Midsize SUV/Crossover - 2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
Gas mileage (city/highway; combined mpg): 28/28; 28
Efficiency-cost rating: 0.68
The Highlander Hybrid remains the highest-rated SUV of any size, partly because Ford’s Escape no longer comes as a hybrid. The 2013 Highlander Hybrid’s ECR is actually lower (worse) than that of the most affordable non-hybrid Highlander (0.74), but that’s because the hybrid comes only with all-wheel drive. The gas-only Highlander with all-wheel drive costs more and thus has a worse ECR than the hybrid version: 0.58.
