2012 Toyota Prius Four 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We purchased a four with sunroof, and added the 17 inch wheels to it.
Drove one with the 17 inch wheels and it made a wonderful difference in ride/handling.
Mileage so far is 51.9 avg..
The car is truly a tech. marvel. The inside is a little noisy but I think some of that is due to the standard toy size 15 inch tires that come on it.
The sunroof is terrific and well worth the money.
This car does not feel anything like our prior older Prius which felt like a much more base/utilitarian vehicle.
We also have a high end MB and I am finding myself driving this more than it-because it is fun.

Best Features

Comfortable for 6'2" driver and feels like a fun/slightly quirky sports car with the 17 inch wheels. Mileage is awesome. It looks great (with those wheels) in any color. Sunroof is fantastic. Softex (leather like) interior is great. Space in the car is amazing (two people, two large dogs and luggage and room to spare). I like how tight the steering feels-sporty.

Worst Features

Add 17 inch wheels to all of them-makes a huge difference.
