Toyota Prius C Overview
This smaller, less-expensive alternative to the regular Prius feels more like a subcompact than a sophisticated hybrid. It has a harsh ride, noisy engine and cabin, and slow acceleration. The interior looks and feels cheap, the driving position and rear seats are cramped, and there's little cargo space. However, its 37 mpg is the best city fuel economy of any car we've tested, and its 43 mpg overall is just 1 mpg less than the regular Prius. 2015 brings a number of exterior styling updates. Reliability is well above average, but the Prius C scores too low in our testing to be recommended, and it scored a poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
