2012 Hybrid Cars for Families
2012 Toyota Prius
$1,026 annual fuel cost
For a relatively roomy family sedan, the venerable Prius still leads the pack, with the best fuel economy outside of the electric cars. (In 2012 Toyota offers a plug-in option to mixed reviews.)
Other hybrid cars in the category include the the 42-MPG Honda Insight ($18,350), the 41-MPG Toyota Camry Hybrid ($25,900) and the 39-MPG Ford Fusion Hybrid ($28,700).
