Toyota Prius (2006): what do you think? A credible option or just a little bit of a gimmick?

A very credible option, but it does depend on where you do your driving. With a Prius of that age, you need to be doing almost all your driving in town to make the most of its powertrain. Long journeys on the motorway are not the Prius’ forte, at least until you get into the current model, so if you’re a townie, then it’s definitely a good choice. Hugely reliable too.
