The Prius is a fantastic well styled car, I have more than 4 years experience, since 6 months I drive the new Prius III. Very fuel economic and great driving experience with the new power shift! Ergonomic, pleasant and quiet. Prius bashing on the carbuzz blog is popular but very narrowminded, join the Prius lovers!

I must admit that 49MPG is pretty good. Still hate priī

Hahaha you should take your "smart investment" and drive off a cliff. Do the world a favor and make sure it full of green idiots too.
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
too bad I could feed my family for a year or two with the difference between a normal car and a prius.... Flawed logic.
Landon Combass Sep 21, 2011
Prius is a smart investment for people who care more about feeding their family than going fast in a sports car.
Matt Robbins Sep 21, 2011
Sorry CarBuzz but I care to read about this garbage about as much as I want to step in dog crap.
Description: The Prius Plug-in can only travel 15 miles as a pure electric, while the Volt can easily do double that, and sometimes triple. The Volt's range seems much more suited to saving fuel while doing o...

Sporty prius??? Plz pick me up I'm on the floor.
Landon Combass Sep 28, 2011
Thank you Joshua this car is amazing for what it is made for.
Joshua Grant Robinson Sep 28, 2011
My pickup gets 11 mpg so I'd drive the tires off that thing! And go ahead revoke my man card its a good lookin' car in the hybrid state of mind! I'd rather drive any number of pickups but when you can't leave town without packing gas! Well........
Landon Combass Sep 25, 2011
A lot of men don't drive this car because their self absorbed and it will hurt their pride.
Patrick Schalk Sep 22, 2011
Landon, your man card has just been revoked.
Zach Beau Christiansen Sep 22, 2011
I wouldn't expect too much from a guy who's dream car is a hundai elantra lol sad
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
Landon loves this. I put my vote to remove your genes from the gene pool.
Landon Combass Sep 21, 2011
I think it's pretty. It's the face of future cars to come.
Jesus Guerra Sep 21, 2011
Gorgeous !!! Haha just kidding I love reading articles of Prius because of the hilarious post people make. But for reals its a joke that it's gorgeous for those that have no humor!

do you call that an interior look at the air conditioner and try to buy this car, you'll never gonna buy it after it
Ardon Polukoff Oct 29, 2011
Correct me if I'm wrong but Toyota offers an optional heads up display
David Rosenberg Oct 04, 2011
Yaris interior with navigation that gives u the wrong ways
Duncan Gibson Sep 22, 2011
Interior is actually OK.
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
You just have to look of to the side??? I still think every car should have a HUD that is displayed on the windshield like the corvettes, those are extremely convenient and not a distraction. EVERY car should have that.
Landon Combass Sep 21, 2011
Being high up on the dash board makes where you don't have to take you vision away from the road as much.
Shane Carroll Sep 21, 2011
What happened to having the guage cluster in FRONT of you? God this car just rubs me the wrong way
Johnny Francis Sep 21, 2011
Hahahahhahaha that's disgusting
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
Thanks Robby. Should I kill you now too so we don't have to look at this?
Patrick Schalk Sep 22, 2011
Hahaha me' too Matt. All I think about when I see a Prius is a stinky hippy who sniffs up his own farts.
Matt Robbins Sep 21, 2011
But you don't save any money. It's a farce. You lose money in the long run if you keep one of these POS the average length a normal consumer does, putting an average of 10k a year on it. This reminds me of that South Park episode so much...
Hamza Hamid Sep 21, 2011
Why do people hate this car?? I got outran by it in my Honda.. :(
Landon Combass Sep 21, 2011
Most people buy this car to save money not to save the earth.
Shane Carroll Sep 21, 2011
@Kevin good point. Save gas so I can burn it up
Kevin Rehbock Sep 21, 2011
About a million people in the states like Priuses. Or Prii. That means people like us have more real cars to buy.
Robby Bradford Sep 21, 2011
And nobody likes priuses
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
No one likes hippies.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2011
I know right? Hippies don't like sports
Isaac Jacob Jimenez Sep 21, 2011
WTF why would a prius have xm sports?
Amira Baz Apr 01, 2012
if four mice held this car and moved it, it will be faster than uskng this engine
Ken Madison Sep 22, 2011
Silly Kevin, only civics use hampered wheels. The normal has 4 hamsters powering it, the R type has 5.
Kevin Rehbock Sep 22, 2011
Where does the hamster wheel go?
Matt Robbins Sep 21, 2011
If you look closely to the top-right of the picture you can see the Summers Eve overflow container.
Landon Combass Sep 21, 2011
I think I wont be able to handle the speed
Jt Collier Sep 21, 2011
Im pretty sure bugatti is using a quad turbocharged version of this beast in the veyrons, not sure why you need the turbos with this monster, the electric sewing machine growl that comes from it is pure sex to the ears
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
Wow Landon, just drop one of these bad boys in your Cherokee.
Landon Combass Sep 21, 2011
This just might outrun my Grand Cherokee. Lol
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
I was wondering if I would have to beef up my transmission and rear axle.
Shane Carroll Sep 21, 2011
I know, this beast would just rip the motor mounts out and chew up the transmission.
Johnny Francis Sep 21, 2011
Your z06 can't handle these horses Ken, what are you thinking?
Ken Madison Sep 21, 2011
Damn. Can I drop this into my Z06???
