2012 Toyota Prius c One 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Just test drove a newly arrived Prius C at Walker Jones Toyota Waycross, GA.
The salesman, Jake Carter, had previously sold me a Honda, and so he and I took the Red Prius C for a fide.
This was a "three" with most of the bells and whistles, including telling you how much you spent on gas for the test drive, $0.45.
Automatic climate control quickly cooled the interior on an 83 degree day.
The nav system and all computer controls initially overwhelm you as you realize reading the owners manual is a must.
Your fuel efficiency, costs, driving stlye is being constantly being evaluated by the computer.
Someone did their homework at Toyata.
50mpg average mpg, I am 6'4" and with the adjustable seat fit perfectly so vision was out center of windshield.
Smooth transition between electric and gas modes,
good A/C, good style, good interior space, spartan interior materials, but good for entry Prius.
Designed for mpg, not power so is not a race car.
Trunk is small, but adequate.
No real negatives for what it is designed to do.
