the interior looks a little on the cheap side for a car that's going to cost $19k....and those taillights look terrible from the side.

That interior is just awful. I don't know why they thought it was necessary to shape the nose of the car like that either.

Craig

Looks like they copied the interior from a 1990 Chevy Lumina.

Jeff

It looks like they just bastardized a 2012 Yaris.... like they just wanted a 'cheap' version, and thats what they got; an ugly, cheap knock off of another of there own vehicles... yuck

GEORGE POTTER

1st one to come out with a leather seat kit for that car will make a fortune!

What a bunch of whining old ladies. I think the rear lights provide good side visibility of the brakes and turn signals. The front end is not that much different than the Yaris, or even some Mazda models. Why don't you girls take your Prada handbag, go down to Starbucks and give then $6 for .25¢ worth of coffee.

I love that they are making a smaller Prius. I have a 2-seat Honda Insight and the Prius has seemed rather large to me for years.

Mike-Mat, you are my hero for saying exactly what I was just thinking about the previous comments! I think it's great that Toyota is finding a way to produce a car that normally not everyone could afford. For some people the tradition Prius as we know it just isn't an option financially. Toyota is being truly innovative with this one!
Besides, I like it!!! If you don't like it then don't buy it... just keep driving your Tahoes...

Mike

Total dork-mobile

Why four doors? A two-passenger vehicle would have made more sense. I guarantee you that this car will seldom be driven with more than two passengers. Do automotive designers ever look at the roads and see the number of people in the cars? EVER?

Hennesea

This is nothing like what was presented in recent advertisements. Very disappointing. Out of the running for my planned 2013 car purchase.

If the car is too short, it kills the aerodynamics (and the mileage). Hence the longer four door car.

If it doesn't come in a stick I'm not buying it.

'm probably older than the average person commenting on this thread. I'm not super old, I'm 50. I'm proof that people become more tight with money as we get older. The Prius C is a perfect car for a tightwad. Low payments. Low insurance rate. Low sales taxes. Low operating expense. It's a Toyota so it's going to have less depreciation and have greater trade in value. Total cost of ownership will be quite low. With this car I would save enough money to take small weekend vacations to places like Chicago or Branson. I'd be taking those trips with a car that gets 46 MPG highway. Where do I sign up?

vdub

I wish vw could build a car that gets 53 mpg in the city. Toyota is the top of the heap.

Ritzarov

Its nice that Prius has some new variations, but has anyone noticed that the trade-in values of aused Prius has fallen through the floor? My 2009 is now worth about half of original DISCOUNTED price against a year-end 2011.

Dymaxion

Thank you Toyota for getting rid of that stupid spoiler & accompanying blind spot.

I'm a "Prius Geek" already own a 2007. Exterior of the "C" isn't too bad, but they're going to loose even the other "Prius Geeks" with that dashboard. Reminds me of the early 60's model Oldsmobile I learned to drive in. And we're not too thrilled by the center mounted speedometer either.

Maybe it will look better in person.

Seems resale fluctuates greatly depending on fuel prices and area of country, at one point last year the dealer offered me 2K more than I'd paid for it the year before if I'd sell it back to him.

Kept the car anyway.

Toyota JUST released their Virtual Booth for the Detroit Auto Show. It's pretty awesome.

It looks like Toyota has some pretty nice Hybrid/Green Cars on the way..

Here's the video/link for it:

This makes more sense to me than the slowly growing standard prius, but I still prefer the original Insight.

AladdinSane

I dig the aqua blue color of this model Prius...I hope this newer, smaller version of the Prius handles better. Speaking for myself, numb steering is a number one culprit in the full size model.
Peace!<-

Tom Prebys

Hey, the new Prius C looks good to me and I'm 74! My first car was a 1965 red VW with only about 40 HP, but I loved it. I've signed up to buy the new C and believe that it will be exactly the car I now need in an urban environment; I hope that it will be quiet and comfortable enough for occasional highway travel.

after purchasing a prius c, the money i save on gas pays for most of the monthly car payment! 480+ miles per tankful.
