Which Hybrid Is Right For You?

images-73.jpgHybrid cars are becoming more and more popular.  With high fuel prices and the poor economy, we need to save on costs.  In fact, many people are putting off filling up their tanks to avoid spending money and finding themselves calling for emergency roadside assistance. Global warming and the air quality also make it a good time to take the plunge.  But, which hybrid should you purchase?  Here are some factors to consider.

First of all, determine the size of vehicle that you need.  If you need a lot of cargo room and really want an SUV, there are many hybrids to choose from.  However, you have to realize that even the SUVs that are the most fuel-efficient hybrids aren’t going to be as fuel-efficient as standard gas powered sedans, because of their size, as well as the size of their engines.

Also, you need to consider style.  Some motorists claim that the Toyota Prius is the most ugly thing they have ever seen, while others love it.  And people who are environmentally minded like the style of the Prius because it calls attention to itself being a ‘green’ car.  However, if you like a more conventional car style, you might be happy with the Honda Civic, Toyota Camry, or Ford Escape.

It is time to stop relying on fossil fuels, and hybrid cars are a good way to do that. The type of hybrid you decide on is up to you, so make sure to do your homework and determine which hybrid will suit you the best.  In addition, make sure you find a good road service program that will protect you in case of breakdowns.  After all, you never know when you will find yourself stranded on the side of the road.
