The Toyota Prius remains at the head of the pack for fuel-efficient cars, and offers a number of models including a plug-in version.
Although it has always been a small car, recent body changes have included a widening of the base that means more head and leg room. The interior is comfortable and solid, with power lumbar support among the features. Road noise is low, although there is some engine noise.
The 1.8 liter Prius engine is an electric and gas hybrid, which can work a little harder when accelerating quickly. Handling is smooth and steady, with responsive steering and easy maneuverability.
All of the Prius models rank high in fuel economy, with the base model Prius Two coming in at 43 US mpg, the Prius Four at 44 Us mpg, and the Prius Plug-in up to 47 US mpg thanks to the wall plug and larger battery that allows the vehicle to run longer on electricity. That's a range of 5.47 L/100 km to 5 L/100 km.
The Prius is a small car but is big on fuel economy. One of the most popular hybrid models for many years, it remains a best bet for Canadian drivers.
