How the Toyota Prius Hybrid Compact stays on top

In the latest Toyota video, the goal was to show you that in spite of its longevity, it's competition, and the changes in the marketplace, the Toyota Prius remains mighty and undaunted. Toyota has found a way to keep a good thing at the forefront of ther segment.

Getting behind the wheel of the Prius once again reminds me of the details Toyota brings out in this car and all the cool little things that makes this little legendary vehicle so cool. To be as small as it is in the compact class, you'll see in the review video that I was quite comfortable. I had ample headspace, leg space and more.

What you also find out in the video is just how reliable and consistent the Prius is. You'll check out the inside, the exterior design and of course the drive quality. You'll also recognize that Toyota is among the few innovators in the segment when you tie all three elements together.

Toyota Prius is a good car and in the show above, you'll see why it bests nearly all other hybrid cars in fuel efficiency and boasts a huge cargo hold. We tested the Limited trim which includes SofTex seats and power-adjustable driver's seats, and the Limited has the auto-dimming rearview mirror and heated steering wheel.

There's also ample, comfortable seating space and a long list of features. This is not the kind of car that you should expect extraordinary driving dynamics. It gets the job done and owners are happy.

So enjoy the review, leave a comment, and be sure just stay tuned for upcoming events, contest, prizes and more.
