Toyota Prius C

Now in its second year, the Toyota Prius C is largely unchanged from the car that debuted last year. This is the smallest of the four-car Prius lineup, though like its siblings, its "dedicated hybrid" body style is only offered as a gas-electric hybrid vehicle.

Smaller and about $5, less expensive than the classic Prius Liftback, which counts as a mid-size car, the Prius C five-door hatchback falls between compact and subcompact in size. Its styling is less Space Age-y than the rest of the Prius lineup, and you might not know it's a hybrid if it weren't for the mpg EPA combined gas-mileage rating.

For value-conscious drivers and first-time buyers, the Prius C's base price of $19, offers a much more affordable--and somewhat less oddball--way to enter the Prius lineup and still get the highest gas mileage rating of any non-plug-in car sold in the U.S. this year. That mpg fuel efficiency breaks down to 53 mpg on the city cycle (higher than the Prius Liftback) and 46 mpg on the highway (lower than the Liftback), which points out how hard it is to make a very aerodynamic subcompact car.

Review continues below

The smaller, lighter hybrid gets a smaller, lighter powertrain. The liter engine puts out 73 horsepower, and is paired with a more compact Hybrid Synergy Drive system with two motor-generators. The combined powertrain puts out a maximum of 99 hp. Toyota has cleverly managed to fit both a gasoline tank and a smaller kilowatt-hour battery pack under the rear seat, meaning that the Prius C offers a full-depth load bay--unlike the Honda Insight, which has a shallower cargo area with the battery pack underneath.

On the road, the smallest Prius is surprisingly nimble and maneuverable, especially in comparison to the numb and ponderous handling of its larger siblings. But again, don't expect the dynamics of a sporty performance hatchback. Instead, the payoff is clear at the pump: In 50 miles of driving around San Diego—including freeways, two-lane roads, and stop-and-go—we saw a mpg average.

Acceleration is about on par with other economical subcompacts. But performance is definitely not a priority, with the Prius C offering an Eco mode--which reduces power output and has different climate-control settings--as well as an EV mode, for going up to a half mile on electricity only. But fans of hot hatches will notice that the Prius C has no Power or Sport mode

The Prius C is closer in size to the subcompact Toyota Yaris than to the compact Matrix hatchback, at inches long and 67 inches wide. That makes the five-door hybrid hatchback truly maneuverable and perfectly suited to big city use and tight parking spaces. The smooth, round, low front end and swept-back headlamps offer a mix of Prius and Yaris styling cues, but the upright rear reads generic subcompact--without the Prius Littback's drooping, chopped-off tail and two-part rear window. The Prius C has vertical tail lamps, a long roof spoiler, and a conventional liftgate that's more vertical than horizontal. From the rear, observers may never know it's a hybrid if they don't read the badges.

Open the door of the Toyota Prius C, and you'll see an all-new dashboard that blends a traditional Prius centrally mounted Multi Information Display just below the windshield with more conventional controls--including not the class Prius drive selector stalk sprouting from the dash, but a conventional floor-mounted chrome shift lever. Other switches and controls are recognizable from the Yaris subcompact as well.

Inside, you'll find more cabin space in the Prius C than you might suspect. Front seats feel about the same as in other Prius models; in back, two six-footers should be able to fit without any fuss--though there's no mistaking it for a mid-size car.

The material and trim quality is noticeably cheaper than what you'll find in the current Prius, though it's about average for mainstream subcompacts. Our test cars appeared to be built and assembled well, without squeaks or other glitches. Toyota has clearly worked to keep cost down, with painted metal visible inside on the window surrounds and hatchback, but the effect is thrifty rather than grim. In base Prius C One models, there's even a conventional ignition key rather than push-button start.

The Prius C was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick last year; it comes with nine standard airbags, along with all the now-typical safety aids such as electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist.

With delivery included, the base price of the Toyota Prius C is $19, for the lowest of four trim levels, the Prius C One. Even that base model comes with an impressive level of standard equipment, including automatic climate control, power accessories, keyless entry, and a sound system that includes a USB port (and iPod capability). Moving up the range, the Prius C Three includes a navigation system and Toyota's Entune interface, while the top-of-the-line Prius Four adds fog lamps, alloy wheels, and heated seats. To simply ordering (and allow for some dealer customization), there's only a single option package, consisting of alloy wheels and a moonroof bundled together.

While the Prius C costs a couple of thousand dollars more than a comparably equipped gasoline subcompact hatchback, it's likely that you can get a payback in its vastly improved fuel economy. To make the math easy, assume that a regular subcompact gets 33 mpg against the Prius C's 50 mpg. That's one extra gallon of gasoline every miles--or a possible payback in as little as 50, miles (assuming $4-a-gallon gasoline).

