It's been quite a few years now since the Prius first started showing up on Pakistani roads.
It has gained in popularity and is becoming quite common.
My question is, is it worth it?
The reason I ask is because I'm looking to buy a car and the fuel efficiency really is enticing.
Not a fan of the Prius (no offense to any sensitive Prius owners :P) but my financial position is such that I am considering the 2007-9 model.
I have talked to Prius owners here and they have been singing praises about it. However, I'm skeptical.
So I put it to you. What would you buy if you had the choice. I'm talking about the 12-14 lac bracket and a sedan body type.
So far I've had the City and Corolla suggested to me (2008-2011 models).
Would you go for a Prius over those two cars because of the fuel efficiency? What about the maintenance costs? The resale? The battery? How long before it needs a change? How much does it cost to change it? Are there any other hybrids that might be a better option?
Thanks in advance.
