An automotive icon, the Toyota Prius brought hybrid technology into the mainstream. For years, it was cool to drive a Prius with a 50mpg fuel economy rating despite its modest performance. These days the Prius has competition from both hybrids and electric vehicles. Toyota offers a traditional hybrid and a Prius plug-in hybrid, and you can even get all-wheel drive. Compared to earlier versions, the current Toyota Prius might startle you with its quickness and adroit handling around corners. Otherwise, the Toyota Prius remains true to the original version: a spacious, 4-door hatchback that's most enjoyable as a commuter car.
