Best Hybrid Sedans To Buy If You Value Fuel Economy

Buying a used hybrid car is usually the most affordable option for many people, so if you’re looking to save money it only makes sense that you look for something with the best fuel economy possible. Buying a car that is a few years old, like a 2015 model, allows you to avoid the depreciation while still enjoying modern styles and technology. According to Consumer Reports, these are the 2015’s most fuel-efficient hybrid models that you can buy on the used car market.

2015 Lincoln MKZ

It might surprise you to see the Lincoln MKZ on the list, mostly because most people forget that Lincoln made a hybrid in 2015. The MKZ is a luxurious sedan option that has a great fuel economy too. The MKZ gets a reported 23mpg, and you can buy one for less than $20,000.

2015 Lexus ES

The Lexus ES is another forgotten option that proves that you don’t have to buy a Toyota Prius to get a good value for a hybrid. It gets an average of 25mpg, and you’ll be surprised to hear that you can get your hands on one for less than $20,000. Gas mileage aside, it’s also a good option for an affordable luxury car too.

2015 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is another crowd favorite, and it’s a great option if you’re looking for a used first car for your teen driver. The Accord is on the market for a typical top-end price of $17,850 and expects to save a little bit extra with the supposed 29mpg. Honda’s aren’t just inexpensive to buy, they are also inexpensive to maintain and repair, and they are more reliable than some popular European cars.

Buying a used hybrid doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice good gas mileage and a nice drive, and all of these cars are still new enough to look moderns and have a lot of the safety and tech features you’d expect from a car today.

All of these cars also have good reliability ratings and receive praise from current or previous owners, making them not just good options for fuel-efficient hybrids, but also good used cars all around.
