Well these are two different autos. This is like comparing apples to oranges, One is a "fuel-miser eco car" and the other is a "entry level sport-cute". My bro (he works at a very large Toyota dealer) says the Prius is a car that "you get what you pay for" yes it is good on gas. That is all he said about it. The Vibe is a GM/Toyota venture (the Vibe/Matrix are the same car). The funny is that the Vibe (early model) is a problem-matic car, so much so that the Pontiac dealers in the area say "GM's most problem-matic car is a Toyota". I have driven both of the cars you have mentioned and they are two very different cars. To me the Vibe was a nice little SUV type car, how ever I did not like the AWD model, The Prius is a great "mileage" car, but the ride is not that smooth and the car feels "cheap", Again these are my own thoughts and views. But for what others think the web site www.carsurvey.org is a good start. There is also www.edmunds.com . But to make a short answer of your question, again It is hard to compare two very different cars. Sorry I couldn't be more help, best of luck.
