2012 Toyota Prius Summary


The Toyota Prius achieves an EPA-estimated 51/48 mpg. It's practical, with plenty of cargo space. The interior design is futuristic without being out there, and the front seats are comfortable. The available leather and upgraded materials are classy. The suspension is sharp over patchy pavement, and road noise is surprisingly high. The Plug-in Hybrid version adds a little more versatility with its ability to run longer and faster in full-electric mode.

Sam Moses filed this report to NewCarTestDrive.com after his test drive of the Prius in California's Napa Valley and of a Prius PHV prototype near Portland, Oregon; with Mitch McCullough reporting on the Prius Plug-in Hybrid from New Jersey.
