. When you need a rugged SUV to tackle any surface while still offering great comfort and space, the Pathfinder is the one.
As you can see, there are plenty of hybrid choices available to suit your needs. And whatever your priorities are, be it luxury, comfort, practicality, saving time at the pump, or go-anywhere performance, there's a hybrid SUV on this list for you.
