Editor's Overview

While the 2017 Toyota Prius hybrid embodies the original car’s same basic concept, that being an internal-combustion engine wedded to an electric motor, the latest version is both stylistically and technologically leaps and bounds better. The latest Prius remains the fuel-economy leader, joined this year by the all-new Prius Prime plug-in hybrid.

The radar tells you if you are going over the white line.

We love the gas mileage. We fill our 12 gallon tank every other week on Tuesday when we get 20 cents off. The Prius is a very easy handling car to drive. The only thing we do not like is there is no windshield wiper on the back window. We like the shifting lever. We like that you do not have to put your key in the starter, only have the key on yourself. We like the cruise control and love the radar control. It also has an automatic dimmer if you should have the brights on. It is a great car. It is a comfortable ride too.

- Ethel C

Good car, repair free and reliable driving at an economic consumption level.

Great design that makes this car nimble to maneuver through city traffic and parking. The mpg is consistently over 50 and requires me to get gas once in the two weeks. The hatchback is great for carrying groceries and items of relatively heavy size. Never has any problems with starting or driving in bad weather. Because the batteries are underneath they give the car a low gravity point making it good in snow driving. The all inclusive lease gives us service at periodic times. The dealer is efficient and pleasant.

- Arthur H

A happy car for everyone!

I love my Prius. I love not having to fill up with gas as often, and I love how quiet the car is. I do not love the brakes- sometimes on bumpy surfaces, I have to pump the brakes a couple times before it is stable again. But I love everything else about the car. I get warning alerts if another car is too close, or when the car thinks I should brake immediately. I generally feel very safe in this car and would highly recommend it to others.
