The C-Max Energi is very comfortable and very quiet. I love the plug in ability, I drive mostly around town so I average 75 miles a gallon. This is because I have a very short commute and usually go under 20 miles a day so I can go the whole day on electric. If it was only a Hybrid and only got 40 miles per gallon I would still love the car. It seems like a luxury car that gets very good fuel mileage. The car has a lot of windows and that is great except it heats up really fast in the sun.
2015 Prius is awesome in terms of mileage, driving 17 miles one way to work, mostly highway miles and have reached 52.3 MPG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing below 51 MPG yet. Plenty of leg room for our family of 5, and I can even sit in the back at 6'1" and still have plenty of leg room also. Ride is surprisingly smooth and steering is very well controlled, never thought that would be the case
The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE feels luxurious. It also has surprising pick-up. It doesn't hurt that it gets 40 miles, or more, to the gallon of gas. The second best Hybrid that I found (but did not buy) is the Volkswagen Turbo DIESEL Hybrid Jetta.
Love my Volt, just wish it had a bit more range. 60+ would be ideal.
Performed routine maintenance at scheduled intervals!
I have no doubt I would give the overall rating of this car 5 stars were it not for the arrogance of the manufacturer to own up to problems and provided quality customer service. But, Toyota, like most auto manufacturers is only interested in the bottom line and will ignore known problems, even try to hide them. This car is superb in so many ways, that it is disgusting the manufacturer would allow ill will to exist on peripheral issues. Our big issue is the abominable navigation system.
Love IT! The ride is so quiet and smooth. Plenty of power and solid feel. Electronics are great - lots of info and links to my phone seamlessly. I have a 40 mile (RT) commute and I'm still on my first tank of gas after 4 1/2 months!
