Compact car: Honda Civic Hybrid
Price: $22,600 - $22,600
Mileage: 45 mpg Hwy, 40 mpg City

The Honda Civic is usually considered a direct competitor to the Prius. But the CIvic is significantly smaller inside. It also has a different type of hybrid system that makes it a better choice for those who do more highway driving.

The Civic is still a popular and reliable hybrid choice that offers outstanding resale value. After five years, IntelliChoice.com expects it to be worth about 66% of its original cost.
