Default 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid is no match for aging Toyota Prius

2012 Honda Civic vs Toyota Prius

The Prius seems to be the better buy in the end being a bit cheaper and getting better MPG than the 2012 Civic. But how about when you factor in other things about both cars including MPG/Fuel Economy/gas mileage?

Quote:
Though it's miles-per-gallon-rating rings in at 44/44/44 (that's city/highway/combined), the all-new 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid is no match for the third-generation, 51/48/50-mpg-rated Toyota Prius that debuted as a 2010 model year vehicle. Sure, the 2012 Civic Hybrid is more fuel-efficient than its predecessor, but it doesn't trump the Prius and that's a shame considering that Honda's hybrid now packs a sophisticated lithium-ion battery pack and a reworked electric motor that's more powerful than the old unit.

So far, sales of the 2012 Civic Hybrid have been rather sluggish (Honda reports that sales hit 389 through the end of May). That's due, in part, to the vehicle's limited availability because of quake-related supply issues. However, with a sticker price that starts at $24,800, the 2012 Civic Hybrid is $1,920 more than a base Prius, which begs the question: can Honda's costlier hybrid – one that's not even as fuel efficient as the Toyota Prius – actually compete?

I dont see a lot of honda hybrid's, i see some hybrid civics once in a while. but i always see a Prius. Honda just brought out the Insight and it will help Honda get back in the hybrid game. Toyota will always have the upper hand in the hybrid car market. The Prius is the best hybrid and always getting better.
