Toyota Prius Hybrid Exterior and Interior Review

Exterior
The most important thing about the Toyota Prius to look at is the fact that driving this particular hybrid is a fashion statement all of its own. At least 57% of Prius owners seem to think that the fashion statement is a good one, and the exterior of the car only helps aid that argument. At first glance, the exterior lends the opinion that the Prius is a great car, and when you look closer, the Prius’s exterior characteristics are quite intricate and outstanding.
Reviewers and experts alike have given the Prius fantastic rankings and scores just based on the Prius’s exterior. Considering how sleek and stylish most hybrid cars look, being able to win them out for style has shown that the exterior must have some major kudos to turn that many heads.
First of all, the Toyota Prius is not at all a vehicle designed simply for one purpose. No, the Prius was definitely designed to impress its audience, as well as create its own fashion statement that is loud and visible. Like the Chevy Tahoe, another hybrid vehicle, the Prius’s body is designed to reduce wind resistance, allowing the car to move faster and smoother on the road. A particular design, the Kammback design, was developed to help reduce air resistance and the very shape of the car has a low coefficient drag and is functionally and aesthetically pleasing.
Oddly enough, the Toyota Prius has actually prompted its own jargon, such as the rise of “Prius politics,” wherein a driver often purchases a hybrid car so that they can show off. The car’s exterior is incredibly unique and innovative, and so the Prius is easily identifiable by the style and make of the vehicle, and not nearly as much for the fuel-efficiency that the vehicle boats. Granted, the Prius is still a green car, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, so drivers who buy the Prius are not only making a fashion statement, but are also helping to make the country more eco-friendly.
In dealing with hybrids, tires are just as important as the rest of the vehicle, and in the case of the Prius, this is no different. The tires used on the Prius are much better at reducing friction while on the road, given a lower rolling resistance. Thankfully, not only are the tires better with resistance, but they also have a firmer grip on the road, making driving much safer and easier to handle.
Who is the Prius for? The Toyota Prius is for the driver interested in contributing to the reduction of environmental issues. Yet, for the majority of Prius drivers, this vehicle is still a fashion status, and the Prius can be seen as a badge of social ranking as well. In fact, most know that Prius’s are not cheap vehicles, but what sells the Prius even through the price tag is that the exterior just looks that good. If considering a Toyota Prius, the reasons you’re probably doing so are for picking fuel-efficient and a stylish vehicle.
Interior
The basic construction of the Prius utilizes very lightweight materials, and the actually driving experience and the seating arrangement for the passengers is a great compliment to the car. The design for the car is that of a D-segment which means the Prius has plenty of room for driving and riding comfortably. In fact, the interior makes for a very pleasant and cosy ride.
The rear seats can deal with a 60:40 split or completely fold flat, making storage much easier in what seems like a smaller vehicle. In this car, luggage storage won’t be problematic. The Prius’s front seats are based on being of hip-point height to reduce stressful body positioning, enabling a much more comfortable ride. This height makes getting in and out of the car much easier and much more comfortable. I don’t know about you, but I like being able to actually move around after I get into the car.
The Prius hybrid’s interior design is based on being able to utilize a higher position to drive by. This particular positioning is better for the driver by enhancing visibility and comfort. The instrumentation and control panel in the interior give easier control over many of the features. Buttons and controls are all centralized right at the driver’s fingertips around the steering wheel so that you don’t have to stretch across the car anymore just to change the radio station. Even some of the engine’s features are now controllable by the dashboard.
There is no mistaking that Toyota has given a great deal of time and consideration in order to create a comfortable and worthwhile control panel and interior. Many of the design features and technological benefits, such as being able to integrate the Bluetooth cell phone interface, make driving the Prius much safer, convenient and enjoyable experience.
