The Toyota Highlander Hybrid claimed the top spot overall. Mazor said the Highlander gets about 28 miles per gallon with very low emissions, performs well and has all the amenities drivers want in a modern SUV.

In the “Best Value” category, the 2011 Scion xD came out on top. The Mazda 2, Honda Fit, Chevrolet Cruze Eco and Kia Soul completed the list.

    Greem car story- noticed that the guy said “overall”, meaning he is not saying- a normal trick by “green” people so they cannot be proved wrong on any known factor or knpwn group of factors.
