Editor's Overview

The 2017 Toyota Prius C hybrid subcompact may be smaller and less powerful than its larger Prius siblings, but it offers a nice array of standard equipment including Toyota’s Safety Sense-C system. Starting just over $21,000, the Prius C isn’t priced all that far from most non-hybrid subcompacts, none of which can match its 48-mpg city fuel-economy rating.

The most important thing people should know about the Prius is that the gas mileage is very good and makes it worth the cost of buying the car.

The thing I like about the prius the most is the gas mileage because i am buying gas less often and saving a lot of money. It runs very smoothly and the engine is very quiet. The thing i dislike about it is that it did not come with cruise control which I do like using when on the highway.

Pros and cons of the Prius c for a family.

It is reliable, gets great gas mileage and seats 4 comfortably. Trunk space is good for the size of the car. It handles well, it takes a little bit to accelerate when merging onto the freeway. The front passenger seat is a little tight when a rear facing car seat is in the back.

- Kim K

It's bigger inside than it looks :)

I love the size, how it drives and the gas mileage. The basics (cup holder placement, steering wheel positioning, dashboard, etc.) are great as well. If I were to change something, I'd make the gas tank a bit larger to make the infrequent stops even less frequent.
