2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
The Bottom Line: $38,140
Fuel Economy: 28 city/28 highway
Redesigned for 2011, the new Highlander Hybrid offers more power (280 horsepower vs. 270 in the outgoing model) and four-wheel-drive on all versions. Those changes don't hurt fuel economy; in fact, the new version bests the previous version by a couple mpg. The Highlander Hybrid isn't a cheap choice, but it offers SUV utility with compact fuel economy.
