    Default Civic or Prius

    AoA Brother.. i have a few questions to ask..
    We are thinking of upgrading our 2010 Corolla Gli to Either NEW Civic or Toyota Prius
    i want to ask a few things..
    1. What is the difference between IVTEC Prosmatec and VTI Oriel prosmatec
    2. How much would a Prius 2 cost? or a Very good Prius 1
    3. How much would a Automatic civic cost with navigation, Alloy rims etc But NO LEATHER SEATS or SUN ROOF?

    Now which to buy..considering...
    Car won't be driven daily.. Maybe once a week or even less.. and after a few months a long trip (On motorway)
    COMFORT, ease of maintenance , and about Looks (Which i think civic scores a lot than Prius)

    Thankyou for your opinion

    1. What is the difference between IVTEC Prosmatec and VTI Oriel prosmatec.

    iVTEC: Steel rim, NO Sun roof, NO Electrically Retractable door mirrors, NO Cruise Control,
    Oriel: Aluminum alloys, Sun roof, Electrically Retractable door mirrors, Cruise Control, Auto AC, Fog lamps and map lights


    3. How much would a Automatic civic cost with navigation, Alloy rims etc But NO LEATHER SEATS or SUN ROOF?
    Either you can have both Alloy rims and Sun Roof(VTi oriel) or you can have none.(iVTEC)

    iVTEC Prosmatec is for 2,089,000 plus 60,000 for navigation
    VTi Oriel Prosmatec is for 2,319,000 plus 60,000 for navigation

    Now which to buy..considering...
    Car won't be driven daily.. Maybe once a week or even less.. and after a few months a long trip (On motorway)
    COMFORT, ease of maintenance , and about Looks (Which i think civic scores a lot than Prius)
    I would suggest you to buy CIVIC.

    The problem with Prius is that it is hybrid so you have to change the battery once every couple of years and it is expensive process. So my vote is Civic. Or agar bhot chaska hai JDM ka tou axela 2010 20Lac ke kareeb milti hai.

    Prius good for in city drive... civic gives great mileage everywhere either on highway or city...

    Since you've mentioned your running routine, car wouldn't be driven daily and most probably on highways, my vote is for Civic!

    Dear guys.
    Im one among the biggest fan of prius n have civic hybrid uk n 3 prius 2nd gen n 1 3rd gen.
    Prius is far ahead then civic.comfort safety n drive n fuel economy.
    The cars which I have are the top grades means civic hybrid the top range n prius t spirit the top range of uk versions.
    Uk versions got more features then Japanese in terms of safety n options.

    No doubt milage of uk car is more then Japanese but all cars comes with manual books n with there all service history.where as japenese are low milage but less accessories.
    I ve been reading the topic here about prius milage. Prius is hybrid n synergy drive car .which means it runs on battery n on fuel as well it is very efficient. Where as civic is just a hybrid car. Civic a good one cann maximum gives milage 14 km a litre outside city n in city just 10 kmhs where as normal prius gives 25 in city n 22 outside city.
    Guys you can drive prius at 35 kmhs a litre too very easily in city n 30 kmhs outside in very normally. Main thing to maintain the fuel economy depends on prius computer which shows the car currently driving at what figure.
    The one more main reasoning preferring uk made car is the computer in english language which we every one can understand where as japenese car trust me .just to connect ur mobile with car blue tooth takez u ages n rest to know other options u need to attend japense classes.

    Guys my simple 2 years research conclude that u can drive the best of prius with a uk version car rather then japenese.
    I have all the tools including obd2 scanner the blue tooth one which just cost 45 dollars n it tells all problems of prius if it have.
    Cheers guy n enjoy
