It’s tough to take a long road trip with an electric vehicle. You have to find a place to recharge it, and that process takes longer than gassing up a conventional car.
That’s what we love about well-executed plug-in hybrids like the popular 2022 Toyota RAV4 Prime and the newly introduced 2022 Kia Sorento PHEV crossovers. Plug them in and they’ll let you commute to work or run errands without using gasoline. But keep going and they still have a gasoline engine so that you can quickly extend your range at any gas station. For this review, we tested the RAV4 Prime and the Sorento PHEV so we could compare them in eight categories and then name an overall winner. Keep reading to see which one we picked and which fuel-saving SUV is the better choice for you.
