2013 Toyota Prius C Two Hatchback

2013 Toyota Prius C Review

(0 Stars)  Everyman’s Prius.

New For 2013
Largely unchanged for 2013.
The 2013 Toyota Prius c delivers on the values that Toyota has always promised to drivers: practicality, efficiency and affordability. It’s easy to think of the 2013 Prius c as simple the cheapest Prius that you can buy, yet we think it’s actually the best. For $19,080, you can get into a small practical car that combines the utility of a hatchback with the ability to get 53 mpg around town, and it’s all wrapped up in a user-friendly package that actually has more style both inside and out than anything else in the Prius model range. The Prius c begins with a package that offers less passenger volume than the full-size Prius, yet the intimate dimensions give the car a sportier feel, plus the cabin has far more style than any other Prius. The 1.5-liter engine is matched with an electric hybrid powertrain, and the result is an astounding 53 mpg around town in this lightweight 2500-lb car. The 2013 Prius c isn’t quite as refined as its larger Prius siblings in terms of ride quality and noise isolation, yet we prefer to think of it as sporty and maneuverable, and the price clinches the deal.
