2012 Toyota Prius C Long Term Road Test


2012 Toyota Prius C: Just Another Hatch?

October 10, 2012

One of the biggest selling points of the original Toyota Prius was its unique look. It wasn't necessarily a good look, just a different look, one that screamed "I'm a hybrid!" which is exactly what certain people wanted. 

Now that the Prius "family" has expanded, some of that uniqueness has faded, at least that's what I think whenever I look at our Prius C. It's still a little on the funky side, but I think most people would take one look at it and assume it's just another compact hatchback. 

In many ways it is, and that makes it functional, easy to drive and efficient. 

But you might not get as many thumbs-ups from The Fraternal Order of Other Hybrid Drivers.
