Electric vehicles get all the attention these days. Lots of folks have decided to cut out gasoline entirely, while hybrids — which include both gasoline engines and electric motors — merely reduce their gas usage. Still, many excellent hybrids remain available, and they’re often available with the same high-tech self-driving features as electric cars.
These features include adaptive cruise control, which maintains a minimum distance from a vehicle in front of you as it slows down and speeds back up; automatic emergency braking, which autonomously hits the brakes to avoid or mitigate the severity of a crash; blind-spot monitoring, which uses radar to detect vehicles next to you; lane-departure warnings, which alert you if you drift over the line; and lane-keeping assistance, which autonomously makes steering corrections to keep you in place. The 10 best hybrids with self-driving features include a mix of high-end luxury models and more affordable fuel-sippers, and they include conventional hybrids along with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) that can recharge using electricity from the grid for additional gas-free driving. Here are our picks.
