2010 Toyota Prius

Prius vs. Insight Equipment

When it comes to features, Toyota does a better job of bundling standard features and high-tech options into the 2010 Prius, while Honda puts together packages that undercut its superior pricing.

With the 2010 Insight, Honda forces buyers to spend a lot more for, say, the top 2010 Insight EX in order to then opt for features, like Bluetooth, that are standard on other tech-savvy vehicles. TCC's editors rate the features philosophy--rather than the features themselves--at 6 out of 10.

Meanwhile, with the 2010 Prius, Toyota sets out even the base car with a fairly lengthy list of standard gear. The high-tech 2010 Toyota Prius offers something for everyone--stability control and Bluetooth are standard, as is an MP3 player input--and adds to its already impeccable green credentials with a new solar-panel option. It scores a perfect 10 from's editors.
