Hybrids have become very popular and more and more people are converting to them each day. Though the hybrids name, and sales rates are growing, there is always much controversy over the cost and maintenance on the hybrid vehicles. Aside from the controversy and opinions, even though hybrid vehicles have a slightly higher purchasing and maintenance cost, they are still much more efficient and will be cheaper on the owner throughout the vehicles life expectancy.

The engine will sound the exact same and there will be no noticeable difference for the every day driver and it will be a lot more affordable. The affordable price is a huge reason why the 2014 Corvette will be a top seller.
The 1500 plus pound Nissan comes equipped with a 200 horse power four cylinder engine and the 1000 plus pound Chevy comes packaged with a 160 horse power four cylinder engine. In a quarter mile drag race, the Cavalier would win with a time of 13.8 seconds and the Altima would come following with a time of 14.8 seconds. Although, if they raced around the circuit, the race would be a little closer since the Nissan has better handling. Another plus for both vehicles is that they each have a huge after market. This means there are a lot of parts, which aren’t from the maker of the vehicle that you can buy to enhance your car.
