1. VW Golf TDi is more economical than a Toyota Prius! Diesel and hybrid cars were cheaper to run but don't forget diesel cars initially cost more and replacement batteries for hybrids are hellishly expensive and have a short lifespan. The cheapest was the Honda Civic hybrid at $175.29, beating the Toyota Prius at $200.63. A VW Golf diesel was better than the Prius on the wallet at $187.93. http://carsguide.news.com.au/story/0,20384,21858368-21822,00.html
