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

"Wonderful to find parking spaces and maneuver in tight spaces. Somewhat difficult to see back."

Anonymous, KS (2011 Toyota Prius)

"It has provided trouble-free transportation during the five years that I have owned it. It is economical to drive, gives good fuel economy. It is the second Prius that I have owned, and have no desire to own any other make of automobile."

MARK D., NM (2011 Toyota Prius)

"This model has a fairly high center of gravity, no visible front corners, and only modest acceleration - all of which add up to only a fair driving experience and a difficult parking experience."

BINYAMIN B., MD (2011 Toyota Prius)

"The Prius has a great ride - very smooth. This is one of my favorite things about the Prius, and is why this is my third in a row."

DANIELLE W., ME (2011 Toyota Prius)

"The option of "Econ" or "Power" makes a great difference in the confidence of the driver when entering expressways. It is a very valuable feature and one I enjoy! The gasoline MPG is fantastic and averages 50 mpg overall for the first 28k miles that I have driven this Prius!"

"The Prius just doesn't have the greatest acceleration and handling. It's just okay."

MICHAEL M., IA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Acceleration and handling is excellent."

HELEN G., SD (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Jokes about acceleration must be made by Nascar drivers. I have found it perfectly suited accelerating from a standstill, matching speeds entering freeways, and overtaking. The CVT is exceptional, and one of my favorite features. Steering, especially on long trips, is excellent. Cruise control accurate, though I wish Toyota would make one that "remembers" where it was last set after a stop."

L K., NC (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Lots of power here in the Rockies (7000'+) and handles well too."

RICHARD P., NM (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Good acceleration, drives smooth"

BRIAN C., AZ (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Having driven performance luxury cars most of my life I expected less from the Prius, but have been really surprised at its pep and power. If it were just a little prettier and a lot quieter I'd never consider a luxury car again."

ELAINE O., GA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"I didn't expect the car to accelerate and handle so well. I really feel very well in control of the vehicle in all respects. I think it handles much better than almost any other car that I have driven."

PATRICIA J., IL (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Seats lack support. Hard to find comfortable driving position"

Anonymous, CA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Too many blind spots to the sides and rear."

Anonymous, MI (2011 Toyota Prius)

"This car has no feedback at all. It's a horrible vehicle on curvy roads. I always pull over to let other vehicles pass when I drive the Prius in the curvy roads. It makes the Honda Civic seem like a sports car..."

YUVRAJ A., CA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"When avoiding an erratic driver or needing power entering a freeway on an on-ramp...push that little PWR button, the electric motor kicks the gas engine in the rear and you FLY. That's fun - particularly seeing the faces on other drivers when I assume the speed limit and they get to pass me, finally."

KEN M., CA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Good acceleration. This car has a special button to give extra power- I don't use it- enough get up abd go w/out it! I like passing BMWs on steep uphill S!"

JULI S., NV (2011 Toyota Prius)

"brake pedal is too small"

V S., TN (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Acceleration is very weak. It gets you there but it takes its time."

STEPHEN S., AZ (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Before purchasing the Prius I was concerned that it might be annoyingly under powered. But to my surprise the acceleration, especially from a stand still, is quite lively...the benefits of high torque at zero rpm with an electric motor. The handling is more than adequate for every day driving. And the ride is very good even over bumpy surfaces."

DAVID M., CA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"In winter conditions (snow), the Prius is quite bad. I believe this is due to not enough weight on the front tires."

PAUL E., KY (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Car was a realistic replacement for Toyota Sequoia at the time, but because the car is SO LOW to ground, I scrape and bang it on everything! next car will have more lift and slightly more space, such as small SUV."

MATTHEW W., VA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Actually my issue is the styling of the rear hatch. It is virtually impossible to clean/keep clean the window area just below the rear hatch; and in looking through the rear view mirror, that area provides very limited visibility.."

JAMES H., IL (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Took awhile to get used to the acceleration in this car. When merging onto an expressway you must floor the gas pedal to get up to speed. Once I got used to this however, no problem."

Anonymous, NY (2011 Toyota Prius)

"While applying the regenerative braking, if you hit a bump in the road, the brake 'releases' and you have to mash the pedal down to get braking power back. I'm guessing this is a protection mechanism for the regenerative brakes, and pushing the pedal down more applies the brake pads. It's very disconcerting the first couple of times you experience it"

"Car accelerates very well, able to get to speed quickly"

Brian C., WA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"The Prius acceleration is leisurely and hard acceleration can be quite noisy. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) allows the engine to run at high revs before the car actually speeds up (we run the car in Eco mode to get better gas mileage). Handling is good with little lean, but not great."

"Great turning radius, perfect for parellel parking or getting out of tight spaces. Acceleration is excellent for merging onto highways."

Brigid H., OH (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Handling is responsive, but sluggish. Acceleration leaves a lot to be desired, like actually accelerating when you push the pedal. There’s a significant waiting period before the car responds. You have to really know the car’s quirks or it could be dangerous."

Anonymous, CA (2011 Toyota Prius)

"I installed a Toyota Racing Development (Toyota-made) antisway bar in the rear; I installed an AutoMeter 0-6000 small tachometer on the dash; & I purchased Michelin Energy A/S tires, all to make it more fun and to make sure I knew what the engine was doing (RPMs). I recommend these additions. I don't care about the acceleration, which is satisfactory: I want good, flat handling, and driver involvement. I wrote to Toyota o tell them they should put a tachometer in every vehicle they make, including hybrids."

Anonymous, IL (2011 Toyota Prius)

"Very poor traction, especially in wet or mud or snow. I got the best traction aftermarket tires I could find using CR advice. Hard acceleration (and it is pretty weak) from a stop regularly spins the wheels, making it hard to enter a highway from a stop. The brakes let go when encountering a bump or pothole, which is scary when you are on a turn."

Isaiah L., NJ (2011 Toyota Prius)

"GOOD: Power Mode provides a much needed faux-turbo response compared to earlier models. Crucial for getting onto highways with short merge lanes. Eco Mode provides the typical Prius driving experience, which feels somewhat like a giant golf cart, though it's absolutely fine once you get used to it. BAD: Braking is sometimes scary, as ABS prevents actual stopping when braking on bumpy or otherwise non-grippy terrain."

"Acceleration is adequate; handling is adequate, but that is because Prius owners accept Prius' less-than-crisp control. My main concern re: this automobile that I actually am very found of and will gladly buy again, is the lack of lower back support in either front seat. This is a flaw in all Prius of the 2010 through 2016 models and the fact that the problem was allowed to persist over a 6-year model run is unacceptable."
