A Comfortable and Nimble Gas Sipper

2012 Toyota Prius c Two 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I spent close to a year looking for the best hatchback to meet my needs.
The Prius C won out due to excellent efficiency and driving almost
like an all-petrol car.
I had driven both the Insight and the Prius Liftback, both were hard to see out of and hard to get moving.
The Prius C moves a little quicker and has much improved outward visibility.
The C has plenty of pep to get on the Interstate and is quick around town.
Room for four adults on short trips, road trips best kept to three adults max.
I have almost forgotten what going to the gas station is like, I average 50 mpg without any special driving techniques.

Best Features

Exterior appearance, seat room, gas mileage, seamless hybrid transitions (engine/battery), nimbleness, bluetooth.

Worst Features

Driver seat angle adjuster, longer telescoping steering wheel, better visors, dome light over rear seats.
