The 2013 Toyota Prius is an excellent choice in the compact car class. It’s a gas-sipping hybrid that offers a winning mix of ride comfort, interior space, reliability, and high fuel economy. Factor in its good safety ratings and it’s easy to see why we named it the 2013 Best Hatchback for Families. Notably, the 2013 Prius c, Prius v, and Prius Plug-in hybrids are reviewed separately. The Prius does have a few drawbacks though. If zippy acceleration or a luxe interior are a must – you’ll want to look elsewhere.
The Toyota Prius has a four-cylinder engine and an electric motor, which together produce 134 horsepower. This hybrid system delivers exceptional fuel economy: 49 mpg in the city and 46 mpg on the highway. However, it doesn’t exactly zip the car along with gusto. The Prius takes a leisurely 10 seconds to get from zero to 60 mph. Also, it can feel underpowered when climbing hills or passing slower vehicles. A continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard.
