It keeps track of how much gas you are spending and that is an amazing feature.

The best part about the Prius c is the gas mileage. My mother only spends about 20 dollars week or so to get to work and back. I like how the Prius drives. It does not have the smoothest ride, but the handling is not bad. Though it is a compact car, it can actually fit 5 people and is much more roomy than expected. However, I am a smaller person so that may be a factor. For taller people it can be quite uncomfortable. It is significantly low to the ground, but that does not bother me as I am only 5ft tall.

Excellent gas mileage due to battery power in ev mode.

My Prius c performance is excellent! It is 4 door with a hatchback, that opens easily and whatever you put in is covered by a privacy panel. It gets excellent gas mileage, runs smooth, and the color of the color being called rainwater, gets several compliments on that vivid ocean blue color. The only complaint would be that the key fob no longer opens the car doors, so I have to use the manual key within the key fob itself. to fix it is quite pricey, so manual key entry for me now. Still love my Prius.

Fuel efficient above everything else.

The car is practical in term of its purpose, which is to be extremely fuel efficient. The cabin space is okay, as long as it is mainly just two people. Anything more, and space begins to get tight for full grown adults. I have saved a significant amount of money from gas because it is so efficient. It is terrible in accelerating because of what little horsepower it is got. Trying to keep up with traffic from a full stop is hard so you have to be extremely smart about your braking.
