The Toyota Prius Prime is for those consumers tempted to buy a fully electric vehicle, but who aren't willing to contend with the range anxiety that typically goes hand-in-hand with owning an electric car. For anyone who can charge frequently and thus maximize the electric drive, it's a compelling car. Otherwise, using it as a hybrid compromises fuel economy. You also get a $4,500 federal tax incentive, at least for now.

Toyota Prius Prime Road Test

Best Version to Get

The Premium version keeps the price point down while providing supportive faux-leather seats and the essential adjustable power lumbar support. Note that blind-spot warning isn't available on the Plus and Premium trims; it only comes standard on the top Advanced.
