Two hybrids chosen by PC Magazine in the Digita Drive Awards

The Honda Civic Hybrid and Toyota Prius were chosen by PC Magazine as two of the top ten most technologically advanced cars on the market.

The Honda Civic Hybrid was described as the best affordable car you can buy today. Noted for its reliability, its technologies make it "exceptionally eco-friendly." Honda's version of a hybrid uses the electric motor to give a boost to it's engine, not as a replacement (unlike the Prius which can run on the electric engine alone at low speeds).

The Toyota Prius was ranked lower than the Honda Civic based on it poorer navigation system, even though its fuel economy is phenomenal.

Ratings in the Digital Drive Awards were based on the toys and tech available (even as options) in the car, rather than the car itself. In other words, the hybrid engine was a plus, but not a deciding factor.
