Compact yet roomy car with convenient hatchback and excellent fuel economy.
My car averages about 38 or so mpg in city. I can usually get up to 50 average on the highway. The car comes with a handy screen at eye level with the speedometer that tells you how much gas you use. I love this feature! And when you put gas in, you can adjust the price per gallon and the car will tell you how much it cost to make even the smallest trip. The settings and everything are super easy to figure out without having to read the manual for everything. There are 2 screens. One for your engine and mpg readout. The other is the radio and other add on features. My car did not come with GPS, but you can have that added into the car. The only downside to that is the cost of upgrading the GPS every year can add up quickly. The seats in the car also fold down very nicely, and you'll be amazed at how much you can actually fit in the Prius! On long road trips I like to lay down the seats and make a bed in the back. Since the car charges its hybrid battery automatically, you can have the car on for a good amount of time and use very little gas. Since the key is a fob and does not actually go in anything to start the car, they can be expensive to replace. But I have never had to, and it's really easy to change the battery yourself. If you leave the car on and start walking away the car beeps at you to let you know. You can also unlock the car by touching the door handle with the key in your pocket or purse. The car starts different, but once you get used to it, "normal" cars will feel weird to you.
