I have had Prius and now have 2012 CT. Prius is OK if you can get over the god-awful ugly interior and the way the front end wants to wander around the road. How they make that Prius interior so ugly is beyond me. You wear the CT200. Depends on your likes and dislikes. As many small British sports cars ( MGs and Triumphs) as I have had the "wear it" part is no problem for me. You can also approach Prius MPG figures if you are careful with CT. Not paranoid; just careful.
