Fuck, there is absolutely nothing here.

Maybe the Fusion, since it's a proper hybrid unlike the Insight which is pretty much just a car with a really big starter motor.

New Prius and Camry I could care less about. The Prius gets more of my ire, since it's pretty much just a re bodying of the last gen, and doesn't move the game forward. Kinda disappointing since the first and second gen cars were game changers.

I voted for the Prius. Lets face it you're buying a hybrid for the great gas mileage, and the Prius does that better than any other car here. It also looks pretty decent in its newest incarnation. The interior looks pretty slick, and it has more innovative technology behind it than any of the others.

+1 as a hybrid, the Prius does it's job the best.

Fusion...it's still a good driver's car with the best fuel economy for a midsizer. The Altima would be a second choice but really does fail on the fuel economy front. Would never be caught dead in a Prius, and though I do kinda like the Insight (as hybrids go), it is full of fail in far too many ways...
