2008 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We just got our second Prius, an '08. The first one is an '05. We liked the '05 well enough to get a second one. It's a nice car, good space inside, flexible with the different configuration options of the seats, big enough to carry 3 other adults to lunch, plenty of pick up, nice interior, quiet ride. Overall, I'm very pleased (although I've only had it for one day!).
Navi and computer. I love all the technology in this car. And I really like the way it looks. The Touring model adds a bigger spoiler and bigger wheels. Nice smooth ride, plenty of pick up, generous seating, decent sound system, iPod jack! Keyless entry and drive, great mileage, backup camera.
The iPod jack is cumbersome to reach in the center console. Still too many high-gloss surfaces that show tons of fingerprints. Electronic assisted steering feels artificial and takes some getting used to. Couldn't they make a better looking rim without hub caps??
