  • The starting price of most hybrids has decreased significantly, so they’re an affordable option to explore.
  • Most hybrid vehicles offer enhanced safety features and infotainment systems that allow you to use navigation, play music and make calls without taking your hands off the wheel.
  • The fuel economy you should expect from a hybrid sedan is 45 – 50 mpg, with some models offering even greater gas mileage.
  • The starting price of a vehicle shouldn’t be the only thing you consider when shopping because some cars have more standard features and a reduced cost of ownership. 

Whether you’re someone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint or you’re concerned about rising gas prices, hybrid sedans can reduce your emissions and take you farther than ever on a tank of gas. There was once a point where you needed to make sacrifices to own a hybrid. That time has long passed with hybrid options that are loaded with technology at attractive price points.  

Whether your priority is safety, fuel economy or comfort, there are plenty of vehicles to consider. Here are some of the top-rated vehicles in the hybrid sedan segment: 

Toyota Camry Hybrid

At a starting MSRP of $27,380, the Toyota Camry Hybrid is surprisingly affordable. What’s even more impressive is the number of features you get off the bat before looking into optional upgrades.

Depending on how you drive it, you can get up to 53 mpg on the highway and 51 mpg in the city, which is a huge relief amid rising gas prices.
