Toyota Prius – Consumer Reports

Toyota Prius – Consumer Reports

Toyota Prius Overview

The Prius is extremely economical, averaging 44 mpg overall, and 55 mpg on the highway in our tests. With light throttle input it can quietly drive on electric power up to 25 mph. The ride is firm yet steady, and handling is sound and secure, but not particularly agile. Road noise is pronounced. The interior is roomy, but fit and finish is just so-so and some controls take a bit of getting used to. The plug-in version typically delivers around 12 miles on electricity, boosting mileage to the equivalent of 67 mpg. When the electric range is depleted, the car reverts to regular Prius performance, averaging 43 mpg overall. Reliability for the Prius is outstanding but the plug-in is just average.
