2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I drove all the Hybrids before deciding on the Prius, more options, comfort and design were superior. Also road noise is far better than the Honda. Seats are very comfortable. I have gone on two long trips already and have loved every minute. I have averaged between 52 and 72 MPG... very satisified. And RED IS the color! I have the option 4 package and it has all I need.


Best Features

My key stays in my purse. Comfortable. Savings at the gas station and averaging 58 MPG. I can lay the back seats down and haul more than most SUVs!


Worst Features

The shiny black in areas of the front. Around radio and cupholders always looks dusty. All else is perfect!

2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Absolutely the most fun to drive car I've owned. I've owned sports cars, SUVs, etc. But this one takes the cake. I'm always eager to take the car out for a spin, run errands, etc. It has a nice ride, is comfortable, roomy, and really a complete all around good vehicle.


Best Features

Cargo/passenger space, steering wheel and voice activated controls, back-up camera, navigation, bluetooth, silent engine, etc.


Worst Features

Incorporate body mouldings for doors and rear bumper guard.

2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

This is easily the best car I've ever owned, I love driving it. It's got plenty of room (I'm 6' 1"), surprising power, and the interior is top notch. I'll never own a conventional drivetrain car again, there aren't any sacrifices because of the hybrid system. Plus, it drives like a car that costs thousands more. Power is seamless due to the high tech transmission.


Best Features

Back up camera, smart key, 500 miles/10 gallons of gas, multifunction display, high quality interior.


Worst Features

I've heard that the next generation Prius will be able to be plugged in for engine free driving for 18 miles, a suggestion that is already being worked on.

2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Well these impressions are based on the first 1500 miles. I bought the least expensive Prius (only with option 2 package). Car is responsive, runs smoothly, drives well in city or highway. Mileage is better than I thought it would be. Tax credit was a major factor in choosing Prius.


Best Features

Gas mileage - I am getting 50+ mpg. for the first 1500 miles.


Worst Features

More comfortable seats
