The regular Toyota Prius is the most efficient car you can buy that doesn't have to be plugged into an electrical outlet. It gets an impressive 44 mpg overall in our testing--with plenty of room for five, a big flexible hatchback, a comfortable ride, and very secure handling. If there's a knock on the Prius, it isn't engaging to drive, feels underpowered and is loud when you ask for max power.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"Acceleration is decent, not outstanding, but it's not a sports car. Handling is mushy and feels vague."

Eric P., VT (2013 Toyota Prius)

"Surprise! The Prius is a very capable driver, and very easy to get acquainted with. Sure... what is said about the engine noise at acceleration is true, but it moves respectfully well and has quick response and excellent torque when starting from a stopped position. It might even win many 0 to 15 mph races. Ride and handling feels secure with its low center of gravity."

Jesse S., NC (2013 Toyota Prius)

"Has a power assist button that acts like taking the car out of an overdrive thus giving it a serious amount of acceleration."

Richard C., CO (2013 Toyota Prius)

"Great acceleration & handling. NO complaints."

Darlene M., SC (2013 Toyota Prius)

"It has adequate acceleration and decent handling. It's not a sports car, and I'm okay with that."

Halyn R., MN (2013 Toyota Prius)

"The acceleration is is just adequate . You most really plan for merging on to an interstate highway. This is the one thing I wish Toyota would improve the car handles very well I like driving it a lot."

Anonymous, CA (2013 Toyota Prius)

"The Prius is zippy but is not a standout when it comes to being sporty. The Prius does have the best CVT and engine start/stop I've ever driven. The transition from electric to gas is near seamless. Toyota, in my option, makes some of the best drive-trains in the business."

"For the excellent gas mileage the Prius drives wie respectable acceleration and very reasonable handling!"

Willam J., NC (2013 Toyota Prius)

"The ability to switch between eco and power modes of driving really allows me to conserve fuel while still having good, on demand power for situations requiring aggressive acceleration, like quick mergers into freeway traffic"

John D., VA (2013 Toyota Prius)

"My cruise control. I use it all the time even if the speed limit is 25 or 35. When using it I disengage it if I see ahead of time that I need to come to a stop. I only apply my brakes when it is necessary. As of today I have never had a break job on this Prius. I previously owned another and owned it for 8 years with approximately 116000 and again never had a brake job. Also get better gas MPG by using my cruise."

"Somewhat sluggish acceleration typical of a Prius, but the really good dash readouts provide the driver with the information necessary to balance the current acceleration needs with energy efficiency (the dash display represents, in my mind, an interesting "gamification" of driving).

Anonymous, KS (2013 Toyota Prius)

"The tires had to pe replaced after 22,000 as they are part of the reason for the lower mpg. We were unaware of this when we lesed the car and found it disappointing as we have always gotten 50,000 miles from our tires. We also are unable to disengage the traction control when we want to power out of a minor slippage instance. The power button is misleading. And the controls for the radio and other sources of the sound system seem very unnatural."

"Of course, it does have a bit less acceleration than most cars, but once you're used to it, it's not a big deal. It helps get in the habit of having a good following distance behind the cars (since most people accelerate away from you out of stop lights) so I feel my driving became safer in this vehicle. The in-dash indicator for how much power you're using also helps to train you to get the most MPG out of the car too. I explain it to friends as: people might pass me so they can get to the next"

"too much road noise"

Anonymous, IN (2013 Toyota Prius)

"Being a smaller car, the road noises are more noticeable than in a larger car. I purchased a seat cushion to improve my ride. I make long trips; so, I am seated for long periods. My most recent drive was 16 hours from Oklahoma City to Atlanta."

"great gas millage and for the money the car is of great value"

Jeff H., MN (2013 Toyota Prius)

"The mileage is exceptional. I frequently average 60 mpg or above as long as there is no snow. During the winter, my mileage drops to 45 mpg. I have found that the sticker mpg is low. The car is incredibly reliable. It’s much more reliable than the 2003 Honda Civic that the Prius replaced. It’s the best car I have ever had. I wish it had a manual transmission—I enjoy driving manuals."

"Disappointed that it does not have remote hatchback back door release or similar function; one has to manually open that door.. Hatchback cover that covers the contents stored in the back "trunk" is not easy to maneuver. Hard plastic interior does not reflect the value for the money paid."

"The original purchase price is just the beginning of great value. The mileage is incredible. My wife drives the Prius and she lets me know (frequently) when she averages over 60 mpg on a short trip. When two or more Prius drivers get together, they are almost "insufferable" when they share great mileage stories."

"Prius has been generally dependable, gets great gas mileage, did well in absorbing a rear end collision inflicted by a large SUV, handling is predictable, good for hauling medium sized items with rear seats down, can even haul eight foot 2x4's."

"The car is wonderful, but the cables are lined with a soy-based lining, and if rodents get into the engine they eat it, causing expensive damage to the engine."

"Cost of ownership for those who have to drive a lot of miles is phenomenal. The Prius is not flashy or extravagant but includes all the safety and convenience features to get you from point A to point B safely and comfortably. If you can accept all that the Prius is not, you'll have a fuel efficient car that is versatile enough for most households."

"The gas mileage can not be beat"

DAN M., FL (2013 Toyota Prius)

"The excessive price of buying the plug in can never be recovered through the savings in gasoline. A full charge only takes the car 11 miles and with gas mileage of 42 MPH this amounts to 1/4 gallon or $.60. Hardly worth the $1,000s extra."

DAVID S., PA (2013 Toyota Prius)

"As our second Prius Purchase, I was pleasantly surprised that the cost from dealer had not increased at all from 2007 to 2013. (just over $23,000 for each auto) 2013 had many new safety features and better gas mileage, but did lack 3 door keyless entry of the 2007 model and surprisingly no back up camera, that was standard on the 2007 model. We negotiated the installation of a back up camera to close the sale on the 2013 model, but it was not standard on the base Prius model."

CHRISTIAN F., NY (2013 Toyota Prius)

"GOOD. Friends who owned a Prius always bragged about it. Oldest was a 2004 and I notice they are steadily more numerous on the roads. Some outfit called Consumer Reports says they're very reliable too. My claim of 54 mpg is legitimate also. Since at 86 I am too old to be driving fast and need a 'new' passion, I try to "nurse" more mpg out of each trip. An example was last evening's 18.2 mile round trip to get pizza. We live on a hilltop east of town and the trip to the pizza place is mostly"

Of course manual intervention is still needed when some idiot cuts you off and brakes. The heads up display is great.

SHERIDAN C., CA (2013 Toyota Prius)

"I considered that gasoline would be approx. $4.00/gallon or higher when I bought the Prius. With low gas cost my fuel savings seem like they will be close to the cost of a replacement battery for the Prius, so more like "breaking even" than "coming out ahead.""

VITO L., FL (2013 Toyota Prius)

"Relatively over priced! I wanted a Style 5 plug in. They would not find one for me, at several dealerships , without explanation! I settled for a 4 hybride. The claimed gas mileage , is nowhere near published values. Electric only drive is limited to 1 mile, at 10 miles per hour limit! The radar controlled stopping does not! It slows the car down, but not stops it! Claimed by advertising, and dealerships to be capable of! The lane keeping device dies not keep you in the lane, only beebs too late"
