The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.

The 2020 Kia Niro is a compelling eco-friendly car for those opposed to Prius-like looks.

Pros
Oh so frugal
Comfortable, roomy interior
Excellent value
SUV-ish looks

Cons
No AWD option
Light on thrills
High-trim version uses more fuel
Automatic emergency braking should be standard

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid ranked #8 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Terrific mpg ratings
Lots of cargo space
Comfortable, spacious seats
Lots of standard driver assistance features

Cons
Uninspiring cabin materials
Lower safety ratings than some rivals

By:

The Hybrid can now be had in a new LE base trim level, further lowering its point of entry. The SE also gains 0.4 inch of ground clearance.

PROS
Great fuel economy for a compact crossover
Small price premium over standard RAV4
One of the biggest, more useful cargo areas of any compact crossover
Advanced safety and driver aids come standard

CONS
Real leather seating is not available
Noticeable shudder when gas engine kicks in
Less useful interior storage as well
Interior more utilitarian in look and feel than those of competitors

Its angled headlamps and sharply creased bodywork give the RAV4 an assertive presence, but don’t be fooled—under the skin, it’s a practical, comfortable, and easygoing ute. A 176-hp 2.5-liter four and a six-speed automatic are standard with either front- or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive hybrid returned 31 mpg in our testing. A 6.1-inch infotainment system is standard on LE, SE, and XLE trims; Limited models get a 7.0-inch unit. An all-new RAV4 hits showrooms before the end of 2018.

Pros
Standard active-safety features,
supremely practical,
impressive towing ability.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
inferior infotainment,
all-new model is imminent.
