    Question Honda Civic 1.8 (latest shape) vs Toyota Prius 1.8 (latest shape)

    Salam everyone!

    I am going to buy a new car for myself. As you all know that petrol price has gone up and it might become UN-affordable to keep a petrol car. also we can predict that hybrid cars will become very much common here as Toyota is launching Prius and Honda is launching CR-Z Hybrid in the end of this year. also the more common the car is, the more the backup. I am stuck between Honda Civic and Toyota Prius. I am very much impressed with the fuel efficiency of Prius, though i never drove it. but I am curious if it has the same or more acceleration than Honda civic? If yes than I would definitely go for Prius. Also please clear if Honda Civic has good fuel efficiency (obviously not better than Prius)? if the econ button has any advantage?

    Please give comments on both cars (Drive, Comfort, Speed, Acceleration etc)
    Detailed answers will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Think analytically :

    1. The fuel cost which you are going to save in Prius will be spent on costly maintenance. Yes maintenance wise Prius is expensive. Just take a quote of simple things like Air/ Oil filter , engine oil and compare with that of Civic. You will know the difference !

    2. Prius will be a used vehicle. Electrical spares wear out no matter how good the ambient conditions are ; Sadly elecrical gadgets don't heal themselves. They don't do yoga or follow any spiritual technique. Things like transmission oil, Plugs, brake pads, throttle servicing is required which again is quite expensive for Prius as compared to Civic.

    If you get civic , it will be in warranty and you dont have to worry for anything for next 2-3 years.

    3. I own a Civic and it is fuel efficient. It is even more efficient than 1.5 ltr Honda City Prosmatec. See the official ratings. Honda City is rated 15.6kmpl while civic is rated at 16.53 kmpl. I don't know but guys at Honda have made it possible and I experience it daily.

    4. We all care about resale in Pak. Which ome of the two has a better resale ?? I bought 2012 Oriel PT in march for 20.8 lacs and after one year sold it in march, 2013 for new Civic for 21.5 lacs.

    5. Most of the hybrids have high mileages. I can never make peace with spending 2.5 million on 60000 or 80000 kms driven car.

    6. Besides being fuel efficient, Civic drives like a "enthusiastic athlete" when you want it to. You will miss this in a Hybrid.

    Hyrbid is suppose to save your running cost but this formula does not fit for Pak.

    Decide for your self !

    lolz @ the topic....

    what are u smoking these days? these two cars in their entirety are two extreme ends of the world.

    Ok even if we assume for a minute that these two vehicles are comparable, lets see things rationally now....

    1- How much money on fuel will u save on a Prius in a year? lets say, around 25000/- approx 230 liters on fuel savings as 109.4 RS per liter around 20 liters a month (am I being toooo generous?)...

    Even if the cost of cars is roughly the same, its OLD vs NEW, no warranty vs Warranty so clearly 25000/- per year is nothing. please dont give me JDM reliability crap...coz they are worse than pkdm..

    2- Civic is peace of mind for atleast 4 years. hmmm approx 100,000kms.
    What if Prius requires battery replacement around that mileage (100,000 kms) and if u care, please check the battery pack prices for prius. its around 3000-4500$ which is not available in Pakistan so u need to add import bill as well (3000x104 =312000RS).. as a careful estimate, prius batteries last a 150k kms or so without a problem and is under warranty. but thats in US and also since u r buying a no-warranty car, that cost might going to hit u...
    (also u never know if the original prius battery pack is replaced with a counterfeit one since anything is possible in Pakistan or even abroad)

    Will u spend 300,000RS on maintenance of ur car after 150,000 kms? let alone if u want to sell it, no one is stupid enough to buy a hybrid with worn-out batteries...plus u will already buy a used prius with some 10-40k kms on the dial..

    Think and than make a decision....
    Whenever a bird shits on my car, I eat a plate of scrambled eggs on my front porch just to let them know what I'm capable of...

    why i feel any car comparison topic turn into
    JDM >old = Too bad!
    PKDM>New = Better

    we should have separate thread for that war instead bringing into each thread!

    If buyer asking here to help him make his mind not get more confused which he ends up after getting personally biased reviews.

    now cars in question are two different breeds! one hybrid and other being non hybrid civic that too a brand new one!

    Surely if some one is looking for fuel economy then only they will look for Prius used or new thats a different matter! Hybrids are seen in Pakistan as un holy and do not touch syndrome. Its not true in my opinion, Its one of the most advanced car in the world, its a mature technology after over a decade and half in production. Very same reason all lexus range is also available in hybrid. many would mention batteries but 500K is recommended life!

    Civic on the other hand is nicely designed saloon in Pakistan, it will have more driving pleasure and power if compared to prius (its designed for economy and environment in mind)

    Interesting thread, I'll reply in karta since I have first hand experience and am an importer of the Prius.

