2010 Toyota Prius III 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I happily moved from a 2001 Rav4. This car offers more pickup, a quieter interior and a generally more pleasant driving experience. The handling is fairly sure-footed, though it turns like a larger, heavier car. The hybrid system is unobtrusive and can be ignored. I don't love the intrusive console/bridge between the front seats-- would have preferred elbow room. The iPod integration is so bad that it's not worth paying more for it--it came free with the NAV, so I don't feel too ripped off.

Best Features

Fuel economy, climate control, cruise control, voice-control/bluetooth/NAV, cute transmission joystick, multi-informational display.

Worst Features

Remove the flying buttress between the front seats. Add lockable glove compartment. Completely redo iPod integration, which is terrible.
