Over here in the netherlands there's talk of lowering taxes on low-CO2 emitting cars which suddenly makes hybrids a very interesting option. Unfortunately there's only 2 mid-price hybrids available here, the prius and the civic. There's also some lexus but that's almost twice the price of the prius. Today I took one for a testdrive. Very nice car, well put together, good equipment. Didn't take me as long as I expected to get used to automatic transmission. One thing that really disappoints me is the booth space. Compared to my current Peugeot 307 it's tiny! Does anyone have a clue why they didn't design a wagon version of it? All it would take is raise the back of the car a bit.
