Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid 2012

If you are an eco conscious type of person, or just the kind of person who wants to save money on gas (which is everyone does) then if and when you are next in the market for a new car then opting for a hybrid car is certainly something you should consider.A hybrid car may sound very hi tech but it is not really all that different from a car with a conventional engine. In the case of a hybrid vehicle the car is powered by a combination of fuel sources that are switched as an when necessary but the care itself (or its onboard computer anyway.)

As hybrid cars become a more popular concept more and more of them are hitting the roads. But which of these models would be the best choice for you? Here is a look at some of the top reasonably priced hybrid cars available right now:

Honda Civic Hybrid
The Honda Civic has been one of the most popular mid size sedans available in the US for sometime now and the Honda Civic Hybrid is not that different to it's gassed up siblings, in terms of both its appearance and its performance. It can get an impressive 44 mpg and is not ridiculously expensive as it is priced at a reasonable $24,000.

Honda CRZ Hybrid
If your taste in automobiles runs a little on the sportier side then the $20,000 Honda CRZ Hybrid may be just the right eco friendly but still stylish and zippy choice for you. Able to get around 37 miles to the gallon those who love the car feels that what it does lack in horsepower (it is hard to call a car with a 4 liter engine a true sports car) it makes up for in superb handling and quirky style.

Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid
A hybrid Porsche? To some the very notion sounds like blasphemy! But to others it is a way to go green (admittedly not a very cheap way to go green at $69,000) without having to sacrifice their dreams of owning a supercar. Even running on electricity only, which according to Porsche this car can do for a while, it can reach speeds of around 86 mph and its ability to get around 20 miles to the gallon is a big improvement over a standard Porsche which can squeeze about six!
