Pricewatch: Honda Civic 1.4 i-DSI ES IMA v Toyota Prius 1.5 VVTi T3

HYBRID models have been featuring in the news recently, with the Met Police signing up for 117 Honda Civic IMAs and Toyota’s Prius continuing to be added to police and company fleets across the UK.

Both cars use an electric motor to supplement the petrol engine, and both offer unusual looks. They are also quite expensive at the front-end, so which model will be the safest place for your company’s cash if you want one of these green cars on your fleet for three years/60,000 miles?
