There are the well-known pros to hybrids, starting with cutting down on trips to the gas station. The miles per gallon these cars get is the first specification that jumps out at most people, and what many customers are looking for when shopping for a hybrid.
For city-dwellers, the fuel economy of hybrids is often better for city driving than for highway driving, flipping the script on traditional gas-only vehicles. And whether you're driving a hybrid to spare the air from pollutants or not, they generally have great resale value.
On the other hand, there are cons, starting with the upfront cost. While you won't spend as much on gasoline while driving a hybrid, they are more expensive off the lot than traditional gas-only vehicles.
Improvements have been made when it comes to power and performance, but many hybrids still can't match gas-only vehicles. And those batteries can end up taking up space that would otherwise be used for seating or storage, so if you're lugging a lot of cargo or kids around, a trip to the grocery store might not yield as big a bounty.
