Beats the the Civic hands down
By SteveB on


2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Bought the Prius May 2009 and love it. Had one as a rental car for a week and decided then that my next car was going to be a Prius. Thanks to Toyota's 0% interest, I'm not a liar. We are averaging about 46 mpg with mostly interstate driving and some city. I have averaged as high as mid 50's on the interstate while still doing approx 65 mph. I think my wife just has a heavy foot when she drives. Traded in a 07 Civic and WOW, the Prius beats the Civic in every category, especially comfort and performance. I no longer feel like I am driving a college kid's car. The dealer had aftermarket leather installed on the seats, but gave me a great deal on this car.

Best Features

Hybrid, look, performance and MPGs.

Worst Features

Tinted rear and back side windows.
