11) 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

$35,795 | U.S. News Score: 6.2/10 | EV-Only Range: 22 mi | 74 MPGe

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is currently the only affordable compact SUV that’s available as a plug-in hybrid. It can’t carry as many people as the standard Outlander, a three-row SUV with room for up to seven people. However, forfeiting the third row translates to more cargo room. The Outlander PHEV’s maximum cargo space of 66.6 cubic feet is above average for the compact SUV segment. 

When its lithium-ion battery pack has a full charge, the Outlander PHEV can travel about 22 miles on all-electric power and gets an estimated 74 MPGe. 

Highlights of this SUV include standard all-wheel drive and a superb new-car warranty. It doesn’t fare well in our rankings, though. Much of the reason for its low placement relates to quality issues, including a below-average predicted reliability rating and mediocre cabin materials.
