2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We only have 500 miles on the car but could not be more pleased. Most driving has been in snow and cold and it performs as well as any other front wheel drive. This car is easier to get in and out of and has more headroom that the Chevy Impala I traded. Mileage around town is only about 35 mph to this point but it is small town, stop and go and temperatures have been near or below zero. Expect improvement when it is broken in and temperatures rise.
Smart key system for starting and unlocking. Interior room and comfort.
Heater has a hard time warming the car when it is really cold outside. Electric driver's seat would also be nice.
