If You’re Going to Buy a Used Hybrid, Pick one of These

If you’re looking for a sustainable, fuel-efficient car at a discounted price, a used hybrid vehicle might be the right option for you. Buying a used hybrid vehicle still gives you the opportunity to help reduce carbon emissions without the new hybrid premium price tag. After determining that a used hybrid vehicle is the right choice for your driving needs, consider one of these popularly rated models based on dependability, fuel efficiency, and safety. 

2016 Toyota Prius

The Toyota Prius has a cult following. The Prius won the hearts of many in the early 2000s by changing the game in regards to fuel consumption, modish design, and solid performance. This model gives drivers a sense of identity and practically screams “I am an environmentalist.” The 2016 Toyota Prius is a great model to pick if you want to join this environment-friendly community.

This model received top consumer ratings across various car reports for its agility, comfort level, and of course, excellent fuel efficiency. If you’re looking for exceptional horsepower you might want to keep looking though because this baby has only 95 hp.

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid

The Toyota Camry hybrid is one of the best you can buy. In typical Toyota fashion, the Camry hybrid consistently ranks high for its reliability and high-performance factors. The 2018 model introduced the completely new redesign and has added bonuses like the convenient infotainment system and robust standard safety features. 

2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid

The 2018 Ford Fusion hybrid is a reliable mid-sized sedan that offers a 188-horsepower and is eco-friendly. It’s a satisfying ride with sophisticated handling and a spacious interior that offers comfort to everyone inside. This Ford Fusion also has great safety features and is cost-efficient. The only real drawback here is its basic, standard tech features. 

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid

Efficiency is the name of the game with the 2018 Honda Accord hybrid. It has a 212-horsepower and combined 47 mpg. The car cabin offers hints of luxury with its stylish interior and fabric trimmings. The Accord hybrid also has great tech connectivity features and fine infotainment screen. The standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning which is a deal for this Honda.

2017 Kia Optima Hybrid

Kia really aimed to please with the 2017 Optima hybrid.  It has a good fuel economy rating, it’s spacious, and has a fun and user-friendly infotainment system. The thoughtful placement of the Optima hybrid’s battery also translates to more cargo space. The available technology features are great but it’s not exactly a budget buy when it comes to advanced safety features.

2018 Chevrolet Volt Hybrid

It’s not the most spacious option on the list but the Volt makes up for its lack of extra space with its extensive electric-range capability, exceptional tech offerings, and safety features. The Volt’s all-electric capability is 53 miles which just about doubles that of the Toyota Prius so you may not even have to use the gas engine. The funky exterior design also helps make the Volt stand out in a crowd.
