2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This car has the smallest turn radius of any car
I've ever driven--smaller even then our miata.
Tooling around in electric mode with the
continuously variable transmission is a lot of
fun. Parking it is a dream as well--reverse gear
is all electric and you have such fine control of
the acceleration on the electric, not anything
like the surge from a gas engine.
Continuously variable transmission. High-
mounted display. Tall car view from driver's
Most everything has been fixed in the 2004,
but I'd still like 802.11b and an MP3 player in
