2010 Toyota Prius
Hybrids aren't known for blistering performance, but that didn't stop one UK automotive publication from putting two of the most popular fuel misers on the drag strip. In a recent comparison of the Toyota Prius and the Honda Insight, iMotor performed the standing quarter mile in both cars. Needless to say, they were both horrifically slow, but a competition can't have two losers, and the less tortoise-like hybrid was crowned the winner of the performance category.
The two eco-gladiators also faced off in the areas of pollution, public opinion and price. There was a resounding winner that probably won't surprise anyone, but lest we be accused of playing the role of spoiler, we'll leave the details to iMotor. Follow the link for the full article and test video. Prepare to have your hybrid world rocked. OK, that's probably not going to happen, but who says slow racing can't be fun?
