I have been a silent user of Pakwheels since long and this is going to be my first thread as my cousin @Kiki091 (Jahanzaib) insisted me on creating it. He suggested me to make a thread that will compare my CIVIC and PRIUS as many people are confused between them when buying a car in this budget. I being owner of both have the first hand experience of these cars and I will try my best to give an honest review on both the cars. My Prius is 2007 model T4 variant (UK import) and I am the first owner since it landed here in Pakistan and has . My civic is a 2006 model Vti Oriel Prosmatec and is with me for quite some time. So here it goes:
Category Honda Civic Toyota Prius Drive Its drive is good. Smooth and has grip but not as good as Prius Much better drive than Civic, Smoother but a bit less grip Comfort Civic is no doubt comfortable but lacks in leg space, plus seats are hard. Prius on the other hand is much more comfortable, it has a leg space of a Camry. Fuel efficiency 8-11 km/l with mixed driving. 19-23 km/l with mixed driving. Road noise more road noise than Prius Very silent ride, a treat indeed. Looks Civic obviously has much better looks. Prius is just OK. Luggage Capacity The luggage capacity is adequate. It almost has the same capacity as civic. Power Powerful car, great pick up but auto is sluggish at start. Great pickup for a 1500 cc. eats civic up when the battery is fully charged. Transmission Gear shifts are OK CVT makes ride too smooth.
The bottom line is Prius is way better than civic in a lot of aspects, the only drawback is its battery. My recommendation is get a Prius but make sure u have found a clean car. The only plus of Honda is that it has resale plus being conventional petrol so no hassle. But if you are lucky enough to get a clean Prius than go for it eyes closed.
So here is little from my side, sorry if I missed out on anything. I am all open to queries. Meanwhile enjoy the pics..
