For the past few years I have been driving a lovely green 2006 Ford Escape. Love it. But, I’m tired of the crappy gas mileage. Don’t get me wrong, its much better than other, larger SUVs and its helped me lug my experiment crap all over the place, but…….it is time for a change, I think.
My front runners are the remaining three cars pictures below: the Honda Insight, Toyota Prius, and Ford Fiesta (all of which come in snappy, bright colors!).
I’ve done a bit of reading on these cars and here is what I have gathered…. The Prius is the most expensive but is best in terms of gas mileage (51/48) and interior space. The Insight is a little less expensive than the Prius but doesn’t quite measure up on most of the categories, including gas mileage (40/43). The Fiesta is the cheapest of the 3 (meaning I might be able to afford some upgrades), and has the worst gas mileage (29/40) although still not bad.
Does anyone have opinions on these cars? My ears are open. 🙂
