Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

The junior member of the Toyota Prius family, the Prius c provides the outstanding efficiency you expect from the bloodline in a smaller, less expensive package. That combination of price and hybrid know-how makes the little hatchback remarkably easy to own.

What's New for 2015

The Prius c wears a new grille and exterior lighting. A sunroof and rearview camera are now standard on the top trim level.

Choosing Your Toyota Prius c

While the standard Prius already dwells on the smaller end of the size spectrum, the C manages to be 19 inches shorter and 500 pounds lighter, which puts it firmly in the subcompact class. Like others of its ilk, the Prius c offers fine urban agility and is a cinch to park.

The hybrid power plant consists of a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor that together produce 99 horsepower. Like other Prius models, the c features front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). You can expect to achieve 53 mpg around town and 46 mpg on the highway. In combined driving, you get a solid 50 mpg.

The Prius c comes in four ascending trim levels, dubbed One through Four.

Toyota Prius c

One

Carries all the expected passenger-car conveniences, plus automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone and audio, a 6.1-inch touchscreen and a solid-folding rear seat. The sound system comes with four speakers and a CD player. The One rolls on 15-inch steel wheels.

Toyota Prius c

Two

Adds cruise control and a number of interior upgrades, including a split-folding rear seat, a cargo cover, two additional speakers and a storage console.

Toyota Prius c

Three

Kicks up the technology quotient with a navigation system, integrated smartphone apps, keyless access and ignition, satellite radio and voice controls. A sunroof and alloy wheels are available as standalone options.

Toyota Prius c

Four

Comes standard with the Three's options, plus leather-like vinyl upholstery, heated mirrors and front seats, foglamps and a rearview camera. Sixteen-inch wheels are available as an upgrade.

CarsDirect Tip

Since the One lacks essential equipment like cruise control and a split-folding seat, we recommend starting with the Two, which is only slightly more expensive. Let your thirst for technology and budget (it's a $4,000 leap from the Two to the Four) determine whether further upgrades are necessary.
