I love this car!
I like driving a smaller car with terrific gas milage and the Prius C gives me that and more. My last car was a 2005 and the safety, comfort and technology have made leaps and bounds in progress since then. I'm getting 50-51 miles/gallon after about 1700 miles of driving. I'm 5'4" so getting into and out of it is no difficulty but might be less comfortable for someone much taller. I drive a lot of country roads and it handles beautifully on them. But I also drive freeway and in the city and am happy with its performance there as well (I have a 100 mile round-trip commute to work). In short, I couldn't be more pleased with my new car. I paid $29790 out the door with a few extras (moonroof, mats, extended warranty & extended maintenance because I put a lot of miles/year on my car).
Prius C3 Gets an A+
With front and rear cameras for safety, Blue tooth, 50+ mpg, Navigation and a price tag of just under $21000 on the road (Costco Auto Buying Service ), this car is a great deal compared to similarly equipt vehicles from other car companies.
Little car big savings
It's a little car but for a small vehicle the ride and the handling are very good. It's a great vehicle for around town.

The 2018 Toyota Prius C is a practical, economical compact hatchback that returns impressive mileage thanks to its hybrid powertrain. It's also one of the least expensive ways to get into a hybrid, without skimping on hybrid tech. The Prius C carries over a lot of what has made its larger sibling, the Toyota Prius, a smash hit, but in a smaller package.

Power numbers might not impress, with just 99 horsepower and 82 lb-ft of torque from its hybrid powertrain, but the Prius C isn't a drag racer. What does impress is the EPA estimated 46 mpg combined (48 city/43 highway). Our long-term Toyota Prius C proved to us that not only does the plucky car match that estimate in the real world, it often exceeds it.

The Prius C comes in four trim levels, aptly named One through Four. For 2018, Toyota ditched steel wheels and now all Prius C trim levels come standard with 15-inch alloy wheels. All Prius C trims also come with Toyota's Safety Sense system, which adds lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic braking and automatic high beams.

Beyond those features the Prius C One offers a back-up camera, power mirrors, climate control, keyless entry and a folding rear bench. A 6.1-inch touchscreen-based infotainment system is also standard on the Prius C One, featuring Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free support and a four-speaker stereo.

Moving up to the Two adds a split-folding rear bench, cruise control, two extra speakers for the stereo, and a center armrest with a storage compartment to the little Toyota. From there, the Prius C Three receives push-button start, navigation and Toyota's Entune App suite, which allows you to use certain apps on your phone in concert with the car's infotainment system.

For 2018, the range-topping Prius C Four gets leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, heated mirrors and a power moonroof.

If you're chasing that hypermiling high, and a compact city runabout fits your needs, the Prius C is worth a look. Make sure to read our full review on Edmunds to find out more, and take advantage of our shopping tools to find the best deal on a new 2018 Toyota Prius C near you.
