Sedan

The first hybrid to hit the market was the original two-seat Honda Insight. Immediately, critics branded all hybrids as small and impractical. But that was back in 1999. Fast forward to today, and you’ll find a long list of roomy sedans—including hybrids, diesels, and even electric cars (from Tesla, for now) — that comfortably seat five, offer plenty of storage, and all the amenities of gas-guzzling rivals.
