This Prius is pretty zippy

Two

I drive a 2018 Toyota Prius. This car is pretty amazing. I drive 40 miles to and from work 5 days a week. I average 50 MPG. I fill up my tank on a Monday for around $20.00 and that will last me 7-8 days. I drive a highway that is quite hilly. My Prius handles them with ease. It has 3 different drive modes for me to chose from. I use power mode on the highway because it allows me more horsepower for the hills. It is comfortable to drive and very roomy in the back seat. There is a lot of cargo space in the back as well. The sound system is top notch With Bluetooth features that are easy to connect to. Most controls for the radio and operating system are on the steering wheel. This car also features radar controlled cruise control. This takes some getting used to but once you get use it and get the hang of how it works it is pretty amazing. It also has a lane departure warning system when this is turned on it will flash a coffee cup up on the display and ask you if you need to take a break when you have set off the warning too often. There is one feature on this car that I haven't used. It is the self parking mode. It will parallel park itself. The dealer showed us how this works and it worked great I just am not sure how I feel about not having control of the car. I would rather park on my own. The only feature I don't care for are the auto high beams. They don't always work right and I feel like I am flashing people in the morning on my way to work. This is not our first Prius. We had a 2014 Prius and I was not really impressed with that car. But the 2018 has a lot of new features. The thing I enjoy most about my car is that it is sporty looking, comfortable to drive and believe it or not it is pretty zippy.

Reliable, smooth driving, strong performance, very safe, and also comfortable.

Two Eco

No problems at all, the performance option is very quick, has a normal option for smooth coasting and has an ECO mode to save lots of fuel. I get about 61-64 mpg, fill it up every 2.5-3 weeks. Very reliable, it's 2018 so now problems yet. It has a plethora for sensors as well lane change, radar cruise control which is amazing on long trips (slows and accelerates based on car distance), it also has a nice display area for speedometer and radio. The seats are comfy, the front right passenger seat is about short on leg room. The automatic bright headlights are a nice option for road visibility on dark streets. The Bluetooth speaker is very reliable and clear sounds. The A/C is very cold, perfect for warm climates. It has automatic breaking for accident avoidance.

I Love My 2019 Prius!

This is my second Prius, it was hard to rid myself of my first one because there was nothing wrong with it after twelve years, but I wanted a sunroof. The 19 was off-putting at first because I thought it was ugly, but after looking through utube videos of reviews over a three week period I got over that. Good thing, because this car is as wonderful as my previous one but super luxiourious. It’s so much fun to drive and handles beautifully. My favorite feature is a windshield wiper that determines how often it need swipe, based on the rainfall. I simply turn it on and when it starts pouring the wipers move continually, when the rain slows down so do the wipers. It’s effortless. I love this car for so many reasons. The gas mileage is an added plus!
