I have already put down a $100 deposit on an '08 Prius #5, Mag Gray. The only other car that seems to keep jumping at me is the Honda Civic, as you can outfit it with some pretty nice wheels to make it look more sporty than it is. Sticker price between the two is only a few hundred dollars difference. The Honda looks a bit better, IMHO (especially with the 2K wheel upgrade), but the Prius is better equipped and gets considerably better MPG. (The Honda is rated at something like 28/34.) Both have navigation. Prius has SKS and Bluetooth, and the Civic does not. My question to the PCers here is this: does anyone have any real experience with the standard (non-hybrid) Civic EX-L versus the 2008 Prius? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
