Hybrids make IntelliChoice "Best Deal" list

The Honda Civic Hybrid, Prius, Escape Hybrid and Highlander Hybrid all made the IntelliChoice "Best Deal of the Month" for September. IntelliChoice officials say hybrid technology is proving its value over the life of a vehicle.

The Civic Hybrid was tops in the Compact Over $16,000 segment while Prius was first in the Midsize Under $21,000 class. Leading the Compact Utility Over $21,000 was Escape Hybrid 2WD and Highlander Hybrid 2WD was crowned in Intermediate Utility Over $29,000.

Officials say that even with higher up-front cost and insurance premiums, the total cost of ownership over five years is lower than each of the hybrid's closest competitors.
