Such vehicles offer more efficient operation than their all-gas peers, but they sometimes require you to sacrifice power. Is that the case with these two autos? 

Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Engine Type
: 2.0L Turbo PHEV
Battery Size: 400-volt 17-kWh Li-ion
Horsepower: 375
Torque: 470 lb-ft
Drive Type: AWD
 
Kira Niro PHEV

Engine Type
: 1.6L GDI PHEV
Battery Size: 240-volt 1.56 kWh Li-ion
Horsepower: 139
Torque: 195 lb-ft
Drive Type: FWD

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is far superior in this comparison because it combines a turbocharged engine and a powerful battery pack. The SUV also offers an eight-speed automatic transmission with a Selec-Trac full-time AWD system and a regenerative brake booster. This muscle and these features provide extra utility, including a 1,588-kg towing capacity.
