2005 Toyota Prius Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Toyota Prius

  • The new Prius' skin turns in a coefficient of drag of 0.26, about the lowest ever for a production car.

    - AutoWeek
  • All that adds up to 60 mpg city, 50 highway, not to mention Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle and Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle classifications.

    - AutoWeek
  • Lighter, lower-friction pistons, a revised combustion-chamber design, and remapped variable valve timing help increase engine power by six ponies, to 76.

    - Car and Driver
  • A dashboard monitor allows you to see which engine is doing the work, and how much energy is being used at any given time, among other things.

  • The all-new Prius is a legitimate family sedan that offers everything you would expect -- like solid build quality and refinement -- and a few things you don't -- like a base price of just $20,000.

  • It's roomy, with back seats that seat two adults and lots of cargo space. The fabric upholstery is as good as it gets.

Toyota Prius Comparisons

  • Cargo space is 16.1 cubic feet, more than one-third larger than the 2003's 11.8 cubic feet and half again the Civic's 10.1 cubic feet and coming perilously close to the Camry's 16.7 cubic feet.
