If you’ve been looking for a fuel-efficient midsize family sedan, the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid is an excellent pick. With an MSRP from $26,790*, this car seats five adults and comes standard with a 2.5L inline-four engine mated to an electric motor and hybrid battery. It produces 200 hp delivered to the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Fuel economy is strong at an EPA-estimated 42 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. In addition to its impressive performance, the Camry Hybrid comes standard with advanced technologies like the Toyota Entune infotainment system, Siri Eyes Free voice activation, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Experience the lavish cabin and cavernous dimensions of the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. This plush full-size sedan boasts standard luxury features like leather seat trim, heated front seats, and advanced tech like a rearview camera, satellite radio, and an eight-speaker stereo. The total interior volume measures 116.3 cubic feet, which is plenty of room for five adults to sit comfortably. The trunk is also spacious at 14.0 cubic feet.
Like the Toyota Camry Hybrid, it comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and an electric motor which combine to make 200 hp, though the larger size reduces fuel economy just slightly to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg city and 39 mpg highway.
Toyota brought hybrid technology to a whole new segment last year, and now the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid continues to expand upon that. This small crossover provides more versatility and cargo area in a fuel-efficient vehicle. Also powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine on one end of the powertrain, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid also gets an electric motor in both the front and the back, producing a total output of 194 hp. This power is delivered to the front wheels in normal conditions, but it will also engage the rear wheels for confident all-wheel drive performance when needed. This model can reach up to an EPA-estimated 34 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. Expect to pay from $29,030 MSRP.*
Whoever said buying a large, three-row crossover SUV kept you from achieving great fuel economy? The 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a living contradiction, because that’s exactly what it does. With standard seating for seven in an interior that measures 154.9 cubic feet and a maximum cargo volume of 83.2 cubic feet, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid has space for everything at an MSRP from $36,270.*
The Highlander Hybrid runs on a 3.5L V6 engine and different electric motors with a hybrid battery pack. The total output of this system is a robust 306 hp, which is delivered to an all-wheel drive system. Despite those impressive numbers, it achieves an incredibly fuel-efficient EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
The 2017 Toyota Prius returns following a full redesign last year, which encompassed a fresh new look that emphasizes its more athletic nature. That means this year’s Prius remains as the most performance-oriented and fuel-efficient. Revised steering and suspension work last year lead to more agile handling, and a 1.8L four-cylinder engine with a pair of electric motors produces 121 hp. In terms of fuel economy, you can look forward to a standard EPA-estimated 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway, or 58 mpg city and 53 mpg highway with the revised tuning of the Prius Two Eco. You’ll have seating for five and plenty of room in back thanks to the hatchback setup and the folding rear seat. This all comes for an MSRP from $24,685.*
The 2016 Toyota Prius c is a subcompact hatchback that confidently satisfies your daily driving needs. It gets its power from a 1.5L four-cylinder engine along with an electric motor and nickel-metal hybrid battery. In total, it makes 99 hp and can achieve an impressive EPA-estimated 53 mpg city and 46 mpg highway. Even with its low price and sophisticated powertrain, the Prius c gets standard features like a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, full power features, and automatic climate control.
Families are likely to enjoy the setup of the 2017 Toyota Prius v. This five-seat wagon comes powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder and two electric motors and a battery pack, which combine to make 134 hp. You’ll have lots of room thanks to 34.3 cubic feet dedicated for cargo and up to 67.3 cubic feet when you need it. Despite its larger size, the Prius v still achieves stellar fuel economy numbers at an EPA-estimated 43 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. Expect to pay from $26,675 MSRP.*
For the first time ever, Toyota introduced a plug-in hybrid version of the Toyota Prius to the mix. Unlike the regular Prius, the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime gives drivers the option to run the vehicle only on the electric powertrain for up to 22 miles. For normal trips around town and to work, you likely won’t use any fuel at all. Once the electric motor runs out, though, the regular engine kicks in and partially recharges the electric system to give you an approximate 600 mile driving range. The electric system can be fully charged to max power in just 2.5 hours. The Toyota Prius Prime is available now.
