The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Without compromising the capabilities—or comfort—of a full-size SUV, the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid makes a very green statement and cuts your fuel bills by up to a third. The 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers the same room and amenities that the nonhybrid Highlander does, only with better fuel economy and the badge of honor that comes with driving something that's trying to be green.
