2001 Toyota Prius

The 2001 Toyota Prius was born into a world of Sports Utility Vehicles and seemed determined from the start to make things "right"...even if this righting of the world could put the owner out more than $20,000.

Intelligently designed for the wants of today's driver, the Prius features a tall cabin, making it easy for passengers to enter and exit. This ironically gives it an SUV-type feel. Of course, once you take to the road, you will realize you're actually sitting in a car, as the upright cabin does not give the commanding view the gas guzzlers tend to.

The 1.5-liter, fuel-injected gas engine produces only 70 horsepower, but rewards drivers with about 52 miles per gallon.