Your mileage may vary, as will your comparison cars, your own travel patterns, and so forth. But if you want to hedge your bets against unpredictable gasoline prices and your overall fuel costs, the Toyota Prius C is the highest-mileage inexpensive car you can buy.

Successor

The Toyota Prius c (c stands for "city"[5]), named the Toyota Aqua ("aqua" is Latin for water) in Japan, is a full hybrid gasoline-electric subcompact/superminihatchback manufactured and marketed by Toyota. The Prius c is the third member of the Prius family, and combines the features of a Yaris-sized car with a hybrid powertrain. The Prius c is priced lower than the conventional Prius and has a higher fuel economy in city driving under United States Environmental Protection Agency test cycles.[6][7] The Prius c was ranked by the EPA as the most fuel efficient compact car when plug-in electric vehicles are excluded.[8][9]

The production version of the Aqua was unveiled in the Tokyo Motor Show. The production Prius c was introduced in the U.S. at the January North American International Auto Show in Detroit.[10] The Aqua was launched in Japan in December at a price of ¥ million (US$21,).[11] Sales in several Asian markets began in January [12][13] The Prius c was released in the U.S. and Canada in March [14][15] Sales in Australia and New Zealand began in April [16][17]

The Aqua is considered the most successful nameplate launch in Japan in the last 20 years.[18] As of January&#;[update], the Aqua/Prius c is the second most sold hybrid of Toyota after the regular Prius, with 1,, units sold worldwide. Japan as the market leader with 1,, units sold through January [19] The Aqua was the top selling new car in Japan for three years in a row, from to [20][21][22]

The Prius C was discontinued in North America at the end of the model year.[23] It was also discontinued in Australia in early [4]

Prius c Concept[edit]

The Toyota Prius cconcept car was unveiled at the January North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The design takes cues from the Toyota FT-CH concept vehicle that was shown at the same event in Toyota explained that the 'c' in 'Prius c' stands for "city"-centric vehicle as it is much smaller than the normal Prius and is aimed at younger buyers without families who require little space.[5]

Together with the introduction of the production version of the Toyota Aqua at the Tokyo Motor Show, the carmaker also exhibited two other Aqua concepts, the Aqua Kiriri version and the Aqua Piriri.[24]

Specifications[edit]

Hybrid Synergy Drive of Toyota Aqua (Prius c)
Generation 3 (chainless) Hybrid Synergy Drive. The ICE-MG1 Power Split Device/MG2 Motor Speed Reduction Device HSD is shown in a sectioned and highlighted view.

Built on an enhanced and streamlined Yaris-inspired platform, the Prius c features Toyota's Generation 3 Hybrid Synergy Drive with a liter DOHC four-cylinder, 16–valve with VVT-i gasoline engine, the same engine model and displacement as on the earliest Priuses, but is now "beltless". The air conditioner is a self-contained unit containing a motor & compressor powered by the volt traction battery, and the volt battery is charged via a DC-DC converter also powered by the traction battery.[25]

Unlike earlier Prius HSDs, the Prius c incorporates separate planetary gear reduction paths for the ICE/MG (internal combustion engine/motor-generator) one, now better matched to their respective mission functions, in a significantly smaller, lighter weight package. The chain drive found in the Gen 1 and Gen 2 HSDs is also eliminated, replaced by helical gears in the Gen 3 HSD. The MG2 ratio is rather than as on earlier HSDs, thereby allowing the physical size of the MG2 to be reduced to the cross-section of the MG1. The Prius v and Prius Plug-in share this basic Gen 3 design (P transaxle, for both of these), but not its specific implementation, and which is unique to the Prius c and its lower maximum weight, and lower HSD net horsepower (P transaxle, for Prius c, North America; Prius Aqua, Japan; and Yaris Hybrid, Europe).[citation needed]

The hybrid system includes a new high-voltage battery and inverter, and a smaller auxiliary 12 volt battery. Both batteries are housed underneath the rear passenger bench seat, and are easily accessible to service personnel, yet are protected from possible collision damage by a welded tubular steel cage which also acts as support for the rear seat. Being housed underneath the passenger seat, the large high voltage traction battery does not impact the trunk space, unlike the traction battery on earlier Priuses. This location for the traction battery also significantly lowers the center of gravity of the Prius c, and improves road handling.[citation needed]

The hybrid powertrain weighs around 40&#;kg (88&#;lb) less than that of the standard Prius Liftback.[7][26] The 1NZ-FXE engine[27] produces 54&#;kW (73&#;hp) and the HSD motor is rated at 45&#;kW (60&#;hp). Total output is rated at 74&#;kW (99&#;hp).[28]

Compared to the standard Prius Liftback,[2] the 2,&#;mm (&#;in) wheelbase of the Prius C is &#;mm (&#;in) shorter, and an overall length of 4,&#;mm (&#;in) is &#;mm (&#;in) shorter. This places the Prius c in the American subcompact class. Japanese versions are also compliant with Japanese government dimension regulations which reduce tax liability (the regular Prius had exceeded it since the second generation). The use of a litre engine also reduces the annual Japanese Government road tax obligation.

