2006 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I was concerned about the small size and comfort when I bought my Prius. I was surprised to find it is neither small or uncomfortable. It is listed as mid-sized. My 6'6" 270lb son is comfortable in the back seat. The driver's seat will not move back far enough for his comfort, but he can drive it. We did not change our driving habits to accommodate mileage, but average 49.3 mpg. This has been for the last 8000 mi. I have only one complaint, at freeway speeds there is much air and road noise. I am very pleased with the comfort and performance. I eagerly await the plug-in model. I will get one at my first opportunity.
Styling, comfort, gas mileage, performance, reliability.
Better sound-proofing, a GPS that is more intuitive, plug-in.