    Bhaijaan it's a hybrid for heavens sake...?Lol to that.

    Drive one some day and then take that ivtec to atlas asking what went wrong.

    Ever driven a Prius? No

    It smoke the civic like peanuts any day the 1.8 one.

    1.5 also gives a tough fight, as for It making to the list of slowest cars those societies have benchmarks such as Aston martins bentleys and what not.

    Yahan ya corolla ya civic.

    Now coming back to the topic, I blight my first Prius a year ago, today I have three of these.

    All people saying mantainece is expensive not available etc. batteries cost waghera, no apologies but they don't know #^+* about it.

    Suni sunai logon ke bass agay Batai jal.

    Sincere and first hand information:

    It's made by Toyota not Chang Hong ruba nothing happens to the batteries or the car itself that soon.

    The car drives for 900kma roughly in a tank with full Ac and a heavy foot. Hypermiling makes it cross 1000kms too.

    Maintainence is easy and to the point, oil filter air filter oil, shocks are same as corolla, so are a few other things.

    Things to look for, it needs a computerised scan a few months, but all cars these days do.

    Batteries are made to last forever, use google along with brains it'll help for people who are always saying no parts batteries etc etc.

    Drop me a pm whatever part u want and I'll get u; parts are expensive but new civic parts aren't cheap either.

    Acceleration and braking is a class apart, traction and VSC make it very stable.

    If one is okay with the shape of the Prius, civic or altis aren't even competition.

    It isn't even the same price tag in the world and for people saying used JDM Etc, guys a 0 civic's center arm rest squeaks when presses it. Who are we kidding are PKDM cars having any sort of quality?

    Japanese make the highest quality cars for their domestic market, in the end as they say once JDM always JDM.

    Japani gari chalanay walay wapis nahin ata Pakistani pe.

    If u have a good budget try buying a panoramic version it'll be very techy and nice to have. You'd also have the sunroof that way.

    I do have a few cars on port and on the way u can hit me back here if u like since my PM doesn't work.

    But wherever u buy it from, just get a clean genuine car and it shouldn't hurt u another 4-5 years.

    Oil filter same as xli 780Rs
    Air Filter original Toyota 1800
    Copy 600
    Oil same as other cars
    Cabin filter 1800
    Brake pads 7000
    Plugs 1200 for one plug iridium.

    Now please enlighten me if same parts of the civic are cheaper than this? nope.

    Guys do some research first please, Japanese cars only have expensive body parts rest they're all the same.

    For example
    Headlight is between 16-48k depending on the variant
    Bumper 17000 etc.

    Added force of batteries. Iv driven 1.5 n its 0 to 100 was quicker than 1.3 manual new city which I own. Yeah its 1.3 n prius 1.5. Dont forget one is lighter, manual n vtec! Prius bigger heavier n auto was quicker. I own city new shape as a daily driven car but fact is fact.
    Ill buy 1.8 prius whenever my pocket allows. Its slower than many v6 n v8s yeah you are right. But we are talking abt 1.8 litre only.

    please clear your mind if its "hybrid" it never means its slow. 1.5 axio 1.5 allion 1.5 probox n 1.5 prius. Which one is quicker? TRY THEM n let us know but you have to tell the truth thats the requirement.

    all those nerds who are taking abt the batteries providing additional power...get a life.. this whole phenomena u r taking abt that backup batteries giving an extra boost is known as KERS n its F1 baby...research it and u will know...

    as for the Prius importer buddy.... is that the crap u tell ppl to sell ur prius that the batteries are designed to last forever??? hahahaha i feel sorry for everyone who bought 1 from u.... mind and google it urself....

    In the US, prius batteries are warranted to a 8 years/100,000 miles whichever comes first full replacement warranty. beyond that point, u r nabbed. 100,000 miles is equivalent to 160,000kms. and since the crap u r importing already have over 40,000-90,000kms on the dial that leaves a little room for battery life for the new owner plus no warranty....

    I have driven prius more than u think..my relative own one in the US...keeping it as a grocery car.....it is a piece of crap...let alone comparing it to the ivtec 1.8 is waste of time. I can come up with a hell lot of links to prove my point but I believe ignorance has become more of a trend...

    buying one wont hurt u for 4-5 years?? what abt "After" that?? the new buyer will eventually have to pay the price.....

    and by the way, not a single comment to technically prove ur point...sorry buddy

    ************** batteries lasts forever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    first standing ovation for this guy !!

    now please ( with reasons ) how can something with cations and anions and with depleting electrodes can lasts forever ...

    Is it something new ?? cause it kinda defies many physical laws starting with the point that "super conductor" does not exist in this world at least ( under normal conditions )

    PS >> Super conductor conducts with zero resistance and zero leakage current resulting in practically 0% electrical and mechanical loss !
