2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I believe this car has defined a new category of cars I like to call "Luxury Economy". It really shines around town in stop and go traffic but also does surprisingly well on long road trips. Center gauge placement keeps your eyes closer to the road and you can forget having to duck your head around to see that one gauge that is always obscured by the steering wheel. Very smooth and comfortable ride. Don't let its exterior size fool you. It has lots of headroom even for someone 6 ft tall.
Center gauge placement and neat computer screen with mileage data.
More accurate gas gauge. More torque available for acceleration.
