DW lobbied hard for a Prius years ago and we bought a used 04 basic model. She really liked it and I finally thought after about five years that maybe she deserved something nicer so I found a 2010 Prius model four coming off lease for a less than outrageous price.

The '04 accelerated a LOT more than I thought it would, but the cloth seats were, I thought, uncomfortable. The '10 is much nicer but accelerates poorly (probably due to all the goodies hanging on the model 4) and still has the legroom problems of the '04. OTOH, it seems to get better mpg.

I know one Prius owner who late went back to a non-hybrid, but it was a unique situation.
