2007 Toyota Prius Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 34 reviews
While most of the Toyota hybrids ascend beyond the typical Toyota buyer's price range, the Prius offers the best fuel efficiency of all for just over $20,000. Toyota and Lexus built two types of hybrid vehicles: some are geared towards performance and others towards efficiency. The Prius is the latter.
For 2007, Toyota has added a Prius Touring model. Aiming to offer a more aggressive appearance and a bit more hybrid diving excitement, Toyota was equipped this car with foglights, a rear spoiler, xenon headlamps, 16 inch alloy wheels, and a special sport-tuned suspension. Two models are offered this year, and both now include side and side-curtain airbags as standard safety features. The base model includes automatic climate control, cruise control, a trip computer, a CD six speaker audio system, steering wheel controls, and 15-inch wheels.
The Prius can be finished with a long list of options, but these add-ons are organized into expensive packages. Both models are eligible for items like a JBL audio system upgrade with an in-dash CD changer, a DVD-based navigation system with voice-activation (includes Bluetooth and rear backup camera), Vehicle Stability Control, and the SmartKey system.
The Prius base and Prius Touring use the same engine and transmission. The foundation is a 1.5 liter DOHC inline four, which generates 76 horsepower and 82 pound-feet of torque on its own. The modest engine is paired with two electric motors. One motor is used for engine startup and to recharge the 201-volt battery. The other provides power to the front wheels. The cumulative total is about 110 horsepower. Hybrid Synergy Drive uses a continuously variable transmission, doing away with ordinary toothed gears for a system of transistors. No shifting is required.
The strongest selling point for this pioneering hybrid is fuel efficiency: 60 mpg in city driving and 51 mpg on the highway. City mileage is higher because the electric motor can handle more of the workload at lower speeds.
