TOP 10 best hybrid cars
10 Volvo XC90 II
The perfect appearance of the Volvo XC90 II and the refined interior (in the top version, separate rear seats are possible) are complemented by impeccable safety and an abundance of intelligent driver support services. They are so modern and efficient that in the near future this car will be able to do without a driver at all. In any case, this impression is not yet formed by numerous owners of the new model – the novelty appeared on the market only this fall.
An elite crossover with a turbocharger through an 8-speed automatic transfers all the engine’s efforts to front-wheel drive. The rear axle is fully owned by the electrical installation. Working simultaneously, both engines develop a total power of 407 HP (the hybrid part of the car makes a feasible contribution in the amount of 87 HP). This dynamism allows you to literally feel like a “fish in water”on the roads.
9 Infiniti QX60 I
Spacious and roomy, the Infiniti QX60 crossover thanks to the hybrid installation has become one of the most economical-in urban conditions, the real fuel consumption does not rise above 10.5 liters/100 km. At the same time, the machine demonstrates a high level of reliability. Some owners talk about runs under one hundred thousand km, during which there were no unplanned repairs – all maintenance is reduced to carrying out maintenance work and replacements.
Despite the pretentious exterior, the car is not for racing tracks, its destiny is a calm and measured ride. In this mode, it opens its potential to 100 %, which is confirmed by the owners of these stylish cars. The restyled model is devoid of all the shortcomings found in the early version of the hybrid. A car with a decent level of comfort and proven powertrains is guaranteed to be a reliable assistant for a long time.
8 Nissan Murano III (Z52)
Japanese hybrid car on the attractiveness of its price is the best in our rating, but to surpass all the advantages of the Toyota Prius, this SUV is not yet possible. It is positioned more as a moderate hybrid – electric traction gives more acceleration when starting from a standstill and on trips, providing moderate efficiency of the crossover. In the urban cycle, the Nissan Murano III takes from 6.5 to 7 liters/100 km.
The battery pack is always fully charged and provides reliable start-up in cold weather. Owners especially liked the comfortable Zero Gravity seats that use NASA technologies. Impressive handling, impeccable suspension performance and a high level of noise insulation brought the Nissan Murano III (Z52) to a new level – now it looks “equal” with Infiniti and Lexus.
7 Acura MDX III
In this car, the hybrid is, in fact, the transmission itself. Three electric motors and a 6-cylinder engine produce a total of 321 HP. the Prestigious car has been showing high sales in the United States for 5 years, while in Russia it is treated more restrained than an example.
The high level of comfort of the interior is traditional for this premium car. Given the dimensions of a large family SUV, the hybrid installation perfectly copes with its tasks – fuel consumption at the level of 9 liters/100 km in urban conditions and excellent dynamics are proof of this.
6 Land Rover Range Rover IV
An elite SUV with a hybrid installation is distinguished not only by an emphatically elegant and recognizable design. It can rightfully be considered the most high-tech car that can move in the absence of roads. The maximum reduction of carbon monoxide emissions into the atmosphere and the best power reserve of 48 km against the background of maintaining the driving characteristics typical of ordinary Range Rovers, attracts many fans of green technologies.
In addition to charging from a conventional power grid, the best hybrid SUV has a regenerative braking system that allows you to restore charge while driving, which increases mileage in hybrid mode. The intelligent load distribution system ensures low fuel consumption by shutting down the engine when braking. Electric traction ensures smooth running until the engine starts when accelerating, making this hybrid car the most dynamic.
5 Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid
A recognizable and popular brand could not stand aside from progress, creating the most comfortable hybrid. The car boasts a three-chamber air suspension, diode headlights with a matrix light beam (illuminate the road at a distance of up to 600 meters and do not blind oncoming cars), a ceramic braking system and rich electronic content, including a night vision system and intelligent driver support service.
Measurements showed fuel consumption in the combined cycle at the level of 8.1 liters/100 km. The car can accelerate to 278 km / h and has a power reserve of almost 1000 km. As for the interior, its level fully corresponds to the car brand and can be described in just one word-chic.
4 BMW i8
This hybrid car accelerates to a hundred in just 4.4 seconds and can continue to reach speeds of up to 250 km/h. But the main surprise is its fuel consumption – it is only 2.5 liters/100 km. Considering the cost, talking about fuel economy is somehow not very convenient – there is every reason to consider this work of art a “status” car that can add new features to the image of a successful person.
A sports car is a symbiosis of everything perfect and expensive – interior trim, its intelligent filling, comfortable ventilated seats with the functionality of a massage chair-it simply makes no sense to list the entire list of many features of this unique car. High reliability of power plants and electrical equipment is guaranteed by the manufacturer for 5 years, which is the best indicator of reliability for hybrid vehicles.
3 Mercedes-Benz GLC I (X253)
This is probably one of the most reliable and unpretentious hybrid cars, which is able to provide comfortable operation without repairs and system failures for many years. In any case, there are users for whom the Mercedes-Benz GLC I (X253) has never spoiled the mood during daily operation for more than 4 years-the battery is able to provide a power reserve of almost 40 km at the maximum possible speed in electric mode of no more than 130 km/h. In hybrid mode, the car accelerates to 100 km / h in just 5.7 seconds, and the total fuel consumption does not exceed 2.5-2.7 liters/100 km.
In fairness, it should be noted that this copy in winter copes well with temperatures up to -20 °C, but the owners, in order not to tempt fate, still drove the car into the garage at night. A hybrid car with a careful attitude is able to fully satisfy the owner’s needs, providing not only environmental friendliness, but also a decent level of comfort. The reliability inherent in this brand is also available to users in this car.
2 Lexus NX 300h
The all-wheel-drive hybrid is the most stable vehicle of its type, thanks to the e-FOUR system, which controls the torques along the axles, and easily copes with rough terrain. If necessary, it can move exclusively on electric power, but quite slowly and not for long (this is still the case). In other cases, artificial intelligence independently performs maneuvering of power plants, providing not only excellent handling, but also an enviable economy for similar gasoline models.
Especially noteworthy is the exterior of the car-led three-lens headlights and taillights perfectly complement the modern contours of the car. The salon provides a sufficient level of comfort, corresponding to the level of this brand. Especially pleased with the modern electronic filling.
1 Toyota Prius
Of all the hybrid cars that are sold in our country, the Toyota Prius has the most affordable price. The electric installation made it possible to reduce fuel consumption – in urban mode, a little less than 4 liters of gasoline is enough per 100 km, and on the highway the consumption will be only 3.7 liters.
If necessary, the car can continue driving exclusively on electric power. The presence of modern developments guarantees pleasure in the process of operation. The model has long got rid of various “bugs”, inaccuracies and minor flaws, becoming the most reliable hybrid car.
