Given the breadth of the hybrid segment, it’s perhaps surprising to note the combined gasoline/electric propulsion system has only been around since 1999. In the beginning, there were only two models, and they were quite derisively referred to as “science experiments” by a number of noted auto industry executives who really should have known better. Of course hindsight is 20/20, and today many of those same people are talking their latest and greatest hybrids up like they’re absolutely the best things on the road. With models employing this powertrain solution in practically every category, the most comfortable hybrids tend to fall within the luxury sphere—as this list of the most comfortable hybrids of 2016 will bear out.
