2003 Toyota Prius

The 2003 Toyota Prius did not change at all from the 2002 model year in preparation for a complete redesign for 2004. However, the world situation did, and the fuel-efficient hybrid was more popular than ever.

The roomy cabin allows passengers the luxury of easy entrance and exit, as well as plenty of noggin clearance. The Prius feels much more comfortable than one might expect from such an efficient car. The seats are adequately wide, and the state-of-the-art technology scattered throughout the dash is imminently fun for all to watch.

Mileage is about 52 in the city and 45 on the highway (better in the city because the frequent stops allow the gasoline engine to shut off, conserving fuel).
