Have you had a chance to test drive the Prius? I will full admit that I haven't sampled the all new 2016 model yet, but I have driven the 3rd gen car. As capable a commuter and automotive appliance as it may be, it was also one of the most soul-sucking driving experience I have ever had. The 2016 model is supposed to be a lot more dynamic, and offers a bigger "fun" factor. But as long as the car reminds a hybrid where top MPG rating is their #1 goal, I can't imagine how boring it is to drive.
The 10th gen Civic is certainly no sports car, but at least in the 2.0L guise, it still has some of that old school Honda feel to it. It is the way more enjoyable car to drive.
