|The Smart is not a hybrid, and its mileage is not that impressive.|
I like Prius's I would have bought one if I had wanted to go 6 thousand more into debt. My next car will definately be a hybrid though.
In the end I bought a brand new fully loaded Toyota Yaris for about 15 G's. It said it got between 36-38 MPG's. However I have calculated it a few times and on the freeway I know I get a little bit more than that. I have calculated 42 mpgs. Oddly enough no one had these cars in my area but all of a sudden they are popping up! They are roomy and fun to drive. Of course I am only 5 foot 2. So everything is roomy in my world.
