The Hyundai Ioniq feels almost like a Toyota Prius clone, albeit one with a low price tag and better driving dynamics.
It’s not as spacious, though, and its tech features aren’t as swanky.
The Kia Niro has crossover-like looks that may appeal to many buyers, and its fuel economy ratings almost match the Toyota.
The Honda Insight has sedan-like looks and a comfortable interior, though its engine can drone.
Toyota’s showrooms may offer the most compelling reasons not to buy a Prius, however.
The new Corolla Hybrid is a miserly choice that nearly matches the Prius, while the RAV4 Hybrid is remarkably thrifty given its extra utility and performance.
