2012 Toyota Prius C Review and Road Test
In the geek world we have "Moore's law" which states the number of
transistors in ICs will double every two years. In the automotive world we
have the bloat law. Every generation of a vehicle will get more powerful,
heavier and physically larger than its predecessor, ultimately requiring
the manufacturer to design an entirely new, smaller car to fill the void
left by the original.
Back in 2001, the original Prius cost $19,995, weighed 2,765lbs and
delivered 52/45MPG. Three generations later it costs $24,000, tips the
scales at 3,050lbs, yields 51/48MPG and is far more practical for a family
of four. Listing for $1,000 less than the original Prius and weighing a
svelte 2,500lbs, the baby Prius delivers 53/46MPG of hatchback hybrid love.
More important than the weight loss routine is the fact that this new Prius
is "only" $4,835 more expensive than the Toyota's Yaris (the cheapest
5-door economy car in their US lineup.) That might sound like a big chunk
of change, but back in 2001, the Prius was $6,591 dearer. We can thank this
price difference to Toyota's continuing efforts to downsize their hybrid
system's footprint and price tag. Speaking of that footprint, the Prius c
manages to weigh only 185lbs more than the 5-door Yaris L while the
original Prius was 700lbs heavier than the Echo of the era. For once
downsizing is progress.
Harkening back to the Prius origins isn't just something I wax poetic
about, Toyota did as well resurrecting the original 1.5L engine from the
first generation Prius. While the engine is essentially the same it now
produces 73HP and 82b-ft of torque, up 3HP due mostly to the removal of all
the belt driven accessories including the water pump. Rather than lifting
the old Hybrid Synergy Drive from the first gen Prius or borrowing the
liftback's larger transaxle, Toyota designed an all-new unit with smaller
motors and considerably smaller packaging. Total system horsepower is rated at 99HP
and around 125lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the Prius c's low curb weight, the
power reduction compared to the liftback isn't obvious, with the Prius c
scooting to 60 in just under 11 seconds.
The Prius c may be the smallest and cheapest member of the Prius family,
but it may also be the best. It preserves the funkiness of the center mount
cluster while giving up some quirkiness to convention. Not to mention,
excellent fuel economy is addictive. While I may not be willing to get out
of my SUV for 30 or 40MPG, 50+ MPG makes the trade something else entirely.
It also makes the Yaris redundant. I can't honestly think of a single
reason to get the Yaris over the Prius c, considering that the difference
in cost would be made up over the car's life. I am frequently asked what
my favorite car is, and I don't know if I have one -- but the Prius c, for
its reasonable price and high fuel economy, is certainly on the very short
list of cars that I would buy myself.

Toyota Prius C review
Toyota Prius fuel-economy for less money seems like a perfect idea, but
Consumer Reports tests of the small Prius C hybrid reveal that the car's
execution falls short.
2013 Ford Fiesta vs Toyota Prius C vs Scion IQ Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 2013 Ford Fiesta and the Toyota Prius C
and the Scion IQ are the ultimate city cars. They are all small , fuel
efficient and they barely seat 4 people. In others they are great cars for
the city where parking space is at a premium. They can also be a hoot to
drive and for many people they are the perfect first car because they are
inexpensive. But which of these three cars is the most fun to drive, which
one handless the best and which one is the fastest from 0-60 MPH? Find out
in another fun, Informative and entertaining TFLcar mashup review.

2012 Toyota Prius C review
Toyota has expanded the Prius family to include the smaller C for"City". A
subcompact hybrid that sips fuel and delivers a slightly more engaging
drive than the regular Prius.
2012 Toyota Prius C Hybrid exposed Inside & Out
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Toyota Prius C gets the highest MPG in
the city in America of any vehicle on the road that does not have a plug.
At 53 city MPG the smallest of the new Prius line sips fuel to make the
most of every gallon. We recently had the chance to get to know the new
Prius C to find out what makes it tick and just how it manages to get such
high mileage in the city.
