The Top Hybrid Sedan Models to Buy in the UAE
Hybrid cars have become increasingly popular as motorists try to find more economical options for everyday use and reduce their carbon footprint. Combining the efficiency of an EV with the range and capabilities of the traditional petrol engine, hybrids tick all the right boxes.
Why choose a hybrid sedan?
If you’re looking for a car that will produce zero emissions and keep costs down for the daily commute or school run, you have the choice of a fully EV model or a hybrid. While an EV looks like the greener option, the truth is that the hybrid has the edge for all-round capability. Using regenerative braking, hybrids can rely on electric power alone around town. So that makes them perfect for the school run, commuting, or heading to the grocery store.
Once you get out on the open road, a hybrid sedan reverts to the traditional petrol engine. This gives you the range you need to get from A to B without the dreaded 'range anxiety' setting, which you can get with a fully EV car. A hybrid sedan also gives you all the comfort and refinement you want and a great driver experience.
The best options
At Al-Futtaim Toyota, we are naturally biased towards Toyota when it comes to picking the best hybrid sedans. However, we’ve got a good reason to be, as Toyota has been at the forefront of hybrid development and technology from the outset.
Toyota hybrids deliver all the driving experience you want from a quality sedan, but with the Toyota reputation for reliability and refinement built in too. So which are our top three Toyota hybrid sedans?
Toyota CH-R Hybrid
Compact SUVs are the perfect choice for urban living and weekend adventures. Designed to be nimble in city traffic and capable of longer highway journeys and even the occasional dirt track, compact SUVs are represented in our list of top hybrid cars by the CH-R Hybrid. This sleek and elegant little SUV is packed with features, including a full driver-assist package and outstanding active safety systems. The combination of a 1.8L engine and electric motors comes together in perfect synergy with the GX or VX Hybrid powertrains, giving you 121hp and 145Nm of torque.
The Toyota Corolla is a top-selling sedan in the UAE, renowned for its refined interior and outstanding driver experience. The Corolla achieves emissions rates in line with Euro 4, which means it produces no more than 1.0g/km of carbon monoxide and less than 0.10g/km of THCs. The Corolla is a cleaner, greener motoring experience, helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and keep our city streets healthier and cleaner. Inside, it's everything you want, from a luxury sedan, with a well-designed cabin providing plenty of comfort and legroom for passengers and a host of driver-assist technology.
The Toyota Camry is perhaps one of the UAE’s favourite sedans. You’ll see thousands of them every day in Dubai as most taxi firms use the Camry because of its refinement and total reliability. The Camry Hybrid takes things to the next level, using Toyota's unique VVT-iE powertrain. This combines a powerful petrol engine with electric motors to give the Camry hybrid some serious horsepower and torque while at the same time maintaining outstanding efficiency both around town and on the open road. The Camry is a five-seat sedan, offering plenty of room in the cabin for passengers to stretch out and relax. The driver package includes some of the most up-to-date safety features, such as Brake-Assist and Hill-Start Assist, as well as useful features like tyre pressure warning and vehicle stability control.
