2009 Toyota Prius Standard 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


2 months later... it's taken that long to get used to the driver's seat and call it comfortable. It is particularly spirited off-the-line until 40 mpg (the electric motor's torque) 40-60 is a little dicey. Once on highway, this car can get out of traffic quickly. Mileage in mixed driving is around 42 mpg. I no longer worry about the gas bladder. I go plenty of miles before fill-up for very little money!

Best Features

Interior layout and space, HID headlights, mileage and ride (good crosswind resistance)

Worst Features

little more power (2010 has it); skid control too sensitive, better color choices
