Many people simply need a car to get efficiently and reliably from A to B, with little cost or fuss. For that, it's hard to beat the Toyota Prius, as it meets the basic transportation needs of just about everyone. At 44 mpg overall in our tests, only electric cars were more fuel efficient. Despite the apparent complication of the hybrid system, all of the Prius' technology is well-proven.

What Owners Say

"Great mileage but plenty of pep. Drives like a gocart in it handling b"

Jack M., SC (2010 Toyota Prius)

"The rear visibility is awful. So, yes, we get 47+ MPG. That is great. But, Toyota must solve the problems with visibility and also acceleration from full stop is not good. If we got 47+ mpg and improves to the visibility, acceleration, and slightly more comfortable, then we would be loyal customers. We still might go back to a Prius, but now we would look at EVs like Chevy, Tesla, etc --"

Anonymous, MD (2010 Toyota Prius)

"It drives fairly smooth for a small car, but it handles and accelerates poorly. After driving my Prius for five years, I am not sure that I will purchase another one."

Terry M., NB (2010 Toyota Prius)

"acceleration is ok, handling is surprisingly good"

Robert O., CT (2010 Toyota Prius)

"When we first got the Prius, we treated it very carefully. Now that we've had the Prius for a number of years, we drive it more roughly. Of course, we brake for red lights and stop signs at some distance in order to charge the battery. But we accelerate away from intersections in a fairly aggressive way."

Anonymous, ON (2010 Toyota Prius)

"The Prius handles well on highways and mountain back roads. It has much more power climbing the mountains than we ever expected in a hybrid. It corners well and moves very easily during "city" driving."

"It is remarkably fast, gets great mileage and is capable of carrying a significant amount of "stuff" in the back deck area and especially with the back seats folded down."

Anonymous, AZ (2010 Toyota Prius)

"Once you learn to be smooth, the car is surprisingly fun to drive. Especially in suburban traffic, it becomes fun to try to max out mileage. Teaches you to anticipate and read traffic - actually good for defensive driving as well. While the acceleration is certainly not neck-snapping, it's equal to most family cars from the 80's-90's. We have the Prius level V, on 17-inch tires, and it actually handles pretty well, though the ride is a little firm."

Anonymous, OR (2010 Toyota Prius)

"Oddly, the Prius has a power button that significantly improves acceleration with no observed loss in gas mileage. The acceleration with the power button makes the Prius driving experience OK versus a frustratingly unresponsive experience without the power button. Still, I would put up with boring for the great gas mileage, but I don't have to. Yeh!"

"The Prius does something weird when you hit a bump. You experience a momentary feeling of losing control. It's hard to describe. I believe if you're braking when you hit the bump, it feels like the brakes disengage for a moment. I've never experienced this in any other car."

"difficulty breaking and how it runs in poor weather"

Richard T., NJ (2010 Toyota Prius)

"If I step on the brake on a rough road surface the car loses braking power for a half second until it is restored. This is very disconcerting and could be dangerous. I have brought it to dealer several times but they say it is "normal" and cannot be changed and is due to the change from the regenerative braking system to the normal braking system. Calls to Toyota have not helped. This is unacceptable!"

Richard M., MA (2010 Toyota Prius)

"Learning to drive a Prius takes some practice. Acceleration is modest unless you step down on it, and then your gas mileage suffers."

Mike W., SC (2010 Toyota Prius)

"It is surprising how much acceleration this 4 cylinder car has. There is ample acceleration when traveling at speeds from 30 to 50. The best acceleration occurs when one is traveling on the interstate and suddenly must accelerate to get away from a potential accident. This sudden needed acceleration is impressive. I think its rapid response could prevent an accident in certain situations. It handles very well. The steering is responsive."

Anonymous, KY (2010 Toyota Prius)

"This is a comment not so much about handling but sight lines. When driving the 2010 Prius, line of sight directly behind you is impeded by the hatchback and useless rear wiper. I think the hatch design needs to change so it doesn't cut across the rear window right at eye level. I think there should be a rear wiper but in the 2010 it doesn't clear the snow, just moves and clumps it in the way blocking your sight."

Joyce M., UT (2010 Toyota Prius)

"My level 5 Prius is nimble and responsive. It is fun to drive on mountain roads and cruises nicely on freeways. The faster steering ratio is nice unless I am tired - then it requires extra attention to stay centered in the lane. The low-profile, 17-inch OEM tires and original shocks were very harsh on rough pavement. I changed to Michelin tires - that was a significant upgrade. At 100,000 miles I installed Koni shocks - this was another significant improvement. Now I run the tires 3 PSI below recommended when not carrying a load. That is the last improvement and now the car is relatively comfortable - good enough. The car has a serious lack of driver feedback compared to my prior '97 BMW 535 with five-speed. Steering, throttle, brakes are all much more "subtle". The brakes are non-linear and irregular when coming to a stop. Engine RPM is decoupled from speed so speed control on the highway requires a lot of attention to avoid surprises. I use the active radar cruise control a lot, even in pretty heavy traffic - it is a good feature for this car. I have had one weird experience with the brakes. Coming down a long, steep grade in the Rockies the front brakes started a substantial shimmy that got worse with brake application and lasted for a couple minutes. This has not reoccurred and the dealer was not interested. The brake disks at 100,000 miles are barely worn (~0.001") and the pads are still at about 2/3 original thickness, so it is not a wear issue."

"-Like the surprisingly good acceleration from a standstill, especially combined with very high gas mileage. -Dislike driving in heavy traffic, mainly due to poor visibility in the right rear blind spot."

Jerome B., AR (2010 Toyota Prius)

"My Prius give me the choice of two different acceleration settings. One, the energy saver setting, forces a gradual acceleration. The other accelerates immediately when I push the pedal down. This means I can have the best of both worlds. (Although I almost exclusively use the energy saver setting, even that produces much better/faster acceleration than my previous vehicle.)"

Anonymous, CA (2010 Toyota Prius)

"The windows and the console rattle a bit, the lock/unlock mechanism squeaks when pressed to open, and the parts are mainly cheap plastic which could be better made. The AC and Heat are good. When turning, the wheels sometimes jump, and most important when breaking harder on hills and turns the esc causes the car to jump and skid. In my opinion it is overactive when neither the weather nor speed and control merit its intrusion. It actually causes the car to jump a little."

David H., VT (2010 Toyota Prius)

"I wish there was more lumbar support for the seats. As it is, I have to use a Lumbar support device that came out of Robin McKensie’s research. Not surprisingly, it’s my understanding that there is an option on Toyota vehicles for more lumbar support for those vehicles sold I’m Australia/New Zealand, as this is where Dr McKenzie did his research. On the positive side, the shape of the car works for me as I am tall."

"Seats are uncomfortable for legs on long drives. With knees up they learn against the door on hard plastic surface which is uncomfortable after awhile. Also steering wheel angles (where you fingers would rest, are narrow v shape which is uncomfortable for fingers. You can only have your arms outstretched for so long."

"Great lumbar support in the front seats."

Mary E., MN (2010 Toyota Prius)

"The ride is noisey, expessially on the highway. I find the seats to be less comfortable than the 2008 that we own and the location of the switches for the heated seats is awkwardly located. The heated seats also don't allow for a Lo and Hi setting, like the 2008 does. As a result, you can feel the seats getting very warm and then cooling off in cycles."

"ROAD NOISE"

Gary A., WI (2010 Toyota Prius)

Anonymous, MA (2010 Toyota Prius)

"I no Longer drive long-distances in the Prius so the level of comfort is fine for my local driving. It is a bit noisy especially during a rainstorm but tolerable. I use a seat cushion when driving as I am quite short so the seat comfort is more related to what cushion I use. The adjustment of the back of the seat is useful for when I have issues with my back. This model does not have automatic seat adjustment so that is an issue I would resolve If I bought a new vehicle."

What Owners Say

"A reliable car, economic to drive and maintain."

Mark B., CA (2010 Toyota Prius)

"It was great at the time - 2010, but compared to the 2017, is sluggish and less comfortable. I like being able to get very high MPG, often over 100 mpg because most driving is short trips and on battery. This is where gas-only driving is least efficient."
