The High Altitude trim level boasts heated side mirrors, too, so they won't be fogging up in chilly conditions, either.

These hybrid vehicles are SUVs, so drivers will expect them to excel in off-road conditions and during wintertime. Which one of the pair does better on challenging surfaces?

Such gas-plus-battery vehicles often have less horsepower than their traditional peers, requiring drivers to sacrifice performance. Is that the case with this pair? 

Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Engine
: 2.0L turbocharged PHEV
Horsepower: 375
Battery: Lithium-Ion
 
Kia Niro PHEV

Engine
: 1.6L GDI PHEV
Horsepower: 136
Battery: Lithium-Ion 

The Wrangler 4xe is vastly superior when it comes to power. It is the obvious choice for people who want the advantages of a hybrid without sacrificing performance. 

Even with this extra muscle, the 4xe offers excellent range. Its 17 kWh electric motor can travel for 34 km before the internal combustion engine kicks in. With a full tank of gas and charged battery, the Jeep can keep going for up to 595 km—and it'll be smooth sailing, to boot, courtesy of the 8-speed automatic transmission.

And even with all that efficiency and range, the Wrangler 4xe stills tug along up to 1587.57 kg or accommodate a maximum of 580.6 kg as payload. Therefore, you can take full advantage of its 1.91 m3 total interior cargo volume.
