5 Top Hot Hybird Models!

by Steve Dearborn

Once scoffed at as a impractical vehicles only available to wealthy environmentalists, hybrid cars have become increasingly affordable and increasingly popular among drivers with limited budgets. But while they are now more accessible to the general public, they are no less cool than when they originally emerged on the market. Some of the new hybrid models are arguably more stylish than any of those released in the early 2000s, although, admittedly, the Toyota Prius has remained pretty cool these past several years. Despite being the first gas-electric vehicle to capture the attention of drivers, the Prius remains a top seller to this day.

Clueless about the current hybrid market? You will definitely want to think about snagging one of the following hot cars:

Toyota Prius

As mentioned above, the Toyota Prius has managed to hang on its cool factor, remaining a popular choice among young professionals and recent college grads. Although not as roomy as some competing hybrids, it is a great fit for any sophisticated young person looking for a trendy, yet practical vehicle.

Additional features:

  • 51 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city
  • Push-button start
  • Stolen vehicle locater
  • Dynamic radar cruise control

Lexus GS

The Lexus GS Hybrid recently was revamped, and based on initial reviews, it looks like the 2013 model offers a truly improved experience. First on the list of changes is better fuel efficiency — prior to the release of the 2013 Lexus GS Hybrid, the model had been left in the dust by competing luxury-class hybrids. Although gas mileage has improved by leaps and bounds, Lexus has also been careful not to sacrifice power and handling.

Additional features:

  • 34 mpg on the highway
  • 338 hp for the GS 450h
  • Safety rating of 9.9 out 10 on US News and World Report

Toyota Highlander

Rising gas prices have convinced a number of drivers to give up their SUVs and crossovers. But for Toyota lovers who cannot bear this kind of sacrifice, the Highlander Hybrid serves as an excellent compromise. The ideal transportation for the annual family vacation, the Highlander can seat up to eight passengers. And don't worry about embarrassing your kids — this is not your typical mom van.

Additional features:

  • 28 mpg in the city and on the highway
  • Keyless entry
  • Advanced navigation system
  • Optional rear seat entertainment system

Volkswagen Jetta

A hybrid version of the Jetta? In the past, this was just a dream of dedicated Volkswagen fans. In 2013, it became a reality. This little gem is an amazing choice for anyone looking for a car roughly the size of a Prius but with increased power. After all, what other non-luxury vehicle will give you zero to sixty miles per hour in just over eight seconds, with a combined fuel efficiency of 45 miles per gallon?

Additional Features:

  • Advanced air management design
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Highly refined dual-clutch automatic transmission

Honda CRZ

Can a Honda possibly be referred to as cool? Your average Civic or Odyssey owner, while likely satisfied with his or her vehicle's performance, will still probably answer that question with a definite "no." But the Honda CRZ Sport Hybrid is no ordinary Honda. This sleek vehicle is the ultimate in automotive high-tech, with its advanced navigation system, touch screen audio controls and even an SMS text message function. You'll no longer have to leave the car for your technology fix!
