When it comes to choosing the best engines, hybrids are getting noticed.
Three hybrids are included on the WardsAuto best engines list for 2017: the Chevy Volt, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and Honda Accord Hybrid. The Volt and Paice are both plug-in hybrids.
This marks the second straight year that the Chevy Volt has earned this recognition. The Volt was also praised for its 53-mile battery only range, and for being a quiet and comfortable car to drive long distances.
HybridCars.com reports that WardsAuto editors evaluated 40 vehicles for the award, evaluating a host of factors including horsepower, fuel economy, and the use of new technology.
