2012 Toyota Prius C is really a true subcompact: it’s a foot-and-a-half shorter compared to normal Prius and 4.3 inches shorter than the Honda Fit , although it surpasses the Yaris by four inches. The little hybrid bellies its size having a useful 17.3 cubic feet of cargo room, that is enhanced further by a versatile hatchback configuration. Those searching for even more room should browse the Prius v, which boasts 34.3 cubic feet of stowage space.
The 2012 Toyota Prius C is powered with a 73 horsepower, 82 lb-ft of torque 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine teamed with a 60 horsepower (peak) electric motor. Combined output is 99 horsepower at any one time (hybrids require utilization of some fuzzy math). In comparison, the larger “normal” Prius utilizes a 98 horsepower, 105 lb-ft of torque 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine as well as an 80 horsepower (peak) motor unit for any combined peak output of 134 horsepower.
While its big brother may offer more power, the lighter 2012 Toyota Prius C has the capacity to eke out a draw in the realm of fuel economy: 53 mpg in the city, 46 mpg on the road and 50 mpg combined are the numbers posted by Toyota ’s smallest hybrid. The standard Prius returns 51 mpg city, 49 mpg highway and an identical 50 mpg combined.
The profile of the 2012 Toyota Prius C is similar to the wind tunnel-influenced look of other Prii, while trapezoidal air intakes around the front fascia and vertical taillamps strengthen the household resemblance. An up-swept character line along the bottom from the door panels provides a unique touch.
Inside, the layout of the dashboard conforms to Prius tradition with a center-mounted instrument display, although a conventional floor-mounted gear lever and less-futuristic center stack design are warning signs of the car’s lower price point. Black can be used as the basic interior color as the door trim, seat surfaces, and instrument panel feature lighter colors to assist create contrast.
The 2012 Toyota Prius C’s closest hybrid competitor is the larger, more expensive and less efficient Honda Insight . Conventionally powered cars such as the Hyundai Elantra , Ford Focus and Chevrolet Cruze are similar in size and value and are much quicker, but can’t come close towards the Toyota’s efficiency.
