More Maserati Quattroporte, less Toyota Prius.

Swapalease.com – a service that helps you do what it says – ran a survey on its website asking about dream cars. And while we recently wrote that More Americans Are Liking Hybrid Cars, leasers aren’t…

More than 200 Swapalease.com nationwide members participated in its “What’s Your Dream Car?” survey, which ran from July 15 through August 15. When given a choice in the survey of their favorite hybrid, the majority of respondents declined to choose. Even rising gas prices haven’t spurred additional interest in the Toyota Prius, as average daily searches for the hybrid on Swapalease.com have fallen 16 percent since the beginning of July.

Why no love for hybrids? It’s about appearance. Swapalease quotes Edmunds.com features editor Carroll Lachnit as saying, “Hybrids have tended to be utilitarian-looking vehicles, not sleek and fast-looking.”