Two optional driving modes are offered: "EV Mode enables electric driving for up to one mile. ECO Mode limits the operation of the climate control and adjusts throttle input to help maximize fuel economy".[29]

Fuel economy and emissions[edit]

Under the United States Environmental Protection Agency test cycles, the Prius c is rated at 48&#;mpg&#;US (&#;L/&#;km; 58&#;mpg&#;imp) city and 43&#;mpg&#;US (&#;L/&#;km; 52&#;mpg&#;imp) highway, for a combined fuel economy of 46&#;mpg&#;US (&#;L/&#;km; 55&#;mpg&#;imp).[30] The Prius c emission certification is SULEV.[2]

The Prius c was ranked by the EPA as the model year most fuel efficient compact car excluding plug-in electric vehicles. When electric-powered cars are considered, the Chevrolet Volt ranks on top of the compact car category, followed by the Prius c.[8][9]

Production[edit]

The Prius c is assembled at the Iwate Plant of Toyota Motor East Japan, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, in Kanegasaki, Iwate in northern Japan.[7] Toyota's initial production capacity for the Aqua/Prius c at this facility was 12, units per month, with a maximum production capacity of 30, units per month.[31]

Facelift updates[edit]

Pre-facelift

Second facelift

The first facelift of the Prius c was presented at the November Los Angeles Auto Show.[32] The new model has a revised front bumper and headlights similar to the GT86, with a more aggressive and aerodynamic look. The taillights are also modified, now incorporating black plastic segments towards the leading edge. The interior features metallic open/close AC vents, as well as a redesigned climate control cluster and a updated, digital speedometer interface design.

A second facelift of the Toyota Prius c was released in with minor subtle changes. Changes included; reshaping of bonnet, re-sculpted bumpers, redesigned LED c-shaped taillamps, new wheel arches.[33]

Persona Series[edit]

For the American market, the model year Persona Series was based on the model year Prius C. The Persona Series comes with a black-on-black color scheme for the exterior paint and alloy wheels. Bright color accents, available in either Electric Lime or Cherry Pearl, adorn the lower front grille, the headlight surrounds, the side mirrors, and the window trim to give a baseball theme. The Persona Series comes standard with keyless entry, automatic climate control, cloth seats, and Bluetooth. Toyota will only sell 1, of these special-edition models.[34]

Toyota Prius c Expert Review

Staff Writer

Pros

  • Ease of parking
  • Hybrid fuel economy
  • Low price for a hybrid

Cons

  • Not as fun as it looks
  • Noisy ride
  • Sluggish acceleration

The Toyota Prius C was designed to be a less expensive Prius that's better suited for the city and more fun to drive. The smaller Prius C is definitely cheaper than its standard Prius sibling, and its compact size makes navigating city streets easier, but the hybrid falls short on the engaging driving experience promised at launch.

The Toyota Prius C's underpinnings are derived from the compact Toyota Yaris' chassis, and as such the car gets a downsized Hybrid Synergy Drive system that uses the Yaris' liter I-4 mated to a CVT and electric motor. Combined output of the system is 99 hp, and the Prius C needed all of it to achieve the second mph result we got in testing. During our Car of the Year evaluation, we said, "There's no fun to be had in this car, aside from monitoring the appreciably updated Toyota hybrid graphics package. Like a regular Prius, the compact and cheaper variant is boring to drive, but has extra interior noise." We did enjoy that graphics package, however, particularly the Eco Savings display, which lets you input the fuel economy ratings of a competitor car (or any car you like) along with the price of gas and tells you how much money you're saving driving a Prius C. That savings might be significant, as the Toyota Prius C is EPA-rated at 53/46 mpg city/highway.

We also liked the rest of the Prius C's interior, which is more conventional compared to the standard Prius. The small dash-mounted shifter is replaced with a traditional center console gear selector, though the gauge cluster is still located in the center of the dashboard for all passengers to enjoy. A multi-function inch TFT display is standard, as is Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Toyota's Entune infotainment and navigation system is available.

The Toyota Prius C was named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, and was awarded a four-star overall rating from NHTSA.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
