There is a persistent increase in demand for 3-row midsize hybrid SUVs, including both 

conventional and plug-in hybrid models (PHEVs).

These SUVs can be quite costly; therefore, reducing petroleum 

consumption somewhat alleviates the burden of the monthly car payment.

Purchasing a new vehicle can be a difficult enough task in and of itself; 

however, the selection of a particular hybrid model can further complicate the process.
