One of the first vehicles for the tiny crossover SUV market was the Toyota RAV4. But now,
it has fierce rivalry from other cars like the Kia Sportage.
But the RAV4 has a feature that helps it keep one step ahead of the competition.
The RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is a significant advantage that the 2023 Toyota RAV4 has over the 2023 Kia Sportage.
It provides higher performance and fuel efficiency than anything the Sportage has to offer.
The two plug-in hybrid vehicles can simply switch to using their petrol engines for power
They are therefore viable alternatives to electric vehicles because "range anxiety" won't be a problem.
Additionally, the Sportage Plug-In Hybrid gets less petrol than the RAV4 Prime.
It can get up to 94 combined MPGe in electric-only mode and up to 38 combination mpg
In contrast, the Sportage PHEV achieves fuel efficiency ratings of 35 combined mpg in hybrid mode
High-level performance is one advantage of the 2023 Toyota RAV4 Prime crossover SUV.
It outperforms all the 2023 Kia Sportage has to offer and is the best-performing vehicle in the RAV4 series.
