This year, you have a myriad of options for choosing an environmentally friendly car. However, nothing can beat the latest model of Toyota Prius, the third-generation of Hybrid Prius that is available in the combination of highest versatility, great fuel economy, and an inexpensive price. It is an extremely efficient car in terms of money and environment. If you are more caring for conservation instead of driving, this is the top-notch choice at a relatively low price. After the release in the fall, Toyota Prius, despite of little or no changes as compared to its 2010 model, has become the most recognizable
success story of hybrid cars for which the credit goes to the blend of economic price, environmental friendliness, and ultra-high mileage.


All the variants of Toyota Prius are equipped with 1798cc, 1.8 litre 3ZR-FXE, and inline VVT-i engine to offer a top power of 73 Kw at 5200 rpm as well as a top torque of 142 Nm at 4000 rpm. In addition, the fuel system is also the same, which is Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI). Further, no matter which variant you choose, all of them have EPA fuel economy of 50 mg, manual transmissions, four cylinders, and a petrol fuel tank holding a capacity of 45 litres.


The latest model of Toyota Prius, instead of a big hatchback, seems like a small, versatile, and efficient lavish sedan. The design is such that it maximizes the comfort cabin of all its five seaters. It offers many comfort features such as accessory power outlet, auto climate control, power windows, trunk lights, power steering, and low fuel warning lights. Coming to its exterior features, this highly versatile car possesses Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), adjustable headlights, fog lamps, body-colored bumpers, antenna, boot release, tinted glass, and wheel covers. In addition, its digital instrument panel is appealing with the floating layer of temperature, audio, and trip computer display just on the touching the steering wheel. However, the only drawback of this car is its material quality due to harder plastics.


Prius has been made in such a way that no customer can be disappointed. The design is such that it maximizes the comfort cabin space to ensure comfortable seating to all its five seaters and facilitate high cargo capacity. However, those who are tall will yet have to drive with a far-placed steering wheel. The car comes with a built-in air conditioner, digital clock, glove compartment, music system, audio system remote control, and front and rear speakers.


The safety features truly reveals that Prius is the safest car of this year. Expect all possible utilities such as optional anti-theft alarm, central locking, airbags, child lock, rear view mirrors, seat belt warning, engine check, keyless entry, power door locks, and front and side impact beams.
