Insight, Prius or Civic Hybrid?

I can buy a Honda Civic hybrid for less money than an Insight and it appears to be better finished but you seem to say the Insight drives better. I can afford a pre 2009 1.5 Prius or a 2010 Insight, which is the better car?

The Insight was built to be cheaper in the first place. But the Civic hybrid doesn't drive very well. A Prius, even the old Prius, is better than both.
