Question Replace minivan

Hi
I have a 15 yr old Odyssey minivan (with relatively low mileage of 80K) that I'm looking to replace with something that gives me better fuel economy. Just on a whim I was considering the Prius as an alternative.


I was wondering
a) which variant of the Prius would work for me. Definitely don't need the carrying capacity of the Honda anymore but still would have airport trips with 4-5 largish bags
b)is there like a website that tells me what is the best price that I can expect to pay in my vicinity (I live in NC, US)

Thanks

Nobody but YOU can tell what car would suite YOU.
Do some test drives.

NONE of them will work for your airport trips if there are more than 2 people to go along with the bags.

Thanks for the prompt response especially w.r.t the capacity aspect.

My response might have been a little over-simplified.
With the larger models, and 3 people, you might be able to squeeze your luggage in with half of the rear seat folded down.
With 4 people......no way.

Again, a test might be necessary.

Yeah, fixin' to go look at some cars. Got some bad weather coming up this weekend, so next weekend.

Any thoughts on if there is a website that tells what people paid in my area?
