Toyota Prius Overview

The Prius is extremely economical, averaging 44-mpg overall and 55-mpg on the highway in our tests. With light throttle input, it can quietly drive on electric power up to 25-mph. The ride is firm yet steady, and handling is sound and secure though not particularly agile. Road noise is pronounced. The interior is roomy, but fit and finish is just so-so and some controls take time to master. The plug-in version typically delivers around 12-miles on electricity, boosting mileage to the equivalent of 67-mpg. When the electric range is depleted, the car reverts to regular Prius performance, averaging 43-mpg overall. Reliability has been well above average for the regular Prius and the plug-in.
