2013 Toyota Prius Two 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Recently upgraded from 2010 to 2013.
It's the same car with a couple small new features. Everything I liked about 2010 model is still here, as is everything I hated.
Overall, Prius is a decent car, but it's only worth the price tag if you will drive it A LOT.
Â No change to bodystyle (yet)
Â Outstanding gas economy: 52-55 MPG avg
Â Good head and leg room for back seats
Â EV "bubble" shows gas engine status in ECO display mode in 2013 model
Â Touchscreen for radio and car setup comes standard
Â Can reprogram auto lock/unlock function in 2013 model
Â More elegant wheels in 2013 model
Â Rattles. Lost of rattles.
Â Choppy gas/electric transition. Driver has no control over it.
Â No lock on gloveboxes or in the back
Â Max cargo weight is only 800-900. That includes the driver, btw
Â Old school dash display
Â Low ground clearance
Â Cheap interior
Â Lack of power in EV mode
