2004 Toyota Prius

Gas Sipper!
The Toyota Prius certainly lives up to expectations with its fuel economy. Averaging 45 to 50mpg, this zippy eco car is worth every penny, especially for city drivers. The interior is roomy, and the aerodynamics are brilliant. At 250 000km and counting this car has proven to be the most reliable one I've owned to date.

2008 Toyota Prius

Trim: Standard

Only buy this if fuel economy is your #1 priority
I like the idea of the Prius - I'm all for hybrid technology - but the reality is a car that just isn't very fun to drive. I drove this car for several weeks as a rental and while it is undeniably good on gas & the "joy stick" shifter was a novelty (at first) it just doesn't have the things that I love in a car i.e. an engine that puts out more than 80 hp and actually makes noise. The Prius is quiet - too quiet for my taste. As far as exterior styling I like the steeply sloped front end on the '08 the interior is "meh" - kind of plastic-y looking, not very exciting. And I'm afraid "not very exciting" is my overall feelings towards the Prius.

2012 Toyota Prius

Go Prius and You'll Never Look Back
This is the best car out there right now. It is luxurious, comfortable and the investment in the car for itself is essentially an investment in not having to be a victim of fluctuating gas prices. I fill up maybe every three weeks or so with moderate driving. On the highway when you need a bit of a boost in speed you can hit the PWR mode and you feel like you're in a racecar.

Can't say enough good things about the Prius- I'm in love.
