ummm i might be wrong.
but prius is absolutely crap when it comes to power and getting things done quickly.
its a freaking battery car. i mean no disrespect kind sir.
but honda civic 1.8 regardless if its 8th gen or 9th gen is far more powerfull thn prius hand down.
i own a honda city 1.5 aspire prosmatec, bought it last month. i can assure you even 1.5 ltr city can outrun prius in a jiffy regardless if its 1.5 prius or 3rd gen 1.8 prius
apart from that prius is quite old people car. my nana abu owns a prius and so does my elders in the uk and they enjoy it but i absolutely hate it whenever i have to drive my nana abu for his medical check up if i end up with only his car at my disposal. its a very painfully slow car . suits senior citizens and thats about it.
