Both the Prius and the Insight specialize in fuel economy, and both perform admirably in that respect. Different hybrid philosophies and Honda's superior suspension tuning are balanced out by the Prius' much higher EPA fuel economy ratings--51/48 mpg for the Prius, 40/43 mpg for the Insight. With sportier driving feel separates the 2010 Honda Insight from its rivals, and fuel economy is stellar. It rates a 9 for performance from TCC's experts.

However, with better fuel economy, better handling, and a smoother ride, there are now even fewer reasons not to look into a 2010 Toyota Prius. TheCarConnection.com's testers give it a 9 as well, putting the hybrid pair in a tie for speed, handling and fuel economy--though not for identical reasons.
