Why The American Addiction To Performance? — Part of the problem of these kind of reviews is the value placed on performance and even appearance. The performance is terrific for what the car is-- namely a gas saver. Same for its appearance. The design is for it to be aerodynamic-- hence why Prius do not offer sunroofs.

Pros: 44 mpg even when driving average speeds of 70 mph. Fold down back seats. Plenty of space. A loyal customer base.

Cons: No power seats or lumbar support. No telescoping steering wheel.

42 Mpg Or Better Every Day And So Quiet You Forget It's Running — I hated this car when I first got it. It takes no prize the beauty department, and the seats are not as comfortable as my old Infiniti. But then about 2 weeks into driving it, I suddenly realized that I love it. It's quiet as a mouse, has all kinds of cool gadgets, and of course there's the mpg factor. I'm totally sold on the hybrid concept. Get rid of your gas guzzling SUV and find yourself a Prius.

Pros: MPG, super quiet, very roomy, good dashboard design

Cons: seats could be more comfortable, cruise control is in an awkward place

Cute, Compact, Not The Safest — WONDERFUL first car, easy to drive, easy handling,AMAZING mileage, compact, quiet. but TINY, as in, screwed in accidents. Good mileage partially due to light build, which is great- unless your crushed in an accident. Decent airbag system, but very fragile exterior...i.e. you'd be eaten by an larger car.

Pros: Mileage, size, interior, option packages, handling, quiest

Cons: durability (exterior strength)

The Best Car Yet — This is the ultimate car. Only 0,5L consumtion for 10 km. Battery and gasoline engine combined. I has just everything a car should have. It is solid, runs perfect. Not one problem during 90000 km says it all.

Pros: Everything about the car

Cons: Cant find any.

Terrible Almost Car — friend of mine was looking at cars and I test drove this for him (he doesn't know much about cars) 1st thing i noticed was an extreme lack of power. I have seriously driven lawnmowers with more power than this thing. Long story short THIS CAR COULD NOT GET UP TO HIGHWAY SPEEDS USING THE LONGEST ON RAMP IN YORK COUNTY (Emigsville I-83 North) also actucal MPG was far below advertised. Interior also seemed cheap and car looked and felt like it wouldnt last 100k miles.

Pros: Good MPG (VW Polo TDI is better tho)

Cons: everything else

Green Machine. — (This was my car before I had a Ford Focus, we got a two year lease on this) Oooo! The darling of Hollywood, and its not a shabby car. I got the package w/JBL sound and Bluetooth, and I have to say, I miss the car. Bluetooth worked like a charm,but the sound system sucked. The backup camera was a real plus, and saved my butt from rising insurance fees by making sure that I could see that parked car. On that note, it is hard to see out of the back window. The car had trouble going up hills, even if I gunned the engine. But yes, this is a non performance car. Gas mileage was stellar, I got somewhere around 50mpg(I did have a switch that switched the car to electric mode, and that helped). The car was high quality, everything was nice and the car looks nice too. I miss my Prius dearly.

Pros: I want my MPGs!
Display geek heaven.
Nice looking.
Good interior.
Cubbyhole in the trunk good for putting misc stuff.

Cons: Small.
JBL system sucks hard.
Bundles= bad.
Slow acceleration.

Overrated Hybrid That Doesn't Deliver — Why on God's green earth would anyone pay $30,000 for a piece of junk car that gets 55 mpg. I did not fit in it (6'2") and the drive was nothing special. There is no excuse why this car does not also plug into the wall as well as recharge from the engine and brakes. That would actually make sense and people who made short commutes would pay for no gas at all. Personally I am waiting for the Chevy Volt.

Pros: I actually like the design, its good that hybrids are gaining acceptance

Cons: Everything, its also like a computer where the newer models will probably cost less and do more than the older models. It needs to plug in as well.

A Great Hybrid With Lots Of Bells And Whistles — This is a great car for all around city commuting. It handles well, has a reasonable ride, and of course the gas millage is good. The build quality has been up to the standards of Toyota i.e., fantastic. With 3000 miles on the car I have had zero issues. The acceleration is slow which is to be expected. It does feel a little tippy when aggressively turning corners, but a Porsche it is not. The interior noise is reasonable and it is easy enough to carry on a conversation. Highway driving is good, but leave plenty of room to pass. There is very little get up and go.

This Is A Great Car — My only knock against it is that like most cars and nearly all Toyotas the MPG on the window are significantly better than what you actually get. We have been getting 44-48 MPG in good weather, no-aggressive mixed driving. None-the-less, that is still pretty good. The car is beautiful, inside and out, but especially inside where it is roomy and sunny. The car even does well in the ice and snow as we found out yesterday. I thought the low resistence tires would be a problem, but the traction control was up to the task. Fuel economy aside, I don't think there is a better car in the $25k price range.
