After doing a test drive of CT below is my comparison. subjective features the CT200h has -- and the prius Gen III doesn't have: * much better seats, driving position and dash/console layout. Sitting in the CT fits like a glove compared to getting in the prius which feels like driving any random rental car. * Lexus fit and finish -- dash materials esp. are much better than prius * very comfy steering wheel and more responsive steering feel * sportier tuned handling (ind rear suspension and some vibration damping) Tech available on Ct but not available on Prius (nothing really important here): * LED headlights * headlight washers * heated seats * memory seats * dual zone a/c * joystick Nav control * defoggers for outside mirrors * 10 speaker stereo (Prius best is 8) * Enform (like fancier Onstar) * backup camera in mirror (if no nav) * glass break sensor Other things in favor of CT: * 6" shorter --> can fit into more parking spaces * Lexus warranty Available on Prius but not CT: * Lane Keep Assist * Heads Up Display * Plasmacluster ionizer (?!) * bigger cargo area * bigger backseat area * Prius, because it weighs less and is more aerodynamic, the Prius is **faster** and more fuel efficient While it is tough to chose a car that is actually SLOWER than the prius, and lacks a couple cool tech gadgets like HUD and LKA, the seats and the subjective driving feel of the CT might do it for me. Am I missing anything?
