The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.2
6.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2015 Toyota Prius is still the most fuel-efficient gasoline car on the market, at 50 mpg; its iconic hatchback shape offers a spacious interior that can seat five, though the handling is nothing to write home about. The 2014 Toyota Prius V combines a spacious interior with excellent real-world gas mileage but it can feel underpowered when heavily loaded.
