Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2015 Toyota Prius gets a special edition this year, while the rest of the lineup remains unchanged. The Prius Persona Series Special Edition adds dark-finish 17-inch wheels, heated outside mirrors, dark chrome accents inside, and is painted either Blizzard Pearl or Absolutely Red.
As the best-selling hybrid in the world, it's no surprise that the 2015 Toyota Prius is the car most people think of when they hear the word "hybrid." With traditional and plug-in models available, the fuel-efficient 5-door hatchbacks pair a thrifty gasoline engine to an electric motor. Thanks to some very clever drivetrain programming, you'll get excellent fuel economy almost regardless of how heavy you are on the gas pedal. It does this with all the practicality of any hatchback, with a decently sized rear seat and plenty of cargo room. These days, the Toyota Prius faces stiff competition from the more refined Ford C-Max and Chevrolet Volt – both of which are more engaging to drive – but remains the hybrid to beat.View Toyota Prius vehicles for sale near you.

"Have a 2011 toyota prius, after about 17,000 freeway miles I started to notice a intermittent rattling noise in the dash, I spent hours of annoyed driving trying to pin point the location, and every time I would take a dealer on a test drive of course it wouldn't do it. After 30,000 miles I simply cant handle the headache. If you look online and research Toyota Prius Rattles, more than 900 different complaints can be found on a single forum. The fact that more than 3 toyota dealerships in the bay area refused to do anything about it just made the matter worse. The dealership the car even came from said "we aren't going to go chasing after some rattle that might not even be there in the first place." Wouldn't even take apart and reassemble the dash on a new car under warranty with multiple customer complaints. With more online research I uncovered I wasn't alone, and toyotas refusal to help me in this situation has resolved me to sell this car and buy a 3 series BMW. Be extremely weary of cars starting prices, if they are low the build quality will always be poor. You can add expensive electronics, different engines, and better seats, but the interior design and plastics will always be the same. You might say a little rattling is nothing, but remember the Prius itself is really quiet, so if you dont have the radio turned up to a DECENT volume you will be reminded of your cars economical build quality."

"Large enough to carry lots of cargo, 5 adults easily, very good mileage, excellent feedback via gauges to help and inform, standard stereo very good, dash lights could be brighter, but are adequate. Comfy seats, driver's seat has adjustable height. Installed a block heater - would like to see them come standard for northern states (USA). Overall, very pleased with the car. 52.7 mpg average to date."

"the Prius is the best car on the road in my opinion. I'm on my second one and you don't have to sacrifice creature comforts to drive one. Once you get past the fact that the car is not a sports car and realize that you can get over 50mpg by watiching how you drive, you will quickly be driving with a very light foot to maximize your mileage and that becomes a game you play with each new tank of gas. I'll never go back to a gas engine car."
