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


I bought a red Prius C Two a week ago, and it's as good as advertised.
I live in a small town, so most of my trips are no more than 4 miles one way.
I'm averaging 57 mpg right now.
I owned a Prius sedan before this, and the Prius C hybrid system seems to warm up faster, which translates to better mileage on shorter trips.
The ride is smooth.
It really is a fun car to drive.
I'm very happy with this car so far.

Update: With warmer weather in the 70s and 80s, I'm averaging 61-62 mpg around town (based on fill-ups, which actually beat the car computer estimate of 59-60!). On road trips, it gets 45-47 mpg at 65 mph on mostly flat terrain. It's actually pretty roomy for a small car, with nice back-seat leg room. The seats are comfortable. Nice sound system. This is a great "getting around" car.
