Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Toyota’s enviro-friendly hybrid system powers this SUV with a V6 engine and a high-speed electric motor, with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder compact sedan. Works as a front-wheel drive vehicle under typical road conditions to max out fuel efficiency; automatically switches to 4WD when you need additional traction. Ranked 2nd in class for fuel economy. 

Coolest feature: “Economy Drive” indicator displays the ideal power zone; staying in this zone diminishes typical speed fluctuations that reduce fuel economy.

Annual fuel cost: $2,289
Mileage (litres/100 km): 12.6 city/8.7 highway
