My Mom drives a hybrid Camry and my family drives a Prius. We consider the Camry the "grownup's car" and the Prius is the "fun" car. (We have a young child, and she loves the Prius. It's a hatchback, so we can easily stow whatever we need.) Sometimes it's nice having a hatchback, because you can keep an eye on the kids in the car while stowing the groceries in the back.
