Prius vs. Insight Utility

How comfortable are passengers in the Prius and in the Insight? And how well do their interiors carry cargo, while maintaining an impression of quality?

For both vehicles, there are important compromises to note when shopping. With the 2010 Insight, seating is good in front, but limited rear headroom hinders overall comfort and usefulness. The rear storage area is notably shallow for cars of this kind, a result of the batteries used to assist the gas engine. It ranks a 7 out of 10 in the eyes of TheCarConnection.com's writers.

With the 2010 Toyota Prius it's a slightly different story. There's more room, but the interior finish and fit still aren't up to the quality levels found on Toyota's Lexus brand. The newest generation of Prius is certainly a step in the right direction, though, and adults will ride comfortably even in back. TCC's editors score its comfort and utility at 7 out of 10. Another tie--and depending on your needs for cargo and people, possibly a clear tiebreaker.
