East Bay Auto Repair Shop Reviews 5 Top-Ranked Hybrid Cars

Our East Bay auto body shop works with a lot of clients who want to conserve fuel and protect the environment. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of 5 exciting hybrid cars. Top features to watch for with hybrid cars: EPA mileage estimates, safety ratings, and customer testimonials.

Here are 5 excellent hybrid options:

1. The 2013 Honda Insight

Priced under $20,000, the new Insight gets 41 miles per gallon city (44 mpg highway) and demonstrates far more efficiency than the new Honda Civic Hybrid. The Insight is one of the season’s most talked about compact cars.

2. Ford Fusion Hybrid

Older Ford Fusion Hybrids allegedly failed to meet their EPA estimated mileage. But this newer vehicle gets 47 miles per gallon (city and highway) – pretty impressive for a midsize car.

3. 2013 Toyota Prius c

Once seen as a luxury status symbol, the Prius has evolved to become one of the more affordable hybrids in the market. The subcompact Toyota Prius C clocks in with a super efficiency of 53 miles per gallon (city) and 46 miles per gallon (highway). It beats its “bigger brother,” the standard Toyota Prius, which still manages an impressive 51/48 city/highway mpg rating.

4. 2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

While this midsize SUV is not necessarily the most efficient motor vehicle in Toyota’s catalog — the non-hybrid Highlander actually beats it, in terms of efficiency cost rating — the Highlander Hybrid manages a respectable 28 mile per gallon efficiency.

5. The 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid

Believe it or not, this Ford hybrid bested the Prius in the battle for best hybrid full-size car, thanks to its superior price point (just a hair under $26,000) and great mileage (47 mpg for both city and highway).
