The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda Insight falls behind other hybrids in gas mileage, and has less space than other subcompacts. The 2013 Toyota Prius is a spacious, practical mid-size hatchback that will hold five people and their gear, while remaining the highest-mileage car sold without a plug.
