SANTA MONICA, Calif. — April 21, 2009 — 2010 Honda Insight vs. 2010 Toyota Prius Comparison Test.
"The 2010 Toyota Prius is quicker, it stops shorter and, with its smoother ride quality and quieter cabin, it's the one you want to be in when commuting," says Erin Riches, Edmunds' Inside Line Senior Editor.
In the comparison test, the 2010 Honda Insight was praised for its steering and for the responsiveness of its continuously variable transmission (CVT).
"Consumers who cross-shop the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius will find two rather different vehicles," said John O'Dell, Senior Editor of Edmunds' GreenCarAdvisor.com. "And the selection of compelling hybrids in the marketplace will continue to grow over the months and years to come."
