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.

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.
