2012 Toyota Prius C Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Prius C: Cargo Area

May 29, 2012


I went to pick up a few things at the market this weekend but as usual came out with many more bags than I intended. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Prius C could handle my cargo without having to lower the rear seats.

With all seats in place the Prius C offers 17.1 cubic feet of cargo space. When you pop the hatch, the protective cover pulls up to allow easy access. With the hatch closed, it lowers to shield packages from the sun and prying eyes.

By comparison the regular Prius and the Plug-In Prius offer 21.6 cu.ft. while the Prius V offers 34.3 cu.ft. The Camry Hybrid only offers 15.4 cu.ft. with the rear seats up.

Does the Prius C number surprise you?
