Best Luxury Hybrid Cars of 2023 and 2024

Edmunds' experts test luxury hybrid contenders on both our test track and a 115-mile real-world test loop of city streets, freeways and winding canyons. In between, we take them home and live with them as our daily drivers, typically for two full weeks. The data we gather results in our luxury hybrid ratings. They’re based on 30-plus scores that cover performance, comfort, interior, technology, utility and value. How we rank

Luxury hybrids

Luxury hybrids offer impressive fuel economy, of course, but healthy power from their electric motors can also make them quicker than their gas-powered counterparts. Expect all the luxury trappings, along with better mileage and maybe even more oomph.
