Prius VS 1st Gen Insight

So... a few questions. Does the 1st Gen Insight still hypermile better than a Prius? I met a guy that lives up quite a high Bluff... he owns a 2010 Prius that is averaging 76 MPG in the Summer months. He does hypermile it, but not ridiculously slow. He took me for a 10 mile ride including the hills and he was around the 76 mpg mark... impressive. I like the aesthetics of the 1st Gen insight better, but if they are really close in MPG's in hypermiling, I'm thinking I may go Prius instead since it has more capacity for passengers and cargo. Anyone have any feedback on the subject?
