2007 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

The poorly designed seat notwithstanding, I have over 35,000 miles on my Prius in the first year. It has been a delight to drive and a pleasure to fill up compared to my diesel pick up! Great acceleration, computerized everything and excellent handling make this car more fun to drive than you might think. Handles curvy roads with ease and has more than enough acceleration to pass in any conditions.


Best Features

Great screen displays, immediate driving feedback by using the fuel computers to maximize your fuel economy. Rear view camera and FAST heat are bonuses.


Worst Features

Driver's seat is simply horrible to sit in for more than 30 minutes. No lumbar support, poor thigh support and an overall poor quality seat are major disappointments for me. Entry on the fly for addresses on GPS navigation.

2007 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Excellent car, quiet, easy to drive, 1 touch to start (w/ smart key option), lot of usable storage room, nice touch screen, great mpg even on highway, more than enough power to get on the freeway. Body roll is slightly excessive.


Best Features

Smart Key- never need to take the key out of your pocket.


Worst Features

Rear looks too high and narrow and some angles resemble a mini van.

2007 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

It drives okay, handles pretty well. I think it's pretty zippy, when I go to pass I just shift into B. It is very difficult to judge the front because you can't see it & backing up with the camera is deceiving-objects are definitely closer than they appear


Best Features

Backup camera, stereo, nice looking exterior, plenty of storage spots, I can haul a lot, gas mileage is great as long as the temps are above 30 degrees or more


Worst Features

Extremely poor gas mileage when the temps drop below 25 degrees, rear window visibility, nicer interior materials, fix glare on windshield right in my line of sight, sunroof, need adjustable lower lumbar supports, tire pressure,fuel gauge accuracy, brighter steering wheel lights, dump the beeping

2007 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

The car is a very fun car to drive and has a number of very well thought out features. It *is* the car for you if you drive for trips longer than 10 minutes at any one time.


Best Features

The MPG/energy reserve/generated displays. The simplified button (no key ignition). The backup camera. The quiet motor. Extremely roomy interior while having a small/compact body size. The touch screen for most of the controls.


Worst Features

Low performance when traveling under ten minutes. In this sense, I would not call it a milk-run car as it seems to eat gas at a rate comparable to a corolla or much cheaper non-hybrid car. Should have day-time running lights (Corolla CE even has this!) Gas tank is really small.

2007 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

2007 with Option 6 (leather, nav, backup camera). Drive car daily in both city and highway conditions. Have not had a single problem. I average 57 MPG in the summer and 52 in the winter. Usually can drive around 525-550 miles per tank. Surprised by the acceleration, it moves! Love the car, highly recommend it, especially for commuters.


Best Features

Quiet, gas mileage, navigation system, and mileage calculator.


Worst Features

Need to work on the blindspots. I've almost been taken out by semis a couple times, I put fish eye mirrors on the side mirrors for increased visiblility (it helps a lot). It'd be nice if it had a larger gas tank.
