Is the Prius more comfortable with less NVH? I have never test driven the Prius, and while myself have no problem with my Insight my gf has been driving a Lexus herself. I wonder if a Prius could have matched that level of comfort.Both are pretty unique vehicles. 3rd gen Prius is an ok 50mpg+ capable travel car. Does long highway trips well. I have no complaints. Mechanicals are first rate and everything runs smoothly. Not a perfect car, but it's good.
The Honda is smaller inside and out by a tad. I'm surprised that I can get about the same MPG as the Prius, especially since the Insight sticker said only 44 mpg highway. The motive system in the Honda is slightly less refined, especially at takeoff from a stop. The Honda clutch engagement takes a little practice to get smoothly, but it's fine once it's mastered.
Both have their quirks. I like them just about equally. Wife drives the Prius primarily, and I use the Insight.
Value wise, Honda really missed the boat. The Insight is a full one third less expensive than a comparable Prius. Insight can get Prius MPG. Honda wins the value battle by a lot. Honda marketed the Insight abysmally. Too bad Insight's going away.
Prius won't beat the Lexus. Prius, with the right tires (quiet ones) are fine travel cars. Lexus crams a lot of sound insulation and high tech bushings into their cars to keep things calm in the cabin.Is the Prius more comfortable with less NVH?

Dealers will eventually get over the overpricing as soon as early demand goes away. Happens to a lot of cars. Never buy into the first run of a new update or new model while the car is in short supply. Especially an established popular car.Yeah, they arent doing well on the new Fit either. The ex-l can get 41 mpg, but the local dealer denied it exist and they want 3 grand over msrp for the other models.
