That leaves gas mileage (ok, and rear tires). Ok, Prius wins.
RE: Prius

The Prius has way larger cargo space than the M3. You can put down the M3 rear seats sure, but that's just length. The Prius has enough space to fit large items as the hatchback design allows you to have both length and height. It's like having a CUV without extra height.

I'm not nearly as tall so the Prius seats fit me fine.

I've had some weird problems with the M3 that I've never seen in any Japanese car I've owned in the past 10 years so reliability is out the window.

As for maintenance, I keep cars past the warranty period as I exceed the warranty mileage fairly quickly.
