Scion xD Named ‘Best Green Car Value’ by AAA

The Automobile Club of Southern California has released a new guide that helps consumers shop for the most environmentally friendly cars.  Green has been a growing trend in what buyers look for when shopping for cars.  While “Hybrid” has been the buzz-word in the last few years, other non-hybrid model also offer extremely clean emissions and high MPG.  The guide evaluates a wide range of vehicles on a variety of metrics ranging from emissions and fuel economy to handling, ride quality, and crashworthiness.

While AAA named the Toyota Highlander Hybrid the top-scoring green car, the Scion xD was named the ‘Best Green Car Value’, which factors in the cost of the vehicle in addition to the other evaluation metrics.  You can download a PDF of AAA’s report by going here:
