The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

5.8
8.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2010 Smart ForTwo is in its element on crowded city streets, but at speed or almost anywhere else, it can feel uncomfortably toylike. The 2010 Toyota Prius ups the ante in the hybrid world with 51-mpg city fuel economy and a finer style.
