As with many of Toyota's vehicles, the Prius (from the Latin "to go before") has become a standard-bearer in its class. This four-door hatchback hybrid has been a hit with consumers because of its stellar fuel economy, spacious cabin and reasonable price.

The Prius' space-efficient hatchback body provides a surprisingly roomy backseat and cargo area, making it a plausible replacement for a family sedan or even a compact crossover. In reviews of the Toyota Prius, our editors have cited outstanding mileage, ultralow emissions, hatchback utility and a reasonable price as the car's greatest strengths. Due to its popularity and relatively long sales history, Toyota's original hybrid car is a strong candidate for shoppers interested in a used hybrid vehicle.
