Versatile, well-built, and efficient
I was looking for a wagon that gets good gas mileage, reliable, and has room for my family of 4 plus a 90 lb dog. It ticks all the boxes. Build quality is good as you would expect from a Toyota. It is classic Toyota, does what is designed to do very proficiently. There is a little bit of a learning curve on driving it getting used to the acceleration. The 4 cylinder struggles at times to move the car if asked to be expeditious, but if I think back to engines of a while ago, the acceleration is normal. - just not what we are used to with some of the higher powered sedans/SUVs that exist now. .29cd makes it slippery but 134 hp limits its capability in accelerating - I am fine with it - just have to plan a little more before pulling out. I was debating between the Outback and this, and reliability/safety with a family in our WI climate is the most important feature for me and Toyota has that in spades in their vehicles. Like the fact that the a/c is electric and runs off the traction battery. I have had the car for 3 weeks and 1000 miles approx. Avg 40 mpgs
Best Decision I could have made!
I bought this vehicle after two of my friends purchased regular Pruis models. I loved the extra space available and overall appearance of the car. When I test drove it, I fell in love and decided to buy it! It has been the best decision I have ever made. It is a good size vehicle and allows me to travel with both of my dogs and cargo. It would for a good family car and is a great road tripping car! LOVE IT!
Great auto terrible Dealer Culver City Toyota
Much better viability than standard Prius. Interior great but selector dial requires getting use to. It's rather touchy. Mileage less than regular Prius but still good.
