Vehicle2013 Toyota Prius Four 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewWhen the salesman first showed me the Prius Four with solar and moon roof, and all sorts of gadgetry, I was overwhelmed by all the fantastic features coupled with the great mpg that the Prius is renowned for and, plus its reliability, which it has proven to be a reliable car.
But, and this is a big but....they have failed to address driving ergonomics.
While this model four has power seats with lumbar support, I figured out about two months and 3000 miles later on the car that the driving position of the driver is quite awkward and this could not be addressed by changing my seat position.
If you are planning to buy a Prius, I suggest you carefully observe your seating and steering first.
Best Featuresmpg, Heads up Display, Moon roof, navigation, and many more.
Worst FeaturesSteering wheel is off center, they need to position the steering and the driver in line with the line of driving direction.

It's a seriously budget interior. Even a new Corolla S seats are much better for thousands less than top trim Prius which climbs over $30k price. The Prius steering column is not inline front to back with the dr. seat, but same is true with new Corolla (is it a Toyota habit?) Prius is a well behaved appliance with great fuel economy, good interior space, versatility and reliability, but road noise, lack of solid feel on freeway and overall snoozy drive experience bite (except the hypermilers seem to enjoy trying for the highest MPGs whoopdeedoo)Report it
