2002 Toyota Prius

The 2002 Toyota Prius represents the hybrid's second year of existence in the US.  Drivers can zip around the city, getting over 50 miles per gallon. The cabin is very comfortable, with upright seating making for easy entrance and exit. It also feels absolutely state-of-the-art with all of the electronics about.

The ride is quiet and soothing. When the car is stopped, the gasoline engine switches off, letting the electric engine handle the pauses.

New standards in 2002 included a navigation system and CD player, while options included side-impact air bags, daytime running lights, and cruise control.
