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

Review

Toyota clearly began with a clean sheet - asking what could they do to minimize emissions but sell to a large market. Once they had gone hybrid they looked at what the presence of a large available source of electricity could mean. Very responsive electric power steering. Electric A/C - no serpentine belt to put a constant drag on the engine. Electric water pump. Electric fan. You get the idea.

Best Features

The fuel consumption display, the handling (very easy to make tight turns), the back-up camera lets me back to one inch from a barrier or yellow line.

Worst Features

Override for the traction control. More rear headroom.
