Where else can you go getting an average of over 55 mpg and have fun while doing it. I can wave at gas stations with needing to fuel every minimum 2 weeks. This non plug in Prius is wonderful.

JD Powers? Really? They are mercenaries.

This is my second Toyota Prius. My first was a 2015 and it was a good reliable cheap to run car. My 2018 is a better car by far. More comfortable, quiet, better mileage and better handling than the previous versions. The adaptive cruise along with all the other safety features makes this car a better car than previous years. So far, with 25000 miles on it, not one problem. Gas mileage of over 60 MPG in the summer and the mid 50's in winter. Hauling ability is excellent with this car. You can stretch out and sleep in the back with the seats down while allowing the A/C to run all night as the A/C unit is electric and the lithium ion batteries can run it all night. I've saved tons on motel bills while traveling. It's like a mini camper! Tires are fairly inexpensive for this car. Ride quality is much improved over previous years. Toyota has added more sound insulation to the 2018's and newer so it is more comfortable on the ears when driving or listening to the excellent JBL factory stereo. Now about JD Powers. It is nothing more than an advertising company. Any car company can pay them for a good review and get their JD Powers awards....which means NOTHING. Gullible people will see the JD Powers award and think that they are getting quality...which often times they are not. Finally, I highly recommend the Toyota Prius....the batteries will last a long time and being a hybrid, you will really enjoy not having to stop at the gas stations so often.

2018 Toyota Prius Overview

The 2018 Toyota Prius is a fuel-efficient hybrid hatchback.

The Prius has four available trims, which are conveniently named the One, Two, Three, and Four. However, there are additional variants of the Two, Three, and Four trims. The Two Eco has slightly better fuel economy and more convenience features than the regular Two trim. Touring versions of the Three and Four trims come with more premium, leatherette seats.

Under the hood, the Prius trims are powered by the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas engine which combines with an electric motor. Fuel efficiency for most of the Prius trims is an EPA-estimated 54/50 mpg city/highway, while the Two Eco earns an improved 58/53 mpg rating.
