3. Toyota Highlander Hybrid 28/28/28
Toyota‘s Highlander Hybrid hasn’t seen much attention lately, but that’s probably because it’s meeting expectations already. The Highlander Hybrid features Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy drive, which utilizes a 3.5-liter V6 and two electric motors (each one powering an axle) which combines for 280-hp. While the Highlander isn’t fully up-to-date with Toyota’s latest developments in hybrid technology, it still is able to get an impressive 28 mpg across the board in city, highway and combined driving conditions. It’s also the most efficient seven-passenger vehicle on our list. Look for Toyota to revamp the Highlander in the future, and hopefully push the envelope a bit further with the Hybrid model.
