The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - 2013 vs. 2010
By piousprius on
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.
No change to bodystyle (yet)
Outstanding gas economy: 52-55 MPG avg
Good head and leg room for back seats
EV "bubble" shows gas engine status in ECO display mode in 2013 model
Touchscreen for radio and car setup comes standard
Can reprogram auto lock/unlock function in 2013 model
More elegant wheels in 2013 model
Rattles. Lost of rattles.
Choppy gas/electric transition. Driver has no control over it.
No lock on gloveboxes or in the back
Max cargo weight is only 800-900. That includes the driver, btw
Old school dash display
Low ground clearance
Lack of power in EV mode
