The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - 2013 vs. 2010
By piousprius on


2013 Toyota Prius Two 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Recently upgraded from 2010 to 2013.

It's the same car with a couple small new features. Everything I liked about 2010 model is still here, as is everything I hated.

Overall, Prius is a decent car, but it's only worth the price tag if you will drive it A LOT.

Best Features

GOOD THINGS: • No change to bodystyle (yet) • Outstanding gas economy: 52-55 MPG avg • Good head and leg room for back seats • EV "bubble" shows gas engine status in ECO display mode in 2013 model • Touchscreen for radio and car setup comes standard • Can reprogram auto lock/unlock function in 2013 model • More elegant wheels in 2013 model

Worst Features

BAD THINGS: • Rattles. Lost of rattles. • Choppy gas/electric transition. Driver has no control over it. • No lock on gloveboxes or in the back • Max cargo weight is only 800-900. That includes the driver, btw • Old school dash display • Low ground clearance • Cheap interior • Lack of power in EV mode
