As the demand for fuel-efficient vehicles continues to rise, hybrid SUVs are becoming increasingly popular. In this article, we’ll be taking a look at the best hybrid SUVs under $50,000 MSRP.

2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid

The best hybrid SUV in 2024 is the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.

First on the list is the 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid. This car features a sleek re-design with an aggressive new grille and standard LED headlights. Many Tucson Hybrid owners comment on the newfound pep behind a 1.6-liter turbo paired with a 44.2 kilowatt electric motor and refined 6-speed transmission that shifts seamlessly between gears while producing 226 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. 

At a combined 38 MPG and a starting price under $30,000, the Tucson is an excellent choice for those looking for an efficient and reasonably priced SUV. Hyundai also offers 3 years of complimentary maintenance, a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain and hybrid components warranty, as well as a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.

The 2024 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid delivers amazing reliability and fuel-efficiency, reaching 43 MPG. That’s no easy feat for anything other than an EV. When Toyota gets something right, they stay with it until it breaks. However, for 2024, the infotainment system has finally been upgraded.

The phenomenal 2024 Toyota Highlander is easily the best ride of the group, but it’s also the most expensive, topping out just under $60,000. The Highlander Hybrid is one of the only hybrid SUVs available with third-row seating. The 2024 Toyota loses little if any of the luxurious feel of the gas version of itself and adds a standard digital instrument panel to all models. Higher trim levels now sport an upgraded 12.3-inch touchscreen. The Highlander Hybrid is sufficiently powerful, considering it can produce up to 243 horsepower. Considered the most reliable hybrid SUV on the list, treat yourself to comfort with the 2024 Highlander seating up to 8 people and gaining a combined 36 MPG.

Finally, the fully redesigned 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid comes in two different trims: the Sport Hybrid and the Sport Touring Hybrid. The front-wheel drive model matches the Kia Sportage with a best-in-class 43 MPG city. Both are also propelled by a powertrain featuring a 2.0 4-cycle Atkinson engine and an electric motor garnering an output of 204 horsepower. If you like reliability, refreshingly designed interior technology, and a spacious interior, the Honda CR-V is sure to please.

    I have 2022 Kia Sorento S hybrid. It’s my second Kia Sorento and I love it. The best part is I only have to fill up every 12-14 days. Of course it helps that I have job that’s 9 miles from home and the speed limit thru town is 35 max! So getting truck is well worth it. I have traveled long distances and still have plenty of gas to spare.
