2011 Toyota Prius Two 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Eco , EV & Pwr...
Having owned a 09 Prius before we purchased the new 11 model I really like the 3 driving modes offered in the current offering. The older Prius offered great MPG and was confortable but you had to live with the girl you brought to the dance...No longer. All 3 driving modes serve a purpose and heres how I use them:
PWR- Sitting at a light and really need that extra umph? PWR mode makes the dash info bar light up and will suprise you (and the car next to you) as you are launched forward with full battery/gas power with very little peddle effort...One of the features I like the MOST about the new Prius.
EV- Parking lots? Low speed situations A+
Eco- Max MPG Period 50+
Big upgrades over the previous generation. Better MPG,Driving Modes,Comfort,Roomy & Dependable.
Whats not to love? $25K for any vehicle is alot but at least this one give back at the pumps.
75-100 MPG in future? If the next prius makes as many strides as this one and is still affordable...I trade up again in a skinny minute.
