I just passed one year driving my CT200H.
Firstly, I live in the subtropics in Australia, so driving in heavy snow or ice is not a concern.
I wanted fuel efficiency, safety and reliability and this car delivers, and also gives a very comfortable ride.
It is not a standout in appearance but is better than the blocky looking Prius.
It is an exellent car for a single older person, or a couple (and maybe ones with small children), but the back seat cramped.
It delivers everything I wanted and I would recommend it on the fuel savings alone.
A lower entry price.
Another hybrid model between this one and the SUV (for example a wagon or a small SUV) would entice me to trade up when the time comes in order to get more storage space and leg room.
