Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Toyota Prius. The Toyota Prius will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
The Toyota Prius requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Civic, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Prius.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic is much wider than the Toyota Prius, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Prius.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Prius, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Toyota Prius.
