As is usually the case, the top spot within the XC60 range is reserved for a hybrid model. The T8 eAWD starts from just under $53,000 and offers as much as 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque. Power comes courtesy of its 2.0L turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder engine and an 87-horsepower electric motor.
We could build an entire list of Ford cars under $5000, but the best of them is arguably the Ford Fusion. The Fusion offers a more comfortable and quiet ride than the Fiesta or Focus and is roomier than a Ford Mustang. Under the hood, you will normally find a tough and efficient 2.3L four-cylinder engine capable of 29 mpg on the highway. You also get a stylish car that can easily seat five and is fairly inexpensive to insure.
The upcoming 2019 Land Rover Range Rover P400e plug-in hybrid will be powered by a 4-cylinder engine. The 2.0l turbocharged unit should be capable of making 296 hp on its own. Thanks to a 114-horsepower electric motor and a 13.1 kWh battery pack, the net output should climb to a total of 398 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque.
The plug-in hybrid Niro won’t be the last in the line of fuel-efficient Niros. The South Korean automaker is planning on introducing the Niro EV as well, sometime during the MY 2019. The Niro EV Concept boasts a 201-horsepower electric motor and a 64 kWh battery pack for a 238-mile range.
