Helpful Expert Reply:

The best style wiper blade can vary a bit depending on the vehicle it is being used on, but a beam style blade like the Rain-X Latitude # RX5079279-2 is generally considered the best at applying even pressure along the entire length of the blade, which reduces any streaks or smudges when in use. This is because they have interminable pressure points for a tighter connection between the blade and windshield. A hybrid wiper blade uses the conventional, limited pressure points of a frame style blade but it also has a cover/shell to reduce wind lift.

Because of the even pressure they provide and the fewer moving parts that are used, I do recommend going with a beam style wiper blade for your vehicle.
