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


My wife and I entered into the hybrid ranks on June 1, after placing our order a couple months earlier. We were the very first customer to drive off Longo's lot with this third generation Prius. We fully understand the compromises one makes when driving a hybrid, with somewhat sluggish acceleration probably topping the list. With that in mind, we based our driving experience against the likes of the Honda Insight or the '09 Prius. In our opinion, Toyota's new version surpasses both, in terms of power, handling, electric/gas transition, features, quietness, and interior comfort. Toyota did it again! It will cost a couple grand more than these other hybrids, but it is well worth it.

Best Features

EV/Eco/Power mode. Spacious interior. Quiet ride. Awesome gas mileage. Decent sound JBL sound system. Nice styling. High quality build.

Worst Features

Beeper in reverse (I think you can get a tech to change this). No moonroof, unless you get the $3,600 solar roof option. Dumb plastic wheel covers.
