Quick Specs
5.3
The 2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid and Energi plug-in hybrid are comfortable and spacious, but their fuel economy is lower than virtually all hybrid competitors.
7.5
The 2018 Chevrolet Volt is an accomplished and refined extended-range electric car that makes an ideal everyday commuter.
6.2
With a plug-in hybrid joining hybrid and electric versions, the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq normalizes green powertrains: it’s relatively fun to drive, and doesn’t look strange.
5.4
New-car buyers seeking the comforts of a factory warranty can be limited in budget picks. The 2018 Kia Rio does many little things right for not a lot of cash.
6.2
The 2018 Toyota Prius wins our minds with its fuel-efficiency and low running costs. Our hearts are a different story.
