My preference would be for a car that gets close to 50 mpg real world mileage and big enough to carry 5 adults. A hatchback is preferable but not essential.

  2 responses   A newer Prius or a newer VW Golf TDI?

We have owned both, and like the Prius in our cold Wisconsin winters because we aren't able to use 100% biodiesel during them. Hard to beat the gas mileage, but there is a new biodiesel co-op here and the TDI gets such outstanding mpg, as good as the Prius once...
