POPULAR HYBRIDS

Featured Hybrid Cars and SUVs

Automotive consumers hoping to purchase green often ask, what are the best hybrid cars? Finding the best hybrid car or SUV will depend on how you plan to use the vehicle. For example, will most of your driving be in the city or in stop and go traffic? If yes, consider a hybrid car that gets high mpg for city driving such as the Toyota Prius. If you'll be doing more long-distance driving at highway speeds, you may want to expand your car search to include the Honda Civic Hybrid or two of the most popular larger hybird vehicles, the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Ford Escape SUV Hybrid. We've listed the hybrid vehicles below that are most often compared.

Fuel-efficient high MPG vehicles save automotive consumers money at the pumps and reduce waste. Beginning with the 2008 model year, the EPA began changing the way miles per gallon are calculated for passenger vehicles. For better accuracy, the EPA now considers faster speeds and acceleration, air conditioner use and colder outside temperatures. Not surprisingly, the new mpg rating for most cars was not as high as it may have been in the past. Even though you may choose a green vehicle rated for high mpg, keep in mind that your gas mileage will vary based on your personal driving habits and traffic conditions.
