2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Excellent energy efficieny and "super
ultra-low emissions car. Pushing 50 mpg
actual, this is a smartly engineered,
high quality vehicle, with excellent
safety features. Well laid-out spacious
interior for a compact vehicle, sits
four adults comfortably, with adequate
trunk space. Safety features ABS, DRL,
front- and side-airbags. Adequate power
and speed (does 85 mph without problems)
with aceptable--but not performace--
handling. Great car for in-town or
road trips. Mileage superiority really
shines in town.

Best Features

Super-ultra-low emissions. Exceptional gas mileage (no need to drill ANWR or occupy Iraq). Very pragmatic and beautifully engineered vehicle. Although high-tech in its use of computers, the basic design is simple and elegant--right down to its cup holders!

Worst Features

Add curtain airbags. Add traction control. Higher center armrest in front (after-market option is good). Cup holders are great. Improve frontal crash protection at the A-pillar, mainly on sliding under a barrier.
