Great New Prius V Model — Good family car with a ton of space… We're averaging about 44 mpg… We picked the car up for about 2K under MSRP… I'm 6'1 tall and it's a lot more room than our old Prius… Mileage in town is outstanding.

Pros

Incredible mpg while handling like a sports car.

Cons

I don't get to stop at the gas station to buy donuts every 3 days like I do with my SUV.

My New Blizzard Pearl Prius — Awesome handling, quiet ride, 50+ mpg, stellar looks, doesn't kill your wallet at the pump. Build quality is first rate. Why can't US manufacturers build cars like the imports do? The Prius with the Plus Performance package is an incredible car to drive. It handles like it is on rails yet will get well over 50 mpg. What more could a person say? If you can afford to buy one, do it. It will be in your family for many years to come and pay for itself many times in that period. Today's performance is not about running 105 octane trick gas and getting less than 10 mpg while collecting tickets. It's about spending as little on gas as you can so you are not funding those crazy oil producing countries so much.

Pros

Good handling; great gas mileage; great cargo space; comfortable seats and pretty nice interior.  Solid reliable car.

Cons

Lack of torque. If it has a full electric motor will be perfect.

Great Car That I'll Keep And Replace With A New Prius Again — This is my 2nd Prius (first one was 2006 2nd generation) and I love my previous so when it is time to sell my 2002 Porsche 911, I bought a brand new 2012 Prius. No regrets. Even better than the 2006 version. With more power especially in Power mode. No complaints and will keep it as long as I could.

The King Of Hybrids — MPGs are better than sticker shows, it's a conversation piece at gas stations and Toyota is all around a great company. I recommend the level 5 Prius. What you'll lack in speed, you make up for in luxuries like leather, Xenons, premium sound and bigger rims to help with appearance.

Pros

Everything is awesome on this car.

Cons

Nothing, it is an amazing car to own.

The Prius Everyone Would Want To Own. — Not as quick as a Prius with 15" wheels but ample power to accelerate onto highways. Zero rattles. Stellar appearance. Cost of ownership is very low. The car handles incredible. Excellent and super fun to drive on twisty roads. Not a race car but enough acceleration to have fun yet get around 50 mpg.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

50 mpg! Cool HUD display. Solar roof keeps car cool when not running.

If you are a truck  or SUV person you won't like the small size.

Great Little Car. — Car has every feature that a Mercedes has but uses regular fuel and gets 45 to 50 miles per gallon. I especially like the navigation system, backup camera and HUD display. Great commuter car and fun to drive on the weekends!

Pros

Handles great for the size of the car. I love going to the gas station- but it is rare.

Cons

Front seats are not comfortable - especially on a trip longer than 2 hours. I wish they put another dollar or two in padding

Great Mileage And Fun For The Short Trips. — I would recommend this for a small family. We are empty nesters and this car works for most of our needs. With the back seats down - it holds much more than I ever thought possible. Low repair bills and great mileage.
