Reviews for Toyota Prius

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5(410 reviews)

Absolutely love this car!

Gas mileage is incredible (averaging just over 50 MPG), car is comfortable, fun to drive, very easy to maneuver, and has more pep then I expected. I love the way it gives you a trip summary of your miles, time and fuel cost. Stereo is excellent, AC very cold.

- Sean O'GRADY, 2013 Toyota Prius

Average weekly fuel costs way down! :)

Anyone who enjoys commuting in comfort for a very reasonable price should seriously consider a Prius IV, heated leather seats, JBL sound system with audio port for MP3, AND a CD player, thermostatic temperture control, very low fuel consumption, need I say more?

- Rick Kosinski, 2010 Toyota Prius

Best Car I Ever Bought

Aside from the great gas mileage, there are more reasons to buy this car: 1: it's deceivingly roomy! I have long legs and so my seat goes all the way back. There is still plenty of leg room for a grown adult in the back. And all the seats are very comfortable. 2: the back storage area is very large - I can put all of my work tools and cases back there without sacrificing any passenger room. As I said earlier, these cars are deceptively roomy inside. 3: the electronics in this car are top notch. In my opinion, no other car maker does blue tooth systems better than Toyota. My iPhone works flawlessly in this car. Best car I ever bought.
