Hands down, the Toyota Prius, but it is entirely too high.

It's hard to qualify what "Best" means. Best means different things to different people, depending upon their emphasis on looks, price, durability, gas mileage, comfort, performance, trunk space, and other factors that people might value.

Just did the Chicago Ford Challenge and was quite impressed with the C-Max Hybrid (they also have a Hybrid/plug-in version called the Energi). I was quite impressed with the mpg results, acceleration, power and mostly the interior room plus the fit & finish. To make things better "MADE IN THE USA". This may be my replacement vehicle....definately one to consider!

The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid looks pretty good. It gets 45-47 mpg. I am thinking that my next hybrid will either be a Lincoln MKZ Hybrid or a Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Arnsaks said "Tesla.... actually fully electric, but still the best. "

How do you know ?
do you own one ?
if you do own one and you like it that's great and you have the rights to "crow" out loud of the joy you have owning a car you like so much .

if you don't own one .....why are you posting hear-say , others thoughts , press releases and corporate propaganda

the op asked what is the best hybird
i would hope the answers would be based on ownership , or at least a friends or co workers ownership

what is your answer based on ?

Does the car have enough power to keep up with expressway traffic when you've got 2-3 passengers?

Its easy to have one's own personal opinion on things. In the opinion of people who actually put down their own money to buy a car, instead of just providing "armchair opinions", it appears to be the Toyota Prius, which while not the first one on the market, has been on the market continuously, longer than the others.

As more manufacturers begin to sell hybrid models, some other very good ones are sure to begin selling in quantity.

Here in Orange County, California, the Prius is extremely popular; you see them everywhere.

I have an 11' Insight base and am very happy with it. Most affordable car I ever owned. 83k on her and problem free. Never been in another hybrid so wouldn't know if it was the BEST hybrid car. :(

The Hyundai Sonata would get my vote if I were to buy a hybrid. I currently own a 2008 Hyundai Sonata.
