2012 Toyota Prius C: The Cute One

October 18, 2012


You've heard it before here. Seems the official car of Santa Monica, where Edmunds HQ is located, is the Toyota Prius. And frankly I'm so over that car. I see it EVERYwhere. So I have to admit that it felt a little nice to drive our 2012 Toyota Prius C around town. In most cases it was the only C on the road. I imagined the Prius drivers looking at it with envy. Sort of like how iPhone 3GS owners envy those with the 5. OK, not really.

In any case, superficially speaking, I appreciate its compact size and that crazy, eye-catching color in this sea of Prii. Out of the Prius family, it's definitely the cutest....
