2005 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We did a lot of research before deciding on the Prius. Now we never look back. We steadily average 46 MPG. We are not disappointed that it doesn't get the 60 mpg as rated since we know the old rating system is inaccurate, but still, 46 mpg is pretty damn awesome! Great, smooth ride. Very roomy interior and still room for cargo. We got package 6 with the nav system which is great. Driving the Prius has become a game to get best mileage and has now taught me how to get better mileage in my Expedition. I'm now just waiting to replace the Expedition with a big SUV hybrid such as Yukon or Escalade. We plan on getting the plug in Prius in 2009.
Fuel economy. Smooth ride. Nav system. Bluetooth.
Needs better quality interior parts such as dash panels, etc. More durable and stylish.
