2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Incredibly, the Prius was a replacement for a Mitsubishi Evo 8 that I had grown tired of. I have now owned the Prius for almost three years and I couldn't be more satisfied with it.
Economy, reliability, resale, comfort and design (inside and out). Plus the little known bonus of being simply awesome in the snow/ice (better even than my less aggressively shod Audi S4 with Quattro) when equipped with skinny snow tires.
Plug-in capability. Less scratchable interior plastics.
