I wanted a Hybrid so I could receive the CA Carpool sticker. The Toyota seemed like a slightly updated Tercel. Cheap feel, though lots of gadgets. I would not have bought a Hybrid if the Toyota Prius was my only option. The Honda Hybrid actually felt like a "real" car.
Very nice dash display with RPM and Speedometer readouts separate. Navigation is up to date with new streets and easy to use.
An analog speedometer would have been nice. Gas mileage not as good as sticker states. However, much nicer than Prius in overall quality and feel.
