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.
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.
The Prius has generally exceeded my expectations from the MPG perspective. During the summer I tend to see averages around 52-53 and during the winter 45. Overall the car is comfortable and is holding together very well. The best part is the fill-up. Even at the higher gas prices I rarely put in more that $40.
The dealership has been a nightmare and Toyota U.S.A. does not really care about its customers it seems to me. I really like the solar roof and ventilation, as well as the large sunroof. The cruise control is fantastic because it keeps the car at a constant speed, even when going down steep hills due to the generators charging the batteries. The car is a good value, even at the price. I see the envy in peoples eyes at the gas pump. Overall I am glad I bought the car. Beware of dealers!
This is an excellent vehicle. It is comfortable and roomy specially for cargo. With the back seats folded down you have more than enough room for carting anything around. There is plenty of head and leg room. The MPG is the best. I am getting 45 MPG after 5 years of long distance driving. This is not a sports car so yes the pick up is a bit slow but considering the MPG it is well worth it.
The wife loves the proximity key feature. Great on gas and surprisingly roomy. I wasn't too happy with the style initially but it has grown on me. It's a little low on power but what do you expect. I am happy to be saving a lot on gas. I recommend this car, I will be buying another Prius when this one gives up.
