Arnie's Next Car

Vehicle
2004 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
First impressions of a 2004 (BG pack): Lovely interior with great space and stylish grey pseudo-suede fabric. Almost excessive rear leg room. Good visibility, even through hatchback. Nav system is refined, with split- screen option. Bluetooth works well (now I need a new phone and plan). Verbal command is good at generating unintended humor, but most key controls are on to the wheel. Reasonable pickup by modest Saab 9000 standards, firm suspension, solid handling, tight turning radius, good brakes. Quiet at highway speeds. Soft hiccup when the 1.5 liter engine engages. Sound system is fine-wonderful and easy to control from the wheel.
Favorite Features
Extremely sophisticated systems and unprecedented mileage in a stylish and, efficient body style. An instant classic. Any level of trim has class, but get BG if you enjoy gizmos. Obviously designed and built by fanatics. Will send shivers through Detroit and Stuttgart.
Suggested Improvements
Brighter night lighting on steering wheel controls. Needs light on rear hatch. 2 to 3 inches more travel on front seat and power option. Better English editing of manuals. Online advice for Bluetooth. Longer battery life when not driven for more than 2 weeks (external plug?).
